Our Sanctuary offers a setting of historic resonance and simple elegance
Congratulations on your engagement!
North Congregational Church sits on a knoll over looking North Green in historic Woodbury. Bursting with tradition and history, North Church represents the essence of New England Architecture. Designed by Asher Benjamin, our sanctuary offers a setting of historic resonance and simple elegance for your wedding. The main floor, which boasts a center aisle perfect for a classic processional, comfortably seats 250. An additional 100 may be seated in the balconies. There is ample off-street parking, and the building is handicap accessible.
THE MARRIAGE LICENSE
Connecticut State Law requires that you apply for your marriage license within 65 days before your wedding date. Couples must apply for their license in person in the town in which the couple is planning to wed. The Woodbury Town Clerk is located at 275 Main St South, Woodbury, and can be reached at (203) 263-2144. Please bring your marriage license with you at the time of the wedding rehearsal, and give it to the minister.
Most couples find that extensive flowers are not necessary, due to the beautiful simplicity of our sanctuary. Most often, couples choose to place a pair of floral arrangements on either side of the pulpit. Candlesticks may be used. Please use elastic, ties, or floral tape to attach flowers to any of the 13 rows of pews, and a runner if petals are to be scattered. If your florist needs to gain entrance to the church on the day of the wedding, please give advance notice through the church office.
Pastor Koenig and the organist of North Church are responsible for the music at all services, including weddings. Please contact them as soon as the wedding date has been finalized to discuss music selections, other musicians, soloists or instrumentalists that you wish to have participate in your wedding.
We ask that discretion be observed when photographing or videoing the wedding. Please review your photographic plans when you meet with Pastor Koenig. The sanctuary may be used for photography sessions before or after the ceremony as well.
