Learn about hosting a wedding at SBPC

We are pleased that you are considering having your wedding at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church. Included is some information that should help make your planning process easier. 


A wedding may be booked for any time of the day since we only book one wedding a day. Morning weddings tend to be booked around 11 am for a lunch reception. Afternoon weddings tend to be booked around 4 pm for an evening reception. We book weddings on most days of the week, except for Sundays. We may not be able to book weddings on certain weekends due to holidays or church events. Please note that we do not book weddings in November or December.

The following dates are unavailable annually:

  •  2 Saturdays before Palm Sunday thru the Saturday after Easter
  •  Memorial Day Weekend
  •  Weekend before and after Pentecost
  •  4th of July Weekend
  •  Months of November and December


The cost for a wedding at SBPC is $700 for Members & Friends of the church; $1100 for Non-Members. This includes use of the facilities for a wedding rehearsal and the ceremony, the SBPC wedding coordinator, sound technician, an organist /pianist, custodial services, and use of the bridal & Grooms rooms. There is no fee charged to the bride and groom by the PASTOR, however most often a gift/honorarium is given at the discretion of the couple.


Debin Hall Auditorium (fellowship hall) is now available for wedding receptions. The cost of a reception starts at $1000. This includes use of the room, tables. chairs, setup/breakdown & custodial services, and a reception coordinator (the SBPC liaison for planning a reception).

Couples Counseling – Couples being married by a pastor on the SBPC staff are required to participate in pre-marital counseling prior to getting married. Each pastor will personally schedule his or her sessions with a couple and select the materials to be used.
