    1- I think that you should’ve gone into more detail about why you picked their church, why the church he suggested is not okay, and why you picked the new church. 

    2- as far as what the church should pay, I’d say they should pay the difference between what you were paying them and what you’re paying the new church. So if their fee was $300 and this church’s fee is $850, they should pay $550 (plus of course reimbursing you if you had paid a deposit or anything with them). 

    3- it’s a church… if they don’t want to pay it I don’t see you being able to force them to do it. It’s kind of hard to sue a church ya know? so maybe try a bit nicer tone with them.

    I agree with you that you should be compensated for having to book another church in such a late notice. Questions:

    Did you go and look at the church the pastor recommended?

    Did pastor offer solution for not having a pastor at the other church?

    If you do take the recommended church, is it free? Meaning all deposits back from pervious church are returned and any/all additional fee’s will be waived?

    You also did not add why you didn’t like pastor’s choice in the email besides saying that it should be the bride and grooms choice (I agree) but you still have to make your argument. I will also like to add that you and the pastor need to come to some type of agreement before you state, I found a church and I would like you to pay half. First see if the pastor will even agree to pay any money for any new church and waive fees. I wish you the best of luck.
