But the greatest of these is Love

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

-1 Corinthians 13:13


Weddings are always so fun to plan, each bringing a unique view into the couples relationship and who they are. No matter how many weddings we are blessed to be a part of, we are always blown away at the different ways couples incorporate their faith into their ceremony. These moments make for such special and intimate moments between the couple, and something they will always remember... we may also be in the back with tears in our eyes.


So what are some ways you can incorporate your faith into your wedding day? We have several ideas!


A time of Prayer

Meredith and Austin were such a special couple and wanted to bring so much of their walk with the Lord into their wedding day together. Both Austin and Meredith are members of the worship team at their church and they wanted the praise team to play as guests entered into the ceremony, as well as when they exited. The couple had their church pastor marry them and included a time of prayer with their parents during the ceremony. These sweet touches made their ceremony feel so tailored to Meredith and Austin.




A time of prayer does not always have to be included during the ceremony but can be an intimate moment with your bridal party before walking down the aisle. Our very own Alyson had a time of prayer with her bridesmaids, Mother of the bride and Mother of the groom just before walking to meet Will at the end of the aisle. This is the perfect time to pray those jitters away and feel a renewed sense of Peace.





Communion

Stepping away during your ceremony to take communion is not an uncommon tradition, and is also a time to celebrate God at the center of your marriage. Two of our couples included communion during their ceremony and we loved the symbolism.



"Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

-Mark 10:9




Incorporating Scripture

Incorporating scripture on the day of your wedding can come in many different forms, from a bible verse down the aisle to guests highlighting a bible, we love it all! Several of our brides have used 1 Corinthians 13 on signage down the aisle. Guests can read the verse as they are being seated, and it makes for beautiful decor.


"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails."

-1 Corinthians 13:4-8




We love a unity candle, but how about braiding a cord of three strands during your ceremony while Ecclesiastes 4 is read aloud?! This can later be used as decor in your home and is a reminder of the three figures in the marriage, You, your spouse, and God!


Another nod to scripture is to have a Bible as a guest book! Your guests can highlight their favorite verse for you and sign their name. Pass this down as a family bible, or use this as your daily bible...you will never stop being reminded of your special day!



"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

-Ecclesiastes 4:9-12



A time of Worship

Singing during your ceremony is not a must, but is always a great idea! We love when couples include praise and worship during their ceremony. Print the song in your bulletin, and the congregation can join in. These are the moments that will stand out to you when looking back and reflecting on your ceremony.




Washing of the Feet

Washing your new spouses feet is ultimate symbolism and shows the same example that Jesus showed his disciples before he was crucified. Washing of the feet is showing that you will serve and selflessly love, and no better time to start than on day one! This can take a little bit more time during your ceremony, so be sure to allow for this on your timeline. The pictures speak for themselves and we are here for it.




However you choose to honor your faith on the day of your wedding, it is going to be perfect! Your ceremony time is meant to be a time of unity and your commitment to each other as well as God! We can't wait to see how you choose to include your faith on your wedding day!
