Wedding policies

Photographs To insure the dignity of the wedding ceremony in the Chapel, NO FLASH PICTURES MAY BE TAKEN DURING THE SERVICE. Flash exposures may be taken both before and after the service, while the bride walks down the aisle and during the lighting of the unity candle. Couples should inform their photographer and family members of this policy. Video cameras are welcome in the Chapel when they are placed in a stationary, inconspicuous position. Smoking: Pilgrim Chapel is a NON SMOKING facility. Alcohol: Alcoholic beverages may be served, but not sold. Church Access The Chapel can be available on the Wedding Day up to two hours before the scheduled service. Decoration Use of DRIPLESS candles only is permitted. No nails or staples may be used. Only masking tape is permitted, as all other tapes tend to strip paint from the walls. Decorations are to be removed after the wedding and on the same day as the ceremony. Parking on Mt. Adams Because Mt. Adams is a quaint, charming and highly desirable location it has become popular for both living and for restaurants, bars, churches and other destinations. Parking for EVERY entity on the Mount is at a Premium. We are pleased at the Chapel that arrangements have been made for adequate nearby parking for those who attend events at Pilgrim Chapel. Bus parking is available nearby. Complete information is provided when a date is reserved for a wedding at Pilgrim Chapel. Officiants It is the policy of Pilgrim Chapel that the officiant is one of the Ministers of Pilgrim Chapel. Should outside clergy be desired to participate in the service, wedding couples may request our Pastor to issue an invitation to outside clergy. Only Mt. Adams Pilgrim Chapel Clergy will issue such invitations. Ordinarily, only regularly ordained ministers in good standing in communions affiliated with the denominations represented in the Cincinnati Council of Christian Communions or World Council of Churches may give leadership in Pilgrim Chapel.  

Pilgrim Chapel Aspires to be a church of the "open mind, the open heart and the open hand."
