Bethany Lutheran Church Wedding Services
Bethany gladly makes our church available to couples for wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners and receptions. Weddings may be conducted in the Sanctuary or Chapel, depending upon the number of guests. Receptions may be held in our recently renovated Fellowship Hall. We provide an array of support and services for weddings held in our church, including the following:
Wedding Services and Fees:
A Bethany pastor supports the wedding couple and family by:
- Conducting pre and post marital conversations; Bethany’s marital conversations consist of a survey combined with in-person meetings with the pastor.
- Leading the wedding rehearsal, along with support from the Wedding Coordinator, Officiating the ceremony, or lending support during the ceremony.
The following Bethany personnel also support the wedding party through their participation:
- Wedding Coordinator
- AV Technician
- Custodial staff
Wedding Fee: Starting at $1,450.00
This fee includes use of the Sanctuary or Chapel, and dressing rooms for the wedding couple, and their attendants, but does not include use of the Fellowship Hall or other rooms used for rehearsal dinner, receptions, or other wedding functions unless made as part of your reservation (additional fees). Additionally, the fee includes the services of Bethany personnel: Pastor, Wedding Coordinator, organist, and custodians, as well as the rehearsal, usually held the evening before the ceremony.
50% deposit is due when the Sanctuary or Chapel is reserved; payment can be submitted by check or through Bethany’s website (Bethany-denver.org; choose the Giving tab, then select payments under the Mobile and More heading). Please select: Payments and Fees-Non-deductible. The balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding date.
Rehearsal Dinner/Reception Fee: Starting at $550.00
The Reception fee covers use of the Fellowship Hall and kitchen for up to five (5) hours, as well as use of Bethany’s tables and chairs. Usually plan on two (2) hours for prep and setup, and the remainder of time for the event. Additional time may be added to your reservation as needed.
Bethany’s Wedding Coordinator and personnel will meet with you personally to plan your wedding ceremony and other items selected.
