WE WELCOME ALL.  Gay and straight, young and old, you are welcome at First Congregational Church of La Grange.  We are a church with a grand staircase, vaulted ceilings, and a sanctuary that comfortably seats 250 people.  We would love to be a part of your special day!

Welcome to First Congregational Church of La Grange, where we joyfully marry couples of all ages, from all cultures, races and sexual orientations. The use of our lovely air conditioned, handicap-accessible facility is available to both members and non-members and we would be honored to have you celebrate your wedding in our church.

We have two beautiful spaces from which to choose for your wedding ceremony. Our sanctuary, built in 1906 features a traditionally elegant atmosphere complete with spectacular stained glass windows, a vaulted ceiling and rich dark woods throughout. It seats up to 400 guests, although a gathering of 75 or more does not feel lost in the setting. We also offer the Chapel of the Beatitudes, this chapel provides a more intimate setting for up to 75 guests.

We have a minister available to perform your ceremony but we also welcome other ministers of your choice to officiate. It is not required to have an officiating minister from our church.

We offer music options for your wedding as well, for more details please contact the main office at

If you wish to host your wedding reception at First Congregational Church, we offer two options: the Founders’ Room or the Drawing Room. The Founders’ Room accommodates larger groups, while the Drawing Room is suitable for a smaller reception. Both options have kitchen facilities readily accessible for use by the caterer of your choice.
