Your Wedding at All Saints

Marriage takes place when you and your partner pledge yourselves to each other for a lifetime of faithfulness and companionship. The wedding is a public declaration of your marriage, at which an All Saints pastor presides. As a response to your Christian faith, it is fitting to mark this milestone event in your lives with a church worship service. Your marriage, like your whole life, is anchored in the faithfulness of God. In a wedding, God speaks through words and symbols to affirm the “yes” which you speak to each other.

The Ceremony

A Christian wedding is a service of worship. The church takes seriously the couple’s wishes, but also the meaning of Christian marriage in the Lutheran tradition. That means Bible readings and prayer, for example, will be part of every wedding service.

The Wedding Coordinator

The Wedding Coordinator manages many of the essential details of each wedding. Each wedding requires the involvement of the Coordinator, except in the case of a very small wedding without a rehearsal.
