Weddings & Holy Unions

Weddings & Holy Unions


Getting Married? Why not get married at the church that started it all?

Founders Metropolitan Community Church Los Angeles was the first church in the nation to perform same-sex holy unions more than forty years ago.

Today we perform same-sex and opposite-sex religious weddings.

Founders MCCLA is proud to officiate at such services!

We will be glad to talk with you about how to make your opposite-sex religious wedding legal in the state of California.
