Weddings

Congratulations on your engagement, and we welcome you to St. Andrew’s-by-the-Sea.

Our beautiful, historic stone chapel is situated in one of the Seacoast’s most beautiful settings. With the warmth of its wooden trusses and colorfully stained glass windows, we welcome you to enjoy this idyllic setting by the sea for your very special occasion. St. Andrew’s is wonderfully located in one of the most beautiful stretches of the seacoast.

Ceremonies are conducted from mid-May to mid-October. The chapel is open to all couples, and we are pleased to share in the joyous event of your wedding.

The chapel can accommodate up to 175 people. Parking is available on the street and in an open parking lot across from the chapel.

Being married at St. Andrew’s-by-the-Sea makes for a very special wedding day. We also want you to be aware of some important considerations:

  • The Chapel does not currently offer a space for receptions (but we are happy to offer suggestions for nearby locations)
  • It is best to plan ahead to secure your date for the day of your wedding.

The principal ordained minister in the ceremony can be an Episcopal priest or clergy of another Christian denomination. Clergy of other denominations or faiths are also welcome to assist an Episcopal priest at your wedding. Please see our Wedding Guidelines for more information.

We invite you to speak with Sandra Gavutis, our wedding coordinator for more information, or to schedule your date.

You may contact her at weddings@standrews-by-the-sea.org
