I had a meeting 2 months before the wedding and decided my brother who is in a wheelchair would take me down the aisle and I wqnted to honor our grandparents name by saying it outloud and lighting memorial candles. On rehersal the Pastor William Chingoly printed vows for me to read without consulting with me. Additionally when we reminded him that we wanted to have my brother take me he said well now I have to change the entire ceremony because there is not going to be enough time and it is going to take too long. Then he said when we reminded him to add our grandparent ohh another change. Now I have to redo everything all over. If he is an ecperienced 20 yr pastor that would only be a sentence with two names. We paid $1200 for 1 hour granted the santuary is phenomenol but that pastor was just not worth the $1200. At the end my hubby spoke firmly with him and when I walked down that aisle it was perfect. Thank God!

This church was exactly what I was looking for! It has a cozy atmosphere which was perfect for my relatively small number of guests (~55 guests). Milan Kralik-Brown was my reverend and he was amazing. He is so sweet and was always available for any questions or concerns I had. Meeting with him was fun, and he was really great at the wedding rehearsal as well. I am so very happy that Milan was able to perform our wedding ceremony. He has been able to marry several of my family members and made us feel extra special. If you choose Coral Gables Congregational, be sure to request Milan! The ceremony fee is expensive, but Milan was so personable that it was worth it. We loved the special kiss!

Pastor Milan conducted an unforgetable ceremony. Guests commented that he mad it so special that they will never forget it. Especially the kissing contest! Also, Chely (coordinator) is an amazing person to work with.

There are many beautiful churches in South Florida and we chose CGCC for many reasons. We planned our wedding from out of state, so it wasn't going to be possible to do the pre marital counseling that many churches require. We also didn't belong to a church of our own and many churches require a letter to be married. It was important for us to be married in a church and we just happened to find this perfectly beautiful non denominational church to meet our requirements. Most of our correspondence was done by fax and mail, with the exception of meeting once in person with the pastor.

The prices vary depending on the time and day of the ceremony. All music (which is live on the organ) and the rehearsal is included in the package. The church is beautiful as is, no decorations needed.

Rev. Dr. Jerry Schumm was our wedding pastor and he has performed over 2,000 weddings! We were really happy with the way he did everything, he made us feel very comfortable. Just before the ceremony started, he came in the bridal room and sprayed breath spray into our mouths. It made me laugh and it took my mind off being nervous.

The overall experience and ceremony was picture perfect.

Our ceremony was at the Coral Gables Congregational Church. Beautiful church, which I decided not to decorate. I wanted the church to look natural and the pictures were beautiful. Pastor Guillermo Marquez-Sterling was so nice and so calm that he took my nerves away. He made us laugh when a laugh was needed and to some guests made them cry. The ceremony was beautiful, the message, in general the service was beyond what I expected. Thank you Pastor Guillermo. Highly recommend.

church is amazing, a bit pricey. Rev. Stirling is very directive and informative with what to do and what not to do. They let my photographer and video be and do whatever they needed!
