A wedding is a sacred ritual in our church. Members of East End and children of East End members are welcomed to be married here. This information is prepared in the hope that it will help you in the planning for one of the most significant events of your life.
When scheduling a wedding please keep in mind that a minister from East End must perform the marriage ceremony. If you wish a relative or family friend to assist in the ceremony, you must discuss that with the East End minister, as they must invite any assisting clergy. The East End organist will provide the music for weddings. Music selections must be appropriate for a service of worship at East End United Methodist Church and must be approved by the music staff.
To schedule a wedding:
1.Contact the church office (615-227-3272) to check the church calendar to see if your requested date is available. If the date is available, you will be asked to read our wedding policy.
2. After reviewing the information, you must contact Rev. Judi Hoffman. She will approve the wedding and counsel with each bridal couple.
3. After Rev. Hoffman has approved the wedding and the agreement has been signed and received (along with the deposit), then the wedding can be officially booked on the church calendar.
Weddings will not be performed at East End on these days: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Palm Sunday, any day during Holy Week (including the day before Easter), Easter Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Sundays.
