WEDDINGS

274_AlexFellner_HRM

Our ornate stained glass windows, marble pillars and delicately crafted wood altar are the ideal backdrop for your exchange of vows and bridal party photos. Our Rector, Rev. Wendy Mencel, is an experienced wedding Officiant who adds equal parts warmth and wit to our traditional Anglican wedding liturgy, which is informed by the Book of Alternative Services. We offer both communion and non-communion liturgies depending upon your preference and to assist you in selecting readings for the service, we have compiled an easy-to-navigate booklet of love-themed scriptural texts. Our gifted Organist and Music Director, Ryan Marttala, will set the stage for a truly touching ceremony with his beautiful traditional playing. Again, for your convenience, you will be provided with a list of popular liturgical and classical wedding hymns from which you’ll be able to easily make selections. Though we are an Anglican church, being of the same denomination is not required in order to be married at St. John’s Arva. We simply ask for a nominal donation of $1500 toward our Restoration Fund. In addition to assisting us with the maintenance of our historic church, your donation covers honoraria for our minister, organist and administrator as well as the cost of a marriage preparatory course, should this be of interest to you. Our Sanctuary is able to accommodate up to 180 guests.

Celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony is the first major milestone in your journey together as a married couple:

“As husband and wife give themselves to each other in love, they shall grow together and be united in that love.” ~ BAS, Page 528

For such a special day, we offer a special place. Please contact us to set up an appointment with Rev. Wendy. We offer you blessings as you embark on this wonderful new journey together.
