Covenant is a beautiful place to have a wedding. We wish to offer all the benefits or our ministry to members and non-members in the community who are contemplating marriage.
At Covenant, we believe a wedding is a sacred occasion and a service of worship. As such, weddings are planned in accordance with the beliefs and worship practices of Covenant Presbyterian Church. Couples are encouraged keep this objective in mind when determining where to have and how to plan their service.
Our Sanctuary seats up to 420 people. We also have a chapel which seats 100 and is ideal for smaller weddings.

Preparing for Marriage
- After reading the document, contact the church office to confirm that both the church and a Covenant pastor are available for the planned date of your wedding. Contact the Scheduling Coordinator at (512)-454-5231.
- You may now begin wedding arrangements in a meeting with that pastor. The wedding and use of facilities are not confirmed until a pastor has met with the couple and has agreed to marry them. The couple will arrange that initial meeting by contacting that pastor or their assistant.
- Next you should review our Wedding Packet. The Wedding Packet includes all the forms and information necessary to reserve your wedding date on the church calendar. Dates are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis and are dependent upon the return of all the necessary forms and fees.
- Couples getting married at Covenant are must receive pre-marital counseling. Please schedule a time(s) to receive the counseling. Normally, the couple will schedule four sessions with the pastor officiating at the wedding. These sessions are required but may vary depending on the circumstances. Pre-marital counseling must be completed before the wedding date.
