About Weddings at Northbrae
Scheduling Your Wedding and Rehearsal
To schedule your wedding at Northbrae, please call or email our office administrator. Be prepared to let us know the dates you are interested in, and the times of your ceremony, rehearsal, and reception if applicable.
Reservations for rehearsal dinners and/or receptions can be made at the same time you book your wedding. We have two rooms available for wedding receptions. The Parlor will accommodate 60-80 guests, depending on table usage. Haver Hall will accommodate 150-250 people. See our rental venues page for pricing and more details.
Guest officiant(s) are welcome to perform your wedding at Northbrae. If you would like Northbrae’s minister to perform your wedding ceremony, please schedule an appointment with the minister through our office. The minister will work with you to create a ceremony. The minister’s fee is $300.
Northbrae can provide an organist or pianist for weddings. The fee is $300 for the first hour, and an additional $100 for any time after that. The fee includes a free consultation. You can contact the musician through the church office. It is our experience that the organist is not needed at the rehearsal. If you would like the organist there, the fee is $75. Although guest organists are restricted, a Mason-Hamlin grand piano is available for soloists and accompanists.
We recommend the wedding license be given to the Minister at your rehearsal.
You are responsible for ensuring that all family and friends who help with the wedding understand Northbrae’s guidelines and policies.
Directions to Northbrae Community Church are here. There are two parking lot entrances, as well as ample street parking on the weekends.

On Use of Northbrae Facilities
As a community church, Northbrae is open to anyone for landmark celebrations. We feel this kind of ministry is important. We agree to provide facilities during the hours of your rental. Other events scheduled by the church make it impossible to extend the contracted time. Additionally, Northbrae may be involved in repairs, remodeling or renovations of our facilities and gardens from time to time. We make every effort not to have these activities interfere with your event, and to have our facilities in order and ready for your usage. Nevertheless, Northbrae makes no guarantee as to the condition of the grounds and facilities due to renovation and unforeseen repair.
