Planning Your Wedding


Planning to get married soon?

Royal Redeemer Lutheran Church

face_to_face_lovers.jpgCongratulations to you both on your decision to get married, and choosing to be married in a Lutheran Church.

Non-Member Wedding Information:

1.  Is your church available for weddings?
Yes, according to building availability.  Be aware that, because of our Saturday worship service, Saturday weddings must be concluded by 3:30pm.  All couples married at Royal Redeemer are required to submit a letter verifying they have participated in premarital counseling with a pastor or certified counselor.

2.  How do I book a date?
Fill out the form below, or call our Office Administrator, Jennifer Samson, at 513-779-4740.

3.  What will it cost me?
Please see the chart below for this information.  Our Wedding Facilitator will be happy to go over any questions you may have.

4.  Will the pastors marry couples outside of the church?
Our pastors do not normally conduct weddings outside of the congregation.

5.  Can we hold our reception at the church?
Our facility is currently unable to accommodate receptions.

6.  Can we throw rice, bird seed, or something similar?
Bubbles are OK.  Rice and bird seed attract the large wild geese population to our door and they can make the parking very messy.

7.  What about a musician?
You may request one of our musicians to play organ or piano for your wedding.  The charge for their service is $100.  This covers the rehearsal, prelude to the wedding, and wedding service.

8.  What will the sound technician do?
A sound technician will coordinate microphones and/or recorded music.  The charge for their service is $100.  This covers the rehearsal, and wedding service.
