The first step in planning a wedding is to call the priest to set up a meeting. The priest will discuss with you the planning of your wedding, pre-marital counseling, and other necessary details.
MARRIAGE IN THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH
The meaning of Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between two people in the presence of God. The essential nature of holy matrimony is that it is entered into freely and mutually and celebrated in the context of the community of faith.
The wedding ceremony is a public proclamation of the couple’s commitment, and the community responds with its support, blessing, accountability, and proclamation of God’s presence.
