We are delighted that you are considering First United Methodist Church of Pasadena for your special day. Marriage is one of the most important events in life and this church would like to help make this day a memorable one for you.
We view marriage from a Christian perspective and believe it is a physical and spiritual commitment entered into within the worshipping community of faith and intended to be life-long. We are committed to the equal treatment of all couples presenting themselves for the rite of marriage. We welcome same-gender couples and guest couples of other denominations. All weddings will be conducted by the ordained clergy of FUMC.
Situated in the heart of downtown Pasadena, the church’s traditional Gothic-style Chapel and amphitheater-style Sanctuary feature beautiful pipe organs, glowing stained glass windows and convenient access to all of the city’s amenities. The Chapel features a center aisle, an open-beamed ceiling and seats 180 guests. The Sanctuary is a majestic space that seats up to 1400 under its soaring, vaulted ceiling. The Cloister, an open-air space enclosed by beautiful stone columns and architecture, is another option for smaller weddings.
Because the Sanctuary is not air conditioned, weddings may not be held there from May through September. The Chapel is air-conditioned and available during the summer months.
We would be happy to show you the Chapel and Sanctuary any time Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please phone the church office (626-796-0157) to let us know you are coming.
