Be surrounded by beauty and peace in a Christian setting as you create treasured memories to last forever.
BEAUTIFUL—The floor to ceiling glass windows behind the altar and chancel offer guests a view of the sanctuary garden and landscaped hillside, creating an extraordinary backdrop for your wedding.
MEANINGFUL—The rich heritage of Christian fellowship and dedication reaching back to 1869 in San Diego can be felt in the personalized service of worship that accompanies the ceremony.
SPACIOUS—The cross-shaped sanctuary is large enough to accommodate weddings with 1000 guests, yet can be designed to create a very intimate setting.
INTIMATE—Our new Trotter Chapel seats up to 100 guests for a beautifully intimate occasion.
MAGNIFICENT—The 42-foot high stained glass window at the front of the sanctuary offers a dramatic view to guests as they depart.
MAGICAL—Eighteen tracery windows line the sides of the 65-foot high sanctuary and provide a visual richness as the ever-changing natural light passes through.
INSPIRATIONAL—The pure majesty of the church will prove an inspiration for your wedding ceremony as a celebration of a covenant based on your love.
