I don’t see why not.  Most weddings I’ve been to, the only “religious” part was that it took place in a church.

That’s what we did.  I’m the agnostic, DH is the christian.  He chose a bible verse he wanted, I chose a (non-religious) reading I wanted.  We requested that the minister not put in multiple prayers, he only included one and when that part in the ceremony came up, I just refrained from joining in.  We had both the religious side of the family and the non-religious side tell us that it was a great ceremony.

I just would like to say one thing. Please, because I have seen this at soo many weddings… do not let him vow anything against his religious beliefs. It really irks me when I see a bride/groom vow “before God” or “to raise our children in the church” etc. when everyone watching knows full and well that that person is not a believer and will admit as much. It makes you wonder if they are sincere about the rest of the vows.

That being said, I think that it is wonderful that you respect and love him for who he is. An interfaith ceremony is totally doable, just as long as it is symbolic (for example, drinking from one cup or having a rope tied around both of you) as opposed to straight-up lying under oath.. lol.
