Marriage is a gift of God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it and for the well-being of the whole human family. God created us all and blessed humankind with the gifts of companionship and the capacity to love. Jesus affirmed the covenant of marriage and revealed God's own self-giving love on the cross. The Holy Spirit helps those who are united in marriage to be living signs of God's grace, love, and faithfulness. Marriage is also a human estate, with vows publicly witnessed. The church in worship surrounds these promises with the gathering of God's people, the witness of the word of God, and prayers of blessing and intercession. (ELW)

What does a traditional Lutheran wedding look like?
Weddings come in many shapes and sizes depending on tadition and faith background. As Christian pastors, we typically follow the Lutheran liturgy and emphasize the relationship between the couple and their relationship with God. While we can be flexible with the inclusion of traditions and different ceremonies (i,e. a unity ceremony within the liturgy) to fit the couple and their family, our focus as Christian pastors is always on God's love, forgiveness, and grace within the union of two people. The Lutheran liturgy reflects that emphasis and is therefore our starting point when planning your wedding ceremony.
