Dream Day in a Historic Setting

The wedding coordinator at the venue was very professional and in constant communication with us and our planner. He definitely takes personal joy in making this beautiful venue perfect for the wedding day. Definitely chip in the extra $$$ for an organist. This organ is huge and powerful. It adds quite a lot to the atmosphere.

Beautiful Church

First Presbyterian was a beautiful location for our August wedding! The planning process was straightforward and everyone was great to work with. At one point, we made a mistake with our event insurance. The FPC team was quick to reach out and they were understanding and patient as we quickly resolved the issue. For the rehearsal and the day of, Bill was incredibly thorough and made sure everything was ready to go. We love all of our photos in and around the church, it is a stunning location. Thank you, First Pres, for helping make our day so special!

This church is GORGEOUS! As I was being married in the winter, I knew that I wanted to be married in a setting that would be great for indoor pictures! The staff was so easy to work with and so helpful! I am so thankful I picked out this church!

We had the pleasure of working with Travis Hulse, Event Manager at First Presbyterian Church, at a recent wedding we photographed. Travis was extremely helpful, accommodating, kind, and professional. He met with us a couple of weeks before the wedding to show us the church and recommended areas available for photography, and he was present on the wedding day making sure that things ran smoothly. First Presbyterian is the most beautiful church we have shot in, and Travis felt like a true partner in what we were trying to accomplish through our photography. We can't wait for our next wedding there!
