We are having the same problem, with FI’s childhood church and his retired family friend we want for the minister. The new pastor said our minister can “help”…not happening! If ours can’t do it we will get married at the reception venue which is very well equipped for ceremonies and on the water so it isn’t a bad Plan B. I don’t understand this territorial church thing

@Scc6a:  I agree, I understand them not wanting tons of people off the street just using their church with their own people, but both of our cases are different–FI’s family friend was the head pastor at the church for decades!  And it’s your dad!

Hopefully everyone can work these things out.  I would prefer to have the ceremony at the church but won’t be devastated if we have to do it at our venue.  Also, there is a chance that our elderly friend/pastor won’t be up to performing the ceremony so we aren’t going to make a huge issue out of it.

Good luck, let me know how it works out!  Fingers crossed for you.
