Weddings & Vow Renewals
Congratulations on your engagement & upcoming wedding!
If you’re considering having your wedding at Blackhawk Church, would like to use a Blackhawk officiant at an offsite location or are simply looking for support in preparing for your marriage, you’ve come to the right place.
Please complete a couple profile form to initiate a conversation with Blackhawk about our premarital process, which is designed to draw engaged couples deeper into community at Blackhawk. This process includes meeting with Pastor of Marriage and Parenting Anne Kierce, participating in an online assessment by SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts), as well as being paired with a marriage mentor couple within the church. We encourage couples to allow nine months for the entire process from application to wedding, but we are also able to work with couples on a shorter timeline.
Some of our officiating pastors are bilingual. We may be able to accommodate requests for English/Spanish or English/Mandarin ceremonies.
Tenemos un pastor que habla español e inglés. A veces podemos acomodar la solicitud para oficiar una boda bilingüe.
SYMBIS Assessment – $105
The fee covers the cost of the assessment and a meeting with a trained SYMBIS facilitator.
- Eastside Auditorium, Westside Auditorium, or Fireside Room ceremony – $580
- Atrium ceremony – $780
- The fee covers a Blackhawk wedding coordinator, sound technician and facility use.
Pastor Honorarium – suggested $300
It is customary for the bride and groom to give the officiating pastor an honorarium. We recommend approximately $300 as a guideline for that gift, which can be given directly to the pastor.
Vow Renewal Ceremony
Facility rental fees and pastor honorarium for vow renewals are determined based on ceremony needs, event size, and building usage.
