INFORMATION ABOUT HOLDING YOUR WEDDING AT PERU COMMUNITY CHURCH

Click here for Wedding Info (DOCX)

The planning of your  wedding is one of life’s happiest occasions.  We are pleased you are  considering the Peru Community Church for your ceremony.

MEETING THE PASTOR
Our pastor is Rev. Peggi Eller.  The prospective bride and groom should  meet with the pastor well in advance of the wedding. You should expect  to meet with her at least twice before your wedding.  This is the time  to discuss marital topics and for the pastor to better know the bride  and groom. Please know that all discussions are strictly confidential to the three of you. The pastor is a trained professional and you should  feel at ease with her. You may contact the Pastor directly at  PastorPeggi@gmail.com or by calling the church office to set up a time  for an initial meeting.


MARRIAGE LICENSE
Your Marriage License should be given to the Pastor at the Rehearsal who will retain it until it is signed.


ORGANIST/PIANIST
Arrangements for a musician and other musicians or vocalists are the responsibility  of the bride and groom. Our church musician can be asked to perform for  your wedding.  He plays both the organ and the piano.


REHEARSAL
It is customary to have the wedding rehearsal on the evening of the  wedding. The time of the rehearsal is arranged with the Pastor. Please assure that all members of the wedding party are aware and able to  attend the rehearsal.


HAVING ANOTHER PASTOR
It is important to understand that the use of the sanctuary of the church  by another pastor is at the discretion of the appointed pastor.  If you  have a family pastor who is presently located in another parish and you  would like him/her to perform the service, please contact the pastor of  the Peru Community Church first and allow her to contact the other  pastor and make arrangements.


PICTURES AND VIDEO CAMERAS
Photographers can make or break the atmosphere of your wedding.  Professional  photographers can contact the pastor directly to see the Church  Sanctuary and determine the best location for capturing your wedding in  advance of the ceremony. If you are having an amateur photographer or  video operator record your ceremony, they are required to attend the  rehearsal to understand the limitations of movement before, during and  after the ceremony.


FEES (Subject to change)

- Use of the Sanctuary is $200, paid 30 days in advance (Payable to Peru Community Church)
- The Pastor’s professional fee is $300. (Payable to The Rev. Peggi Eller)
- The musician fee(s) are negotiated between the applicable parties.

 SPECIAL NOTES

Please plan to take  photographs immediately following the ceremony and to finish in a timely manner (generally 1 hour is sufficient).

As a courtesy for all involved, the rehearsal and the wedding will begin at the appointed time.
