Q: Can I have a priest/deacon friend officiate at the wedding?
A: We welcome requests for specific officiants. Please speak with the priest during your initial meeting if you would like to include someone special.
Q: Is there a Wedding Fee?
A: While there is no fee for the sacrament of Marriage, it is customary to provide a donation to the church. This helps support our parish and covers all costs for your wedding to include music (director/organist/cantor), altar server and preparatory assistance given to you by our parish wedding coordinator. We request a check payable to St. Julia Parish for $825.00 due at your wedding rehearsal. For breakdown of expenses, please consult the Wedding Information Guide
Q: What should I do about wedding flowers?
A: Your wedding flowers should be delivered to church between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM on the Saturday of the weekend of your wedding; even if the wedding is on a Sunday. The flowers are considered a gift to the parish for the weekend Masses in the church. If you have several floral arrangements and want to take some of the flowers, please confer with the wedding coordinator.
Q: Are there restrictions for decorations, etc. to be used in the church?
A: There can be NO rose petals, confetti, rice, bubbles, etc., used inside the church or on the church grounds. In accordance to airport regulations, NO balloons may be released into the air.
Q: Can we take photos during the ceremony?
A: You are welcome to have photographs taken during the ceremony itself, as long as the photographer/videographer are as subtle and unobtrusive as possible. If they have not worked at St. Julia parish before, they should consult with the Wedding Coordinator or officiating clergyman before the wedding begins. You are also very welcome to make use of the Grotto (behind St. Julia Church in Weston) for your wedding photographs.
