Weddings at Christ Church

We are delighted that you are considering being married at Christ Episcopal Church, located in the City of Poughkeepsie, just a few blocks from the Hudson riverfront and the lively amenities along its banks. Our beautiful, sacred space has been the setting for splendid weddings for almost 150 years, and our expansive green space provides the kind of park-like environment that makes everyone feel welcome.  The colors of the seasons add to the beauty of the space. We  hope you find our church a compelling place to celebrate one of the most joyous and profound days of your life.

Weddings at Christ Episcopal are open to

  • heterosexual couples and same-sex couples

  • members of the parish and non-members

  • couples seeking a Christian blessing of marriage in the Episcopal tradition

  • couples of differing religious and secular traditions

Christ Church is now listed on The Knot!


We offer religious weddings in the tradition of the Episcopal Church with a priest to guide you through the process of preparation.  You will receive pre-marital counseling, ceremony planning, and spiritual guidance throughout planning and ceremony itself.

Our sanctuary is also available for use as a space rental, providing a beautiful backdrop in which to celebrate your wedding with the officiant of your choice surrounded by family and friends.
