Congratulations! As the minister of First Parish, I am so happy you are considering us for your wedding. First Parish welcomes wedding inquiries from people of all backgrounds.

If you 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 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 support you in creating a personalized and meaningful ceremony.
