A Beautiful Place for a Meaningful Wedding

Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral welcomes opposite-sex and same-sex couples seeking a Christian wedding or blessing. This covenant of commitment between two people and God is a sacramental rite of the Episcopal Church and is an occasion that celebrates two people with all in attendance joyously participating in prayers, hymns and thanksgiving to God.

Saint Mark’s offers this rite and its sacred space to Cathedral members, their children, those who call Saint Mark’s their spiritual home and members of the Episcopal Church of Minnesota.

The Episcopal Church requires that at least one of the couple be a baptized Christian and that two witnesses attest to the marriage or blessing ceremony. Premarital counseling is also required by the canons of the church, and in Hennepin County it entitles you to a discounted rate for a marriage license. In addition to clergy approval, Saint Mark’s requires the ceremony date be scheduled at least six months in advance.
