@candydots:  if you are set on a church, ie your local parish, then I’d start there.  You can then find a reception hall that is available. My wedding was interfaith, I’m catholic and DH is Jewish so we needed a catholic priest to do pre cana and who would work with a rabbi. We found the priest first and then the venue. You really go by what’s non negotiable. If you are in love with a venue but the church could be a pick from a few then go venue first. My SIL booked her photographer first bc she was in looooove with this one photographer Lol.(ps I don’t recommend photographer first as it was kind of a crap shoot to find the venue after- but at least they didn’t need a church as both are Jewish!)

For us, the church was a non-negotiable, so I contacted them first to find out available dates in general time we wanted to get married.  There were a few dates where the church wasn’t available, so those were out.  Then we started venue shopping and worked off of the dates that the church was available.

Around here, the venues are more tricky, so I booked that and went to the church next, but I noted what dates the venue was available besides mine.  If the church didn’t have that day available (they did), I would have made the decision to try another church or book one of the other available days at the venue and reschedule.
