All floral arrangements, as well as any other additional decorations, must be cleared through the wedding liaison at least two (2) weeks prior to the ceremony. The florist and any other decorators should arrange a time with the wedding liaison to decorate the sanctuary. Decorations should be in keeping with the nature of the service and preserve the atmosphere of worship. No decorations or floral arrangements may cover the Baptismal Font, Communion Table, or the Pulpit, and live flowers should not be placed on the piano or organ.
Floral arrangements are permitted in the chancel area. Protective measures must be taken with the use of live plants/flowers to assure the furnishings are not damaged. The only flowers allowed on the communion table are a small arrangement around the unity candle (if placed there). Several floral stands are available to be used in the chancel area, as are two (2) seven-branch candelabra with candles. NSPC also has artificial floral arrangements available for use on the candelabra or pews if needed.
No nails, screws, thumbtacks, staples, or sticky tape may be used in any part of the church, nor can any carpentry work or other temporary structure(s) be erected. All surfaces must be protected from wax, water, scarring, marks, or other damage. Any damage to the building or furnishings of NSPC will be the responsibility of those who engaged the church facility.
