Congratulations! I am so happy that you are considering First Parish in Lexington for your wedding. First Parish maintains a beautiful, historic building situated on the Battle Green where the Revolutionary War began on April 19, 1775. In the sanctuary, the period chandeliers, pews made of pine, and the historic 1897 Hutchings tracker organ create a romantic and memorable setting for your important day.
First Parish welcomes wedding inquiries from people of all backgrounds. You do not have to be a member of this church, or of any church, to be married here. If you consider yourself “spiritual but not religious,” or are looking for a more open-minded faith community, you will be delighted by our non-dogmatic approach both to religion and to your marriage ceremony. Couples from differing faiths as well as couples of the same sex are welcome.
First Parish is a church grounded in liberal principles that value each person and which recognizes that a person’s spirituality evolves over time, sustained by a loving community and informed by many sources. As a minister in this open and supportive religious tradition, I will work with you to create a personalized and meaningful ceremony. I am also willing to work with couples who are planning to have their ceremony at a site other than our historic church.
If you are interested in having your wedding at First Parish, please contact the Church office or our wedding event manager. We would be pleased to be part of your plans for this happy occasion and look forward to meeting you
