About Valley Presbyterian Church

OUR WEDDING MINISTRY 650-851-2848 wedding@valleypreschurch.org

From our breathtaking sanctuary to our wooded grounds, Valley Presbyterian Church draws on the purity of the natural world to enhance your spiritual experience. "There's a sense of peace here," explains one congregant. "You feel like a part of Nature, and thus closer to God."

The heart of Valley Presbyterian Church is the awe-inspiring sanctuary. The sanctuary's simplicity and unpretentious beauty evoke serenity and wonder. Guests enter through four heavy wooden doors, richly carved with images of New Testament figures. Flanking each side of the church are stone planters filled with lush greenery. Oak pews are upholstered in rich green fabric, and dark beams accent the A-frame pine ceiling. Polished riverbed stones in the washed aggregate floor echo the sanctuary's earthy aesthetic.

However, it's the soaring sanctuary windows behind the communion table that take your breath away. They frame a grove of majestic redwood trees reaching heavenward, often with a filigree of sunbeams streaming through. Guests face this magnificent forest scene, while from the steps below the communion table the bridal party enjoys its own striking tableau. The tall stained-glass panel above the front doors depicts a simple golden Celtic cross in a blue-toned mosaic. When the sun shines through it, the amber cross is reflected across the church onto the view of the redwoods, and seems to float mysteriously in the air— a sparkling vision that heightens the mood of peaceful reverence.

If there is a wedding in your future, we would be delighted to share in the celebration of your love and invite you to celebrate your marriage in our lovely sanctuary among the redwoods. You do not need to be members of our church family in order to be married in our church; however, it is necessary that the ceremony be a Christian service. Our wedding staff will help make your wedding and the beginning of your marriage both memorable and a meaningful celebration.

    Amazing ceremony venue

    The back drop for the ceremony is STUNNING!! I love the large glass windows with the beautiful trees in the background. I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled we are to have our ceremony here. Cathy, the coordinator is super helpful and great with communication. Just as a heads up, she is quicker to respond via phone than with email. But overall, we are so happy with our venue.

    This was our favorite vendor to work with by far. They were responsive, supportive, and even though they do a lot of weddings, they made ours feel special and truly cared for us as individuals. We weren't affiliated with the church, but the pastor who officiated took the time to get to know us so she could customize the ceremony for us. The church is so beautiful that you don't need to spend a lot on flowers.
