- Wedding: May 2018
We here tons of bad stories about weddings, so I thought I’d share a nice story I read about. A pastor in Akron has realized that a lot of couples at his church aren’t getting marred because of the huge cost associated with weddings. Therefore, he got together with his parish over four long weekends a year, one each quarter, they are offering free weddings. Everything from the church, the flowers, the musicians, sound man, pastor, the photography– people are donating their services to make it free, and brides will have access to the church for two hours.
Of course they don’t cover the reception, but I am sure that this is a huge blessing to many brides and grooms out there!
I think this is a wonderful thing for a church to offer. You do have to take two pre-marital counseling classes (also free), but I think it’s great!
