I surprised my wife with a wedding at First Parish Church in Waltham

I chose First Parish Church in Waltham as our wedding venue, and even though the sanctuary is magnificent, we wanted a smaller informal wedding and chose to get married in their function hall called Whitcomb Hall. My wife is a perfectionist and asked me if I could surprise her with a wedding so she wouldn't obsess about the details leading up to the wedding and during the wedding lol. So I did. The people at First Parish were really wonderful to work with. We chose to get married by Reverend Becky Sheble-Hall, the minister at First Parish and she an I had a great time planning a surprise wedding for my wife. Whitcomb Hall had all the room we needed to set up an area for our wedding ceremony and a separate area for the pre-wedding hors d'oeuvres, a bar and a sit-down buffet dinner with room left for dancing. Because the venue rental fee didn't break the bank, we were able to hire top-notch vendors for the wedding design (decorate the venue and set up the table design, buffet, bar etc.), a lighting designer, plus a caterer for the food buffet and appetizers, a local liquor store for the drinks, a local florist and a specialty baker for the cake. Our wedding designer transformed the space for us into a party atmosphere with lighting and table settings, etc. Our caterer used the commercial kitchen attached to Whitcomb Hall to cook/reheat the meals we had planned. We saved a bunch by tapping into the professional music sound system and I played my playlists via bluetooth from my phone. The whole experience went off without a hitch and we're so glad we chose this venue!

Perfect spot for our ceremony!

We recently had the pleasure of using First Parish in Waltham for our wedding, and I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. From start to finish, the staff at this church were incredibly easy to work with, accommodating, and flexible in allowing us to use the space as we desired.

One of the things that stood out to me was their excellent communication. They were always available to answer our questions and provide guidance throughout the planning process. This made everything run smoothly and made me feel confident that our wedding would be perfect.

The church itself is really beautiful. From the moment we walked in, we knew that this was the perfect venue for our wedding. The architecture and design are elegant, and it provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony.

Parking was also very easy. It may seem like a small thing, but it made a big difference on the day of our wedding. Our guests were able to park close to the church without any hassle, which made everything run smoothly.

Overall, I would highly recommend this church to anyone looking for a beautiful and accommodating venue for their wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

A lovely, inviting space

I was married at First Parish in 2010 and was so pleased with how the ceremony went. My husband and I have larger families, and the sanctuary had plenty of seating for all of our relatives and friends. Rev. Marc married us, and the ceremony was just what we wanted: personal, joyful, and brief.

The wedding party had plenty of space to get ready--we used the chapel as a dressing area, but I don't know that's still the room offered to the couple. We also used the front steps for photos of the wedding party and the family. We didn't use Whitcomb Hall or the Chapel for any other portion of the wedding.

I loved the sanctuary. The high chandeliers, the rosy glow of light filtering through the colored glass windows, and the pipe organ's music all added to the day. With the sound system, no one strained to hear the ceremony, either.

The description for the church doesn't mention the convenient off-street parking, with street parking and city lots nearby. The convenient parking was helpful! Overall, this warm and welcoming church is a wonderful place to be married.
