Weddings at Old Stone Church
At Old Stone Church, weddings are occasions of both joy and reverence—joy because of the love and happiness that the bride and groom have found in each other, and reverence because of the commitment they have made to live out their vows under the grace of God.
The staff of Old Stone is eager to help make your wedding a lovely and meaningful event and asks your careful attention to the following guidelines. The church receives many wedding requests; these guidelines are necessary to facilitate planning and to provide clarity both for you and for the church.

Old Stone provides a wedding administrator to oversee the arrangements and details of the wedding service. Once the wedding date is confirmed on our calendar by the Wedding Administrator, she will meet with you to discuss the guidelines and answer questions about arrangements, minister, music, fees and the use of the church facilities.
