Weddings at Riverside
Hold Your Wedding – Big or Small – at Riverside!
The Riverside Church is an open and affirming interdenominational Christian church with extensive experience uniting interfaith, heterosexual, and same-sex couples.
Enjoy the traditional elegance of our beautiful architecture, stunning views, and unparalleled ambiance. Exchange vows standing where presidents, dignitaries, and some of the most historic figures of our time have stood. Afterwards, finish your perfect day in one of our exquisite event halls. Big or small, we offer a variety of wedding and reception spaces to fit the size of your wedding and your budget!
The splendor of our main worship sanctuary, designed in the tradition of Chartres Cathedral in France, with its beautiful stained glass windows and ornate architecture serves as the perfect backdrop for medium to large weddings.
For weddings of 100 or fewer guests, many couples choose the more intimate Christ Chapel for their ceremony. Christ Chapel is patterned after the eleventh century Romanesque nave of the fortress church of St. Nazaire at Carcassonne.
For an extremely intimate and private small wedding, the Meditation Chapel may be ideal for your occasion.
