I surprised my wife with a wedding at First Parish Church in Waltham
Perfect spot for our ceremony!
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
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.
