About First Congregational Church of Los Angeles

If you want a church ceremony, FCCLA is your ceremony venue! The main sanctuary is reminiscent of the old churches in Europe, featuring Neogothic architecture and the home to the world’s largest and oldest working church pipe organ (just under 20,000 pipes). We also have varied reception areas including outdoor courtyards, a banquet hall, and historical parlors. FCCLA is completely open to all couples wanting to get married. Happily welcoming same-sex as well as inter faith couples. Two ceremony venues to choose from: Sanctuary which fits up to 1000 guests, or Shatto Chapel which fits up to 100 guests. These two ceremony venues are hidden gems in the heart of LA. For more information or to book a venue tour, please email weddings@fccla.org.

    We live out of state and so choosing a ceremony location was difficult. We then stumbled upon FCCLA after looking online. Choosing FCCLA for our ceremony was the best decision we made regarding our wedding. We had our wedding weeks ago and guests are still raving about the church/ceremony and how beautiful it was. Our first initial visit to the church took our breath away. It's architecture/style is stunning.

    Rev. Ryan & Joanna were amazing to work with and guided us through everything. They were professional and organized and our wedding day went off without a hitch. Rev. Ryan made us feel comfortable and welcome and made our special day memorable.

    We highly recommend FCCLA. This is a church that will give you beautiful memories for a lifetime!

    If you take nothing else away from this review, just know that our experience with the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles for our wedding was absolutely superb from start to finish, and we have no hesitations recommending them to anyone looking for a breathtaking venue for their wedding.

    We began planning for our wedding one year ago and had researched quite a few LA-area venues online. This was the first one we arranged to see, and while we had others in mind, the moment we walked into the sanctuary, we decided that this was where we wanted to get married. The main sanctuary simply has to be seen to be believed (pictures hint at its beauty, but ultimately do not do it justice). It is immense, gorgeous, grand, and simply breathtaking. Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful the church was, and we cannot imagine having gotten married anywhere else.

    What we are most excited to recommend to others, however, is the fantastic team that has been assembled at FCCLA. We worked with Craig and his team from day one, and the energy and enthusiasm they brought to the proceedings cannot be overstated. Craig in particular was incredibly diligent throughout, quick in responding to all of my inquiries, and thorough in his responses. He coordinated with all the members of his team to accommodate us in all of our various idiosyncratic requests (song requests, use of church equipment, finding a spot for our puppy bar...), and on the day of he was instrumental in helping everything come together (even staying until the very end of the night to snap some last pictures for us). We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed working with him and the rest of his team.

    All in all: our wedding day was one of the best days of our lives, and this is in large part thanks to Craig and his team. Five stars, ten out of ten, two thumbs up, etc. etc. etc. Simply a beautiful experience.

    We love working at the venue. All the staff is very accommodating and friendly. When we setup for a past event, everything was setup upon arrival and the staff was so nice to help us out since it was pouring hard when we were unloading our flowers.
