We share in your happiness as you move forward with your wedding plans and begin the beautiful adventure of marriage. In the Christian wedding, a man and woman come before God, before the witness of our families and dearest friends to make vows to one another and to God’s plan for their marriage. We believe that the wedding service is a worship service uniting a man and a woman in the covenant of love as God has designed. Our ministers and staff will gladly work with you to plan a wedding the will be meaningful to both of you. General Information
Cy-Fair Christian Church is available to members of any Christian denomination; however, it is expected that one of our CFCC pastors will perform the ceremony unless otherwise approved.
The use of the services of a CFCC Wedding Coordinator is required. The wedding is responsible to assist the wedding party in the use of the facilities and with all ceremonial functions. She ensures that all church policies are respected. The coordinator will be present at the rehearsal and at the wedding to answer questions, help with problems that might arise, and help keep everything on schedule. Once a wedding date has been reserved, you will be contacted by your wedding coordinator. Wedding receptions may be held on campus based on room availability. You are responsible for decoration, set-up and immediate clean-up of the room. Consult your wedding coordinator for availability and fees.
Scheduling Reservations should be made at least 90 days in advance. Weddings may be scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays subject to the availability of the Worship Center. No weddings may be scheduled on church holidays such as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Good Friday, or Easter.
The fee for non-members of CFCC is $1,500 and members $1,000. This is a set fee and includes: the Worship Center, pastor, wedding coordinator, pianist, sound technician, janitorial services and premarital counseling. We do not offer a discount for services not used.
Additional services such as soloists, instrumental musicians or other services may be arranged for an additional fee. Check with your wedding coordinator for more information or recommendations. A $100 non-refundable deposit must be made before the wedding date can be confirmed. The remainder must be paid to your wedding coordinator by the Monday before the wedding.
Our elders have created a document that contains CFCC’s stance on the Biblical teaching concerning marriage and CFCC’s views relative to current rulings by the US Supreme Court in 2015. You can read that document here.
The serving of alcoholic beverages is not permitted on church property.
On the day of the ceremony, the facility will be yours to use for three hours. It will be opened 1-1/2 hours before the start time of the service. At this time the florist and photographer may begin their set-up. All personal items must be removed from the building by 1-1/2 hours after the service.
Throwing rice, confetti, or birdseed is not allowed. Bubbles or balloons are recommended.
Smoking is not permitted inside the buildings.
The marriage license must be presented to the minister before the wedding can be performed. This may be done at the rehearsal.
To ensure that the dignity and sacredness of the wedding ceremony is maintained, musical selections should be made only after consultations with one of the church pianists.
Photographs may be taken in the sanctuary prior to or immediately following the ceremony. Flash photographs may be taken during the processional, if care is taken not to distract or detract from the bridal party. All photographs taken during the ceremony must be made without flash. Photographers should position themselves so as not to be a distraction and should not move around in the sanctuary during the ceremony.
Video may be taken in the sanctuary prior to, during, or immediately following the ceremony. No back lighting may be used during the ceremony. Video may be taken during the processional if care is taken not to distract from the bridal party. An unmanned camera on a tripod may be placed in front of the sanctuary and turned on 15 minutes prior to the service. Videographers should position themselves so as not to be a distraction and should not move around in the sanctuary during the ceremony.
Floral arrangements and candelabras appropriate for the wedding ceremony may be used if desired. In order to preserve the sanctuary, special care should be taken to protect the carpet and sanctuary furniture. Only dripless paradise candles may be used. Protective coverings must be placed under candelabras to keep melted wax from dripping on the floor. Real flower petals can cause stains and may not be used, but silk petals are acceptable. If an aisle cloth is to be used, it must be positioned, ready to roll out well before guests arrive. The use of thumb tacks, nails, screws, glue, or tape to attach decorations is strictly prohibited. Because more than one wedding may be scheduled on the same date, all decorations must be removed immediately following the ceremony.
