Planning a Wedding?
Southern California and the greater Los Angeles area are an incredibly exciting and fascinating place to live and visit. The Danish Lutheran Church can provide a unique setting for a wedding in California. Our church provides an intimate setting for any wedding--grand or small.
The pastor would be like to meet you before the wedding, and you should contact the pastor to arrange a date for the wedding and a pastoral conversation. We have a very skilled wedding coordinator and organist on hand for your convenience.
The pastor can also perform weddings at other churches or venues: the beach, the mountains, a hotel or private gardens. There are fees for wedding ceremonies onsite and off. Please contact the pastor for information.
You can rent the congregation hall, kitchen and patio as well as host a reception after the ceremony, which gives you the opportunity to celebrate the church service and the reception at the same beautiful venue.
