I loved my Officiant! I am Catholic and my Husband is Agnostic, so I knew right away the Catholic church was out of the question. We agreed that we wanted to have a nice civil ceremony, but with Religious notes. Rev. Morehouse was the perfect pick! We met with him in his office and my husband and I both spoke about our families and asked for how we could incorporate religious traditions without offending anyone. Rev. Morehouse gave us a sample of one of his ceremonies that he used and it was just what we were looking for! Plus the ceremony wasn't a long winded ceremony. About 30 minutes tops so that the guests were antsy in their chairs! We couldn't ask for anyone better!Sent on 09/26/2008

Amazing location overlooking the Southbay! They are very welcoming no need to be Unitarian to use venue. Eveyone there went beyond their duties before and after the wedding day. Its ideal for an outdoor ceremony, but has a nice space for indoor weddings as well. Had the reception there too, has a great kitchen. Use of the bride room and grooms room were great, there's a playground to keep the little ones entertained.Sent on 07/11/2008
At night, everything is dark and you get an amazing view of the city.

First, disclosure: My family has been members of this church since before I was born, so I was brought up in this congregation. As such, I did not pay to rent the site for the ceremony or reception.Sent on 06/01/2015
That being said, PUC is a lovely blank slate. Lovely in that it has been recently updated with fresh flooring and paint and has a nice shaded patio and beautiful views of the South Bay and the ocean. A blank slate in that most anything can be done to it: the colors are neutral, the floor is wide open, the walls are bare. The church has a full kitchen, guest bathrooms, and a bride's room with couches, mirrors, and a bathroom of its own.
Lynn, the day-of wedding coordinator is one of the most efficient people I've met. She knows exactly what questions to ask beforehand in order to set up the church and its grounds exactly as you want them, she runs the rehearsal quickly, and she is everywhere you need her to be on the big day. Her planning and assistance was well worth her $300 fee.
Reverend John, the lead minister at PUC, is very warm and has a charming sense of humor. He has a basic outline for a wedding ceremony which he has drawn from long experience performing such ceremonies. He is open to adding or subtracting from that service as the bride and groom want and he can also add in traditions from many faith backgrounds. Again, he was well worth his $350 fee.
The church is in flux right now, with volunteers manning the office and Reverend John preparing to move to a new appointment on the East Coast. As such, I occasionally had to call or email more than one person to make a request or get a question answered, since the first person I spoke to didn't necessarily have the answers I needed. I didn't find this to be particularly stressful. All my concerns were addressed in a timely fashion.
