Weddings and Receptions
St. Mark’s has several options for couples who are planning a wedding: from a simple, private setting with the couple and witnesses, to an extravagantly-decorated sanctuary full of the wedding party and guests. Couples are guided through all of the options by the Wedding Coordinator, Lisa Odom. As a result, each wedding is unique and tailored to the desires of the couple.
Pastor Alan and other pastors in the St. Mark’s community are available to officiate wedding ceremonies. St. Mark’s facility is available to couples not wishing to utilize our pastors, with approval of the Senior Pastor and Board of Trustees.
