You are responsible for reading and signing this contract prior to the event.  All arrangements for use and all payments should be made through the Wedding Director. You may decorate tastefully, in consultation with the Wedding Director.   All areas used should be left as you found them. The kitchen refrigerator and microwave are available for use if the kitchen is rented.  It is expected that the kitchen will be left in the condition in which it was found.  All tableware, linens and paper products will be supplied by the bride and groom.

All food and decorations are to be removed by the responsible persons before leaving the premises.  All trash should be removed to the dumpster.
Music
Your wedding will be a Christian wedding and the music should reflect Christian values.  Since the wedding ceremony is uniquely personal and special to the bride and groom, the music should provide you an opportunity to testify of your love and devotion to one another and to the Lord.  The music is a very important part of the ceremony and needs to be carefully planned and coordinated with the ceremony.  The officiating pastor must agree to the entire service, including the music.
Photographs
Flash photography or special lighting may not be used during the portions of the service in which there is speaking.  Procession and recession photos with flash are permitted.  The bride and groom are to inform the photographer about this.  It is also recommended that you include a statement indicating this in your program/bulletin for your guests.
Video
Video recording shall be planned in consultation with the Wedding Coordinator.
Sound System
The church sound system is available for your wedding.  It will be the responsibility of the bride and groom to communicate technical needs to the Wedding Director.  A CROSSROADS sound technician must be scheduled for most weddings; arrangements for a sound technician will be made through consultation with the Wedding Coordinator.
