Your wedding day is a significant and special day and a part of the sacred ministry of God’s church. The marriage ceremony is a celebration of covenant between two people and God. All weddings at East Church are performed within a service of worship and convey a sense of joy and love held in God’s care.
East Church offers a deep history in the Ottawa Hills neighborhood of Grand Rapids and the look and feel of a lovely place of worship. You will find yourselves welcomed to our historical building by our warm and friendly staff. Your wedding at East Church will be held either in Klise Memorial Chapel or our traditional sanctuary.
One wedding will be scheduled on any given day. You will have the use of our bridal suites and a smaller space, if desired. A small kitchen is located nearby for light refreshments (no alcoholic beverages, please), should you choose to bring them. Season permitting, you may also use our courtyard for photographs. This space is lovingly maintained by church volunteers and offers a beautiful space for outdoor photographs.
The wedding spaces at East Church are accessible and the building includes an elevator. The courtyard is not wheelchair accessible.
