heatherdanyel:  I’m a Christian and I have no problem with it at all. Outdoor weddings are fine, using the church hall for a reception is fine, so why not both? And it sounds like the pastor has no problem with it either. To me, the church is just a building, not a sacred place.

Of course in the end what matter is how you (and your fiance) feel about it personally.

I would find it a bit odd if your ceremony was secular.  Church services are outside sometimes, I see no issue with having a religious outdoor ceremony and having the reception inside.  Aside from weather issues of course 🙂
