Reserving the Date

Usually only active members of St. Elizabeth’s in Boone or Church of the Epiphany in Blowing Rock can be married at either location. To schedule your wedding at St. Elizabeth and to arrange a meeting with the Pastor, please contact the Parish Office at 828-264-8338 or email

Wedding dates will be reserved on the church calendar after approval has been granted by St. Elizabeth’s Pastor and a non-returnable 50% deposit of the Wedding Fee has been received.  The remainder of the Wedding Fee will be due no later than four weeks prior to the wedding date, or the Church reserves the right to cancel the wedding with the forfeiture of all deposits paid to date.
