The First Parish in Cambridge has hosted many beautiful weddings in its historic meetinghouse, and looks forward to working with many more couples to assist them with their wedding day.

The Unitarian Universalist Parish welcomes the celebrations of both members and non-members of their community.

First Parish in Cambridge Venue Options

A congregation minister of First Parish Cambridge must conduct all weddings held there unless a guest clergyperson is approved of in advance by First Parish in Cambridge.

While certain ministers may be only available for members, you may find a Parish minister able to officiate a non-member wedding including bi-lingual ceremonies in Spanish or Portuguese. They may also direct you to other Unitarian Universalist ministers who are generally available.

Those who host their ceremony in the Meetinghouse may raise their guest list from 400 to 600 with the addition of the balcony, and those looking for an intimate wedding might prefer the Crothers Chapel with a seating capacity of 80. You may also keep your rehearsal dinner or reception on-site by renting the Parlor or the Barn Room.
