1. Review the wedding guide for the guidelines, policies, and the necessary forms.
2. Contact Marguerite Fenton at email@example.com for date and pastor availability.
3. Your date is secure when we have received your completed application, premarital covenant, technical needs form, deposit, and pastor approval. Once we've received these items, you will be contacted by the wedding coordinator assigned to your wedding to begin discussing the details of your big day.

Believing that entering into the covenant of marriage is one of the most important decisions in life, we strongly encourage you to participate in a premarital class with your future spouse.
