Congratulations on your engagement.

We are pleased that you are considering our church for your wedding. We are centrally located in the charming Hyde Park area of Austin. Situated on a corner lot, our church is nestled under a canopy of 150 year old oak trees. Like the area that surrounds us, we are proud of our historic buildings. In celebration of our 100th birthday, our buildings and grounds were renovated in 2010 and provide a lovely setting for weddings.

Linda Bourianoff
Our pastor, Linda Bourianoff, has an incredible way with words combined with an eloquent and warm delivery which undeniably shows her care for each couple she marries. Pastor Bourianoff provides counseling sessions as part of her service as it is essential to her that each couple begins their new life together in the best possible way heading down the road to success.

It is not necessary to be a member of the congregation in order to select Hyde Park Presbyterian for your wedding site and outside pastors are welcome with advanced approval.

Karen Laffere
Karen Laffere is the wedding representative and, while often multitasking, she always makes herself available whether by phone, email or in person to answer any questions, show the facilities or give any assistance she can provide. Mrs. Laffere is not only the initial contact but handles any request(s) you may have and ensures they are taken care of both efficiently and to your satisfaction. Her goal is to make sure that your day goes exactly how you hope it will.

Wedding Agreement

Couples who choose to be married in a service of Christian worship are taking a step beyond a civil ceremony and are inviting God to be a part of their relationship.  They seek to bring their marriage into accord with the will of God and allow their relationship with Christ to form a pattern for the covenant of marriage. (Ephesians 5:21)
