Celebrate Your Wedding at MCC of the Blue Ridge!
Metropolitan Community Church of the Blue Ridge offers couples the opportunity to celebrate the sacred moment of marriage!
As same gender marriage is now legal in the United States, we celebrate the gift of love and the opportunity for you to have your celebration in a beautiful, sacred space that fully welcomes all people.
Weddings may be scheduled through the MCC of the Blue Ridge office at 540-344-4444. Couple must be together for at least one year before having a wedding at the church. The couple is also required to meet with the Pastor 3-4 times prior to the ceremony for pre-marriage counseling and preparation of the ceremony.
Our office administrator can provide you with building usage fees for the sanctuary and other rooms in the church building.
Additional guidelines include the following:
- Each person participating must be 18 or older. While the legal age to marry in Virginia is 16 and persons under 18 must have the legal consent of a parent or guardian, MCCBR is asking that all persons participating be at least 18 and in a relationship with the person they are sharing vows for at least one year. While same gender marriage is not legal in Virginia, ceremonies of holy union and marriage are sacred and honored as such.
- Ceremonies will not be performed for persons who are intoxicated. These ceremonies are offered in the spirit of sacred worth and respect for all who participate and witness.
We look forward to assisting you in planning this sacred moment in your life together!
