Wedding Information

We really love weddings at Emmanuel! If you're looking for a wedding venue, please read on to learn more...

In the Episcopal Church, we believe that the sacraments are available to all of God's people. So we are honored to celebrate same-sex weddings as well as officiate at second marriages. You don't have to be a member of the church, although we do ask that one member of the couple be a baptized Christian of some sort.

This video below will give you a look at our gorgeous sanctuary, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, while you hear more information and also get to listen to our grand Casavant pipe organ. It features actual video footage from a number of weddings conducted in 2021 so you can get a sense of what an Emmanuel wedding might be like for you.



We were also thrilled to be featured recently in Chicago Style Weddings, which you can find here.

Weddings booked at Emmanuel include the following as part of one package:    

  • A priest, who will conduct pre-marital counseling and officiate at the service    
  • A professional organist to play our pipe organ
  • One or more wedding coordinators, depending on the details of the wedding
  • Dressing rooms for each member of the couple 
  • Time for photographs before and after the service
  • Printed bulletins for your guests, with space for a personal note from the couple or a photograph
  • A rehearsal, typically held the evening before

If you'd like to ask a question, schedule an appointment for a tour, check on a particular date, or get current pricing information, please email the church office at or give us a call at (708) 352-1275. Congratulations!
