My Fiance was raised Baptist, and I’m thoroughly non-denominational. Currently we’re attending a Christian and Missionary Alliance Church.

  • Wedding: July 2020 - Outdoor ceremony, banquet hall reception

Mr. PP and I are both non-denominational, and we’re having an amazing pastor from my family’s church marry us. I would like the ceremony to be as much about praising God as it is about us getting married, and I know that Pastor Dave will be able to do that 100%.

We’re having a call to worship at the beginning of the ceremony, before I walk down the aisle with a couple of my favorite worship songs- Everything Glorious and In Christ Alone. I think that will set the tone for the ceremony and help everyone to get into a worshipful mood. 🙂

I love hearing all of your stories!

  • Wedding: July 2009 - Stage 6 at Steiner Studios

Oh, so glad I found this thread!  Mr. L and I are both Christians and go to ECC churches.  Like Caramel, our wedding may be the first time some of our guests have ever been in a church…or the first time in a very long time.  I think many of them have misconceptions about religion and church, and I’m hoping that our wedding will give them a glimpse into what our faith (and marriage) is really about. 

I’m excited that my pastor will be officiating…he has such a relate-able and real preaching style and I think it’ll be great for our guests to see a young and "hip" pastor marrying us.

Our faith in the Lord and our commitment to serving the Lord is what brought my fiance and I together. We attended the same youth group and church for the last 13 years and knew, before we even started dating, that we wanted to get married. We didn’t want to date, and we also didn’t want a long courtship! However, after speaking with my parents, we decided to wait THREE YEARS before getting married, so I could graduate from architecture school and be a "good" wife, meaning I would not spend my nights at school building models!

We are finally only 8 months away now, and I must say the last 2.5 years have been trying, refining, and challenging, but they have also been quite wonderful!

Our only church, and our only Pastor, will be officiating, as he and his wife have mentored and discipled us for many years. We will not be having any "service" or anything of the sort: this is a celebration! Church will be on Sunday! But serving, acknowledging and glorifying God is a part of our every day lives, and is evident in the character we have developed and the love we are able to share with everyone we encounter.

We look forward to the fellowship, and the mingling of our church families, friends, and family members, and of course making our life-long commitment to help, refine and uplift one another!! This is an exciting time for our church family as well, and as we attend a very small church, we have quite a bit of accountability and a lot of loving people that want nothing more than for us to have a wonderful marriage.

We are so very blessed! I am continually in awe of God’s love and provision for me. Trust me, this union is ALL His doing!!!

(;

 

Thanks to everyone who shared; it is so nice to see a group of believers coming together in the WeddingBee community!

We attend El Shaddai Ministries in California, and I describe myself as a Jesus-following Bible-believer. It’s that simple. It needs to be! My fiance is a great inspiration to me in love, faithfulness, long-suffering and commitment, and we continue to challenge each other to be our very best. It gets intense, but it is the best way!

I was raised Presbyterian and my Darling Husband Catholic.  Before getting married we were confirmed in the Episcopal Church.  We had an outdoor ceremony performed by a female priest from our church.  The service was from the Book of Common Prayer.  I would have married my hubby no matter what, but it was nice that we have formed a common spiritual life that is fulfilling for us both.

I love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength and I pray that I can help as many people as possible come to know Him before He returns!

My husband I met while he was a missionary and I was going to college after I had finished a few years of mission school and missions in several countries.

Our Wedding was so awesome because we worshipped God from our hearts, we cried and all our family and friends there to hear the gospel! 

We really enjoyed ourselves and we still are serving the Lord and loving each other after 6.5 years! 

I pray everyone has found their soul mate and will fulfill their calling together.

Here’s a self-portrait I took on our 6th year Anniversary!

@desiredfocus, we’re similar. I met my fiance at our missionary school, we’re now serving the Lord. Our wedding will be held this July. His family is a non-believer and we’re planning to preach the Gospel in the ceremony. We’re still discussing with the church elders about the ceremony. Do you have any tips for me ?

we’re methodists… the funnest kind of WASP! ha ha ha. One of the things that made me melt when we started dating was when my fiance asked if he could go to church with me.

I’m Episcopalian and have been my whole life.  My fiance is Methodist.  We have been attending my church together, and are getting married there as well.  Our ceremony will also be from the Book of Common Prayer, which I love because I’ve been opening that same book to page 355 on Sundays for as long as I can remember!  I like the tradition and familiarity.

However, I’m not sure what church we’ll attend after we’re married.  FH says the organ music makes him nervous 😉

I have been ina few different churches all me life. Right now, my Fiance and I are in Apostolic and Pentecostal churches, respectively, but we dont 100% agree with what they say. We might look for a new church after we’re married.

Mrs. Caramel, it’s so cool how you wanted to preach the gospel instead of focusing on you.

We are Presbyterian and believe that marriage is the ultimate example of Christ’s love. I feel so blessed and lucky to have found a best friend who believes the same thing I do! =)

My Fiance and I are both Southern Baptists, him more so than myself.  He was raised in a tiny church and attended there is whole life. [That’s where I met him]

After about a year, and after a big falling out at the church regarding our youth pastor, he and I (after much debate) decided to move our membership elsewhere.  We still attend a Southern Baptist church, but I think he sometimes misses the church where he grew up at.  His father is now the youth pastor there and his mother teaches childrens church.

This poses a slight problem. Due to our very tight budget, we are having the reception in the fellowship hall at his parents church.  I am still not comfortable there, but I know it means alot to my Fiance since he was pretty much raised there.

Thoughts?

i’m non-denominational. i grew up in the church of god. my father is a minster as so i thin just about everyone in my family! we all work in the church and are very into music and have been singing or had an instrument in our hands almost since birth lol.

my fiance and i attend a christian church. we’ve been through thick and thin and have been together for 10 years. we met very young and had a child together. since then we’ve had some rough patches but god has healed our hearts and brought us back to him and we are getting married and doing great! without christ we wouldn’t have made it, but now, we are so blessed and are very happy! so is our daughter! mommy and daddy are getting married!

my father is doing our vows and my brothers are going to have a part in the ceremony also. all my brothers are ministers and have played a big part in mine and my fiance’s lives. i too want the gospel told at our wedding and hopefully a life or lives will be touched and hearts moved towards a life with jesus! we are also having communion.

Wow, I never realized that there was a Christian board on Weddingbee!  How awesome!

Both Fiance and I were raised in Presbyterian churches… he in CA and I in FL.  We currently worship and serve at the Baptist church that I’ve been attending since middle school.

I was raised in a Baptist church but consider myself a non-denominational Christian now. It’s funny, my Fiance and I attended the same church at the same time but didn’t actually meet IN church. I still have no idea how that happened. 🙂
