Weddings and Holy Unions at Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Lauderdale (UUCFL)
At the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Lauderdale, we want to help fill your
special day with wonderful memories. Some couples come to us from differing traditions.
Because we honor all spiritual paths, they find us a happy middle ground.
We believe that your ceremony of commitment is one of the most important milestones of your
and your spiritual partner's life. Whether it is a wedding or a holy union, our minister and
staff are ready to help you create a day you will always treasure.
From our years of experience working with many couples, we have learned that every wedding and holy union
is unique. So we offer several wedding and holy union packages to accommodate your needs, tastes, & budget.
You may choose from several marriage and holy union ceremonies, and all are beautiful. All are
nondenominational in content, relaxed and joyous in style. We are confident you, your fiancé, your
family and friends will all be touched by the ceremony. Alternatively, you may choose to work with
the minister and design your own ceremony.
All wedding and holy union ceremonies at which our minister officiates include a consultation with the minister. This is a
"getting to know you" session. Knowing your plans and interests is important in effectively
1-Hour Garden Ceremony
If you wish to gather a group of 12 or less in our Gardens or at our labyrinth,
and you have someone to perform your ceremony,
we would be pleased to offer you a serenely picturesque backdrop.
We can provide a comfortable room for the bride
to rest before the ceremony, a covered seating area where the party can gather before
taking their place in the Gardens, and use of restrooms.
Garden ceremonies take place on Monday or Tuesday for a selected hour between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
