First Congregational Church is a beautiful
and sacred place for your wedding.

Our historic and recently renovated Sanctuary, with its towering ceiling rafters, stained glass windows, and rich warm wood, is awe-inspiring and filled with light. The Sanctuary seats 350 people. Click here for a Virtual Tour of the sanctuary.

Our contemporary Chapel is an architectural gem. Because the space is circular, worship participants face one another, an experience that adds to the intimacy of the ceremony. The seating is flexible, and the Chapel will accommodate up to 60 people. Click here for a Virtual Tour of the Chapel.

Our large Fellowship Hall or the Church’s outside patio may also be reserved for a reception. The Sanctuary, Chapel, and Fellowship Hall are all air conditioned.


Downtown Boulder Location

Conveniently located at Broadway and Pine in downtown Boulder, the church is across the street from the Hotel Boulderado and is also less than 1/2 mile from the St. Julien Hotel, the Rembrandt Yard, and the Pearl Street Mall. The small parking lot belonging to the church is available for your use, and adjacent to our building are a city parking lot and parking garage.

Personalized Ceremony

One of the church’s Ministers will officiate at your wedding and will meet with you at least three times to discuss the details of your wedding service, to personalize your ceremony, and for premarital counseling.

Our Music Director will assist you in choosing the music that is just right for your ceremony. We have one of the finest organs in the Rocky Mountain region, which will make your procession down our 100-foot aisle a truly memorable experience. Of course, other types of music – strings, harp, guitar, woodwinds,  piano – are also possible and sound wonderful in our acoustically friendly space.

We provide a knowledgeable and experienced ceremony coordinator who will be your personal consultant throughout your planning process, at the rehearsal, and for the wedding ceremony itself.

In keeping with First Congregational Church’s commitment to inclusivity, anyone is welcome to get married here – straight or gay, marrying for the first time  or another time around, non-members, and non-believers. We are glad to help you make sacred promises to each other.
