    @Knubbsy-Wubbsy: Maybe have the Pastor read it during the sermon? That’s what would happen in a Catholic wedding at least. Or include it in the program?

    A friend of mine along with a scripture reading had a really nice poem read as well by two of the girls in her house party.  I think it worked really well.  I even heard people talking about the poem after the ceremony…they loved it.

    I wouldn’t see why it would be an issue. I am a big fan of Lewis too.

    Non-Biblical people are quoted quite often in my church. As long as you clearly indicate that you’re not quoting Scripture I think it’s perfectly fine. I love CSLewis and he has some beautiful imagery and analogies related to marriage.

    Some of the things he says about his wife are amazing and hilarious. I just read this last night and wrote it down. Maybe not appropriate to a formal ceremony but it shows how awesome he is 😀

    “What was [Joy] to me? She was my daughter and my mother, my pupil and my teacher, my subject and my sovereign; and always, holding all these in solution, my trusty comrade, friend, shipmate, fellow-soldier. My mistress; but at the same time all that any man friend (and I have good ones) has ever been to me. Perhaps more. If we had never fallen in love we should have none the less been always together, and created a scandal.”
