  • Weddings at Young Harris Memorial UMC

    Have a look at our Wedding Policy.  Any questions you have about our church’s wedding policy can be answered by Patti Simpson, our wedding coordinator.  She is happy to provide suggestions for local musicians, florists, caterers and photographers as well.

    Patti will also assist in the wedding rehearsal and wedding ceremony, and can meet with the bride/groom prior to the rehearsal to discuss possible “staging possibilities” for the bridal party in our beautiful sanctuary.   If a wedding planner has been obtained, Patti is happy to work with the planner.
