Wedding Guidelines at Celebration Community Church
Congratulations on your engagement! Christian marriage is a covenant through which a man and a woman are called to live out their lives of discipleship together before God. A wedding service at Celebration Community Church is a service of Christian worship -- one celebrating publicly the love of two people coming together in marriage but also a celebration of a love greater than our own. It is with this understanding that we offer the following guidelines for planning your wedding ceremony in our church.
1. When you are ready to commit to a date and time for your wedding, please call (303-756-4994) and leave a message containing your email address and requesting a Wedding Agreement form. Click here to see a blank copy of the form.
2. When the completed Wedding Agreement form and a $100 deposit is returned to Celebration, your date will be put on the master calendar and a Celebration host/coordinator will contact you to set up an initial planning appointment. At that time, many of your questions will be discussed.
3. The wedding rehearsal generally takes place the day before the wedding service. A Celebration host/coordinator will be responsible for directing the rehearsal so that everyone is comfortable and prepared.
Note: if you desire to have a minister from Celebration perform an off-site wedding (e.g. in the mountains, a park, a hotel), the facilities, site coordinator, sound and custodian fees will be waived. However, extra expenses may be assessed for travel, hotels and meals. There is a $100 non-refundable fee to secure your wedding date on our master calendar. You are most welcome to host your wedding reception at Celebration. You are responsible for procuring a caterer, linens, tableware, etc. Celebration is not responsible for any items rented for your wedding/reception. The wedding party is also responsible for hiring additional personnel such as musicians, wedding coordinator, etc.
The wedding couple assumes responsibility for all damage resulting to church property from actions of the wedding party, family members and guests.
PLEASE NOTE: No one is authorized to use any equipment or rooms other than those included in the Wedding Agreement form. The following is a partial list of items that ARE NOT included with building use unless permission is granted and applicable fees for use (and operation by staff, if applicable) are paid before the event: --The stages and soundboards in the Chapel and/or Allen Hall (no one is allowed on the stages or in the sound areas unless expressly included in this agreement) --Audio-visual equipment, including microphones and speakers --Musical instruments --Appliances --Computers --Furniture and supplies outside of the room(s) being used --Allen Hall coffeemaker --Dinnerware/paper goods --Food, beverages, condiments.

DECORATIONS & DELIVERIES
Please place all flowers and decorations so that they do not damage wood, carpet or furnishings. If you are using fresh flowers and greenery, you should check with your florist to confirm he or she will use drip pans and clean the floor after the plants have been removed. If you have floral arrangements or greenery which you plan to leave at the church, please notify the church administrator--we appreciate getting another use from your beautiful flowers. Masking tape or gaffer’s tape are the only tapes that will not damage floors or fixtures. Duct tape, Scotch tape and nails are not permitted. If you are renting candelabra, only dripless, smokeless candles are allowed, and plastic must be put down under all candles you use.
Deliveries of cake, flowers, etc. on the wedding day should be scheduled to arrive when the wedding party is on the premises. It’s a good idea to appoint someone to intercept these deliveries.
Your payment to the custodian for clean-up includes the following: After the event they will clean bathrooms, take out trash and return the room(s) to weekend specifications. Their fee does NOT INCLUDE taking down decorations. It is your responsibility to take care of this. Any decorations that you put up at the wedding must be taken down that evening. Your security/cleaning deposit can be withheld if this condition is not met.
The church does not provide either catering or people to serve. You will need to make your own arrangements for food. You may use the refrigerator and freezer to store food for the reception if space is available.
