Marriage

Practicing Catholics in good standing may request a wedding at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Boone or Church of the Epiphany in Blowing Rock. Requests should be made as early as possible to ensure securing your preferred date.   You may use your own Priest at either location, subject to approval by our Pastor.  For more information on requirements for holding a wedding at St. Elizabeth or Church of the Epiphany, please contact our Parish Office at 828-264-8338 at least six (6) months prior to your wedding date.

St. Elizabeth Church in Boone can normally seat up to 400-440 people, depending on seating arrangements.   Church of the Epiphany in Blowing Rock can normally seat 100-125 and is recommended for smaller weddings.   The Parish Hall at St. Elizabeth's is available for receptions.   Receptions at Church of the Epiphany must be held outside and a rented tent is recommended.  Weddings, rehearsals, and receptions at either facility must be scheduled at times which do not interfere with Masses or other scheduled events.  

To be married in the Charlotte Diocese, you must make arrangements to receive Marriage Preparation here or have it approved if received elsewhere.  This must be done six months prior to the wedding date.

Couples who come to receive the Sacrament of Marriage should be attending weekly Mass and living our Catholic faith with integrity.
