The Covenant

Marriage Ceremony

and Policies


Photographers and Videographers:

Please see the ceremony director
upon arrival

Professional photographers may use flash during the processional and recessional only. Walking down the aisle, onto the stage or around the wedding party during the ceremony is not permitted. Videography must be taken from the back doors or balcony. 

Group pictures are limited to 30 minutes following the end of the ceremony in the sanctuary. Maintenance staff will be arriving for clean-up and set-up for Sunday services.

Arrival and Dress

The sanctuary will be unlocked one-and-a-half hours prior to the wedding. We cannot allow keys to be borrowed due to liability purposes.


The conduct and dress of the attendants at the service and the rehearsal will always reflect the proper dignity and respect for the house of worship.


First Baptist Church does not have a dressing room. The bride and the bridesmaids may slip on dresses in the balcony foyer. Please come hair and makeup ready. Mirrors and screens are available for use. 


The balcony foyer is where the bride and the bridesmaids will wait prior to the service. 


The church cannot be liable for items if damaged, lost, or stolen.

Food and Drink

Please do not bring food or drink inside the sanctuary. The only allowance is drinking water.


On the Property

No smoking in the church or on church property.


First Baptist Church is an alcohol and drug free campus. 

Rice, birdseed, bubbles or sparklers are not allowed inside the sanctuary on the portico or the steps leading to the sanctuary.
