    How many times can we mention the Holy Trinity in one ceremony? That is the feeling I get from that. He says God’s name more times than your own.

    In my (limited) experience, most minister I know wouldn’t feel comfortable leading a civil ceremony witout reference to their religion, because their religion is what defines them.  Are you looking for a completely civil ceremony without any reference or religion, or just a toned down version of what he wrote?  If it’s the former, you may have a difficult time.  If it’s the later, he may be willing to work with you more than if you want to avoid all religious references.

    I had a civil ceremony and this would make me really uncomfortable. If you’re both religious and  cool with it- I’d let him go wild. It’s not really a civil ceremony though.

    @mudratdetector: I believe it is beautiful and the traditional catholic marriage vows and rituals.   

    @MsBrooklynA:  No offense, but marriage is a sacred sacrament between three 

    Groom, Bride and God an in the Catholic demonition it is not rare to hear the Words GOd and holy trinity more often than the name of the party that is to be wed.  These are the words for the soon to be married couple 


    I love it…like in the movies and my novelas(soap operas) now we only need someone to impede the weddingLaughing

    @beatriz: Well please refrain from pushing your beliefs upon me. I personally think my marriage is between me and my husband. This soon to be married couple said they would like a civil ceremony. Not a cathiolic mass. There is a difference.

    It is actually fairly common to have a religious ceremony outside of a church.  While this is not normally permitted in a Catholic ceremony, it is allowed in most Protestant denominations.  And for Jews, an outdoor ceremony is actually quite traditional.  So if you are happy with the ceremony, but just concerned at the reaction of your guests to a religious ceremony in a country club, I don’t think you need to worry.

    @beatriz: But obviously it’s not a Catholic ceremony, so none of that matters at all.



    @mudratdetector: I do think I would find it odd as a guest to be going through prayers such as the Our Father in a non-church setting.
