Weddings & Events

Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church of Pasadena recognizes the truth in all religions. Unitarian Universalists beliefs honor the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We welcome all who seek to make a deeper commitment, regardless of religion, beliefs, or gender. You will enjoy the freedom to incorporate your own religious traditions in your wedding ceremony. We look forward to helping you plan your special day.

We have three beautiful areas for your ceremony and reception: our formal Sanctuary, the craftsman-inspired Ross Chapel, and Garden.

The Garden

The Neighborhood Church Garden is one of the finest outdoor settings for weddings in the Los Angeles area. The backdrop of mature redwoods is sure to make your event a day to remember. The broad expanse of lawn accommodates up to 250 guests for a ceremony.
