Wedding Ceremonies, Holy Union ceremonies and Receptions
Weddings at Unity Church of Overland Park are personal, special and hassle free. Anyone, regardless of ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious / spiritual background, may have a service or reception in our church. We offer traditional ceremonies, family services, Holy Union ceremonies or re-statement of vows.
Let our experienced wedding staff help you make your special day peaceful and worry-free. We offer a wide range of ceremony styles from multi-cultural services to stand up services in a minister’s office. Anyone may have a wedding in our facility. Couples may write their own services or vows, use a standardized service or our ministers will help you design a service that fits your specific needs. We do not have set times for our services or rehearsals which mean you can reserve any time slot that is available on our calendar. Our guidelines are for the safety of you and your guests and to protect our facility.
We can accommodate ceremonies from up to 750 guests in our sanctuary to stand up weddings on our bridge with the two of you and your witnesses.
Photography & Florist
You may use a photographer and florist of your choice and we can offer you suggestions.
Vocalists / Musicians
There are no music restrictions. Most of the vocalists and musicians who perform on Sundays in our church are also available to sing at weddings. If you use our pianist, he will provide pre-seating music, play all the music for your ceremony including practicing with soloists beforehand and recessional music until your guests have exited.
Sanctuary - Our main sanctuary features a long middle aisle, raised platform with stairs and beautiful stone background and lighted trees. There is plenty of room for candelabras, unity candle tables, flowers and the bridal party. There are side aisles for easy guest seating. A grand piano is available and/or our sound engineer will play the music of your choice during your ceremony.
Peace Chapel - Our smaller chapel will hold 50 people for more intimate services. This beautiful chapel allows you to adjust the seating arrangement as you desire. Includes flowing material background and lighted trees.
Outdoor weddings - Outdoor standing weddings are available for parties up to 20. Our wooden bridge can hold the bride, groom and attendants while guests gather around.
Bride's Room - The large bride’s room is conveniently located near the sanctuary, chapel and outdoor exit. It has its own bathroom, temperature control and long mirror to make getting ready easy and fun.
Parking - Ample parking is available and a circular drive allows easy access to our church for the bridal party, vendors and guests. Our covered portico makes a perfect spot for “get away” pictures regardless of the weather. The beautiful lush green grounds allows for outdoor pictures without going to a second location. Our outdoor bridge is a favorite spot of photographers.
Reception & Rehearsal Dinner Facilities
Our newly painted and carpeted reception hall holds up to 175 people with a dance area and 200 people with no dance area. A smaller room can be created using wall partitions for intimate receptions or rehearsal dinners. There are two sets of restrooms on each side of the hall which helps eliminate long lines.
You may use a caterer of your choice. Alcohol may be served with some restrictions. Our roomy kitchen has a commercial refrigerator and a deep freeze to store food, drinks and ice.
