For the health and safety of everyone we are abiding by
Public Health and CDC guidelines regarding the pandemic.
Masks and social distancing required while inside the building.
We know that trying to plan and celebrate your wedding in the midst of a pandemic is challenging. We are committed to helping make your wedding day the special celebration you deserve. For the wellbeing of the whole community, we are taking a careful and cautious approach. We are abiding by public health protocols and our COVID Response Team's
guidelines regarding the pandemic.
As of right now here are the requirements: (subject to change depending on public health guidelines)
-Masks would be required by everyone. The exception would be for the bride, groom and officiant as long as they are triple vaccinated and have a negative COVID test 24-48 hours before the wedding. "The State of Illinois is still under a statewide mask mandate, which means while in any indoor public space (unless you are eating, drinking, or seated at a table) anyone over the age of two is to be wearing a mask. Properly worn masks cover a person's nose and mouth."
-We encourage social distancing, so our COVID response team recommends no more than 100 guests to allow for that. We mark the pews to assist in this process.
-For your guests' safety, our hospitality volunteers will ask your guests to sign into your guestbook or check them off a list you provide. We take this action so you know who to contact in case of COVID exposure at your wedding.
-Attendance will be whatever the state public health limits are at the time of your wedding. We cannot guarantee or predict what tier or phase we will be in on the day of your wedding. Attendance numbers include all of the wedding party, parents, clergy, guests, musicians, staff, etc.
-Instrumental music is safest. Wind instruments would need to be screened. If you wish to include a vocalist, but we would consider a singer who is triple vaccinated and has a negative COVID test within 48 hours before the ceremony
