Wedding Customary

The marriage of two people in the Episcopal church is not only a time of joy and blessing, but also marks a  solemn and public covenant between spouses in the presence of God.  


In the Episcopal Church it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of the Episcopal Church. 


A priest or a bishop normally presides at the Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage, because such ministers alone have the function of pronouncing the nuptial blessing, and of celebrating the Holy Eucharist.
