Congratulations!

The Weddings Team at Bent Tree is excited to be a part of your wedding. Marriage is such an important step in the life of the bride and the groom, and we want to create an environment that is honoring for you, your family and friends, and the community gathered for your event. We have set up these pages to help guide you through the process of booking, planning, and helping you implement your event here at Bent Tree. 

To begin the process, start by contacting our Wedding Coordinator through the inquiry form below. The couple will need to be prepared to submit an application for booking the event and discuss their intent with the officiating Bent Tree pastor (if using an outside pastor, please consult the Outside Officiating Pastor Agreement on the Get Started page).

When the wedding application has been approved a $1000 deposit will be due to confirm the wedding reservation. Additional fees might apply based on the couple's membership status at Bent Tree, and other facility and technical needs for the event.

Statement of Marriage

No activity on church property may contradict the purpose or doctrine of Bent Tree, whether the activity has an overt religious purpose (preaching, worship services, Bible instruction, communion, baptism, weddings, funerals) or an implied religious purpose (social service, community service, mentorship, benevolence, charity, schools). In addition, church property is exclusively reserved for persons and organizations whom acknowledge and adhere to Bent Tree’s Statement of Faith and position on marriage. Bent Tree’s position on marriage affirms the biblical understanding of marriage as a sacred covenant between one man (created by God and born as a man) and one woman (created by God and born as a woman). This conviction shapes all Bent Tree practices including weddings hosted at the church.

My husband and I have been married for three years and have a dog named Max. We have been together for more than 10 years, and started dating when we were in high school!

Bent Tree has been my church home for more than 15 years, and it has been a joy to watch it grow and transform. My vision is to help couples find Christ for themselves and for their marriage, to help make these special events go smoothly, and continue to spread the grace and generosity of Bent Tree.

My greatest blessing is my family with my husband, Billy. We have been both blessed and challenged with three daughters. Currently, I also serve at Bent Tree with the kindergarteners as a large group storyteller.

I’m excited to help couples enter into marriage as I know how much it has made my life full.

I have been attending Bent Tree since 2009 and have found my second home here. Before shifting into the life of a stay-at-home mom to my four little boys, I worked as an interior designer in the hospitality industry. God has given me a love of beauty, coordination, efficiency, and love.

I look forward to being a part of such a special day and allowing God to use me as he sees fit in each couple's life, even if only for a few short hours.
