You can get married in the Church of the Presidents!

United First Parish Church welcomes weddings of all kinds.  We are a non-judgmental and accepting church, with beautiful 19th century Greek Revival architecture, featuring our stunning and unique domed ceiling.  We are known as the "Church of the Presidents" because we are the only church in existence where two American Presidents, John Adams and John Quincy Adams, are interred in their final resting place in the crypt beneath the church.  The History of UFPC makes us a unique location to hold your wedding celebration, and we have been a requested wedding location for many years.


Why choose UFPC for your wedding?

 
  • Unrivaled Greek Revival architecture in our sanctuary
  • Ease of access for guests via public transportation and local highways.

  • Flexibility - We are willing to help you hold the ceremony that will make your marriage special to you.
  • Affordability - We will fit into almost any budget
  • Historical Significance - You can get married in the church that had two of our earliest American Presidents as active members, and sit in the pew where they sat.
