Weddings at St. Andrew's
We welcome all couples to use our church for their wedding, regardless of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, or religious background, and we hope to build with you a relationship of mutual respect as we help you prepare for your wedding celebration.
St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is located a few blocks west of Camp Randall Stadium in the historic University Heights neighborhood on Madison’s near west side, just minutes from downtown Madison, the UW campus, and Lakes Mendota, Monona, and Wingra. This traditional church building was designed by architect Arthur Peabody, who designed many classic buildings on the UW campus. Its beautiful stone façade and landscaping make a great backdrop for wedding photos.
Most wedding ceremonies are held in the sanctuary. Our Taylor and Boody organ, warm wood wainscoting, and soft stained glass give the sanctuary a clean, elegant feel. This inviting space is big enough to hold up to 235 people but intimate enough to feel full with as few as 40 people, making it an ideal venue for small- to mid-sized weddings. The sanctuary is air-conditioned.
