Weddings at Amelia Plantation Chapel

wedding-banner

As part of its mission, Amelia Plantation Chapel seeks to minister to those who desire to be married in the Christian faith. The Chapel is an interdenominational community church with an active membership and staff. Weddings are conducted as part of our ministry to our congregation and the community. While we wish to serve those who desire to be married at the Chapel, whether or not they are members, our buildings and grounds are not rented for outside use.

All weddings are the responsibility of the Associate Pastor, Don Edwards, who will officiate. Other clergy are welcome to participate in the ceremony as guests. The wedding liturgy is provided by the Pastor. Premarital counseling is required, either with the Pastor or another counselor or minister.

The Chapel Wedding Director – Jeanette Edwards (nettiebess1@aol.com) is responsible for helping the bride with all arrangements. No other wedding director or consultant is permitted to function in the Chapel. Mrs. Edwards is in charge of the disposition of the wedding party, the family and guests, the photographer and the florist. The bride is required to meet with her before the wedding to go over all details and expectations.

The Chapel Organist – Peter Deane (chapelorganist@gmail.com) is responsible for all music for the ceremony. Mr. Deane should be contacted to discuss music arrangements. He is the organist for all weddings at the Chapel and will assist with engaging instrumentalists and soloists.
