Weddings at St. Luke


St. Luke is happy to assist you in your wedding and marriage preparations. We wish to help make this a day of joy and celebration for you and the people sharing the day with you. We believe that a solid foundation for a Christian marriage is based on a wedding service focused on two individuals coming together in Christ. May God richly bless you as you plan for this exciting and meaningful event.

If you wish to have St. Luke involved in your wedding plans, the first step is to contact Pastor Keith Long (651-459-1222 ext. 1) or (klong@stlukecg.com). When the dates and times have been agreed upon, a $100 check deposit to St. Luke (for on-site ceremonies only) is required. When we receive your deposit, your wedding date will be scheduled.  Please note that this amount will be deducted from your total payment.

At St. Luke we believe that your wedding day is special and we will not schedule other weddings on your date.  Weddings are not generally scheduled on Sundays or holiday weekends.
