Marriage is a gift God has given all humankind for the well being of the entire human family.

A marriage ceremony is an act of worship. It is an occasion in which, in the context of the praise of God, the wisdom and counsel of the Scriptures, and the power of prayer, two persons exchange commitments and seek God’s blessing on their union.

With joy, we celebrate weddings at First Presbyterian Church for members of the church and their families. If you are currently not a member and wish information about joining the church, please call for dates of Inquirers’ Classes, which are held several times a year.


Congratulations on your decision to marry. The date and time for your wedding (and rehearsal) should be set as early as possible.

The first step to scheduling your wedding at First Presbyterian Church is to complete our wedding application. To download a wedding application form, click here or complete the online application below.

When the application is received, the church administrative assistant, Lisa Polite, (212-675-6150) will schedule the date with the appropriate members of the church staff, including the minister who will perform the ceremony, the organist, and sexton. If the church calendar permits, and staff are available your date will be placed on the church calendar and you will receive a written confirmation, normally within a week after the application is received. You will also receive a Wedding booklet intended to assist you in preparing for your ceremony.

We want to do all we can to make your preparations as informed and simple as possible. As you make plans please call the church office if you have any questions or need clarification about information provided in the Wedding booklet.
