Outdoor wedding on the UUCB Terrace

Whether you are planning a large formal event or a small intimate gathering, UUCB provides a welcoming, elegant environment for your wedding or commitment ceremony. The Sanctuary is a sacred space for all religious faiths. Our organ and two grand pianos are available for musical accompaniment for your ceremony.

Flower girls rehearse entering the Sanctuary from the Atrium

Located just outside the Sanctuary, the tree-shaded Atrium is suitable for dancing and/or a light meal. It opens out onto the Terrace, offering a spectacular view of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. If desired, the Social Hall and professional kitchen can provide all that is required for a formal catered sit-down dinner accompanying your wedding. If you prefer a smaller celebration, the Fireside Room provides a warm, intimate environment and has a baby grand piano.

Bride and groom on the Terrace at sunset

Generally, one of our church’s ministers meets with you as a couple at least twice before the wedding to get to know you better, discuss our faith and values, and talk with you about the spiritual issues and life challenges that often present themselves during the planning of a wedding.

Two grooms walk down the aisle

As a progressive, pluralistic, welcoming congregation, it is important to us that anyone leading a service or ceremony in our church do so in a way that affirms the full equality and preciousness of people of all races, genders, gender expressions, sexual orientations, abilities, and cultures. So, if you wish to have a minister from another church or religious community officiate your wedding, the arrangement must be approved by one of our ministers. In most cases, we gladly welcome officiants from other traditions who are licensed to officiate in California.

Please see the illustrative “wedding package” below for average pricing. All spaces are available in any combination along with the organ, grand pianos, and audio-visual support. Our Rental Manager, Lissa Roos Parker, will be pleased to help you put together a personalized package of suitable spaces, instrumental and audio-visual equipment.
