Does PPMCC perform weddings? Yes, our clergy are licensed and happy to perform weddings–both heterosexual and same-sex weddings.
Who? Those wishing to make a commitment may be any persons, at least 18 years or older, in a relationship, wishing to publicly profess their love.
Legal? Yes, weddings performed at Pikes Peak MCC are legal.
Where? To make arrangements to use our facility, please contact us. Weddings can also be performed virtually anywhere (like at a home, in the mountains, in a park, etc.) Additional fees may be required for mileage or other costs incurred for ceremonies outside the Colorado Springs area.
When? A wedding can be scheduled most any time, dependent upon the availability of clergy. It is recommended that a couple plan their ceremony at least 3 to 6 months in advance.
How elaborate does it have to be? Some couples wish to have a very simple and brief ceremony; others elect to include attendants, family, special readings, and music. Each ceremony is planned during pre-ceremony meetings with our Pastor.
Are there costs for weddings? A quality occasion requires careful planning with the assistance of professional staff. Therefore, there is a schedule of fees for staff services and donations for use of facilities. The actual costs will vary depending on the type of service and its location. Simply contact the church for more details.
What about enhancements? Flowers, photography, invitations, ushers, or any reception are the responsibility of the couple. We will gladly offer suggestions or ideas to assist you.
How do we get started?
PPMCC will help you along each step of your ceremony planning to help make it as stress-free, smooth, and joyful as possible. To get started, you should call the church office at 719.634.3771 and set up a meeting with the pastor.
