Baker Memorial United Methodist Church is a popular venue for weddings, and other special events and religious ceremonies. We’d love to help you plan this special and blessed day.
We hope this time will be a rich experience as you prepare to embark on this wonderful journey together. We, the clergy and staff of Baker Memorial, want to be helpful as you prepare for marriage and plan your wedding.
To schedule a wedding at Baker Memorial, please download and submit the Wedding Reservation Request. You can always check our online calendar or call the church office to see if a date is open, but to request the date, please submit the Reservation Request. Baker Memorial Church is a popular place to be married, so the earlier you check the calendar, the better. Also, given Baker’s downtown location, there are some festival weekends where parking can be challenging. The office staff can help you schedule around those events.
It is sometimes necessary to ‘juggle’ dates and times to provide maximum service to the maximum number of persons. We schedule weddings no closer than three hours apart. This provides the time needed for the necessary preparations for the wedding (1 hour), the wedding itself (½-1 hour), and post-wedding events (balance of the 3 hours). This time frame needs to be strictly followed if there is a wedding before and/or after yours. However, if there are no other weddings for that day, you may ask the ministerial staff about arriving a little earlier or staying a little later.

We hope a Baker Memorial wedding ceremony will be the beginning of a wonderful life together.
