A church wedding is a unique and special ceremony for contracting marriage. In planning a church wedding you are choosing to ask our Lord's blessings on your marriage and to have it sanctified by his Word and prayer. The wedding liturgy speaks to the marriage contract in ways other
than the concerns of a civil ceremony or a social reception. The bride and groom exchange their vows as an act of worship within God’s house.

By asking Jesus to be present at your wedding you are beginning a marriage centered in Christ and his Word. Be assured he is pleased to join a couple in the fellowship of a Christian marriage. While this is an intensely personal event in a couple’s lives, it is much more than a private
celebration. This ceremony takes place in the presence of a congregation of worshipers. Those assembled participate in this event to express their support, joy, and faith through prayers, acclamations, and songs.

The Maronite Rite offers many alternative expressions to help the bride and groom personalize their celebration. Many of these choices flow from the sacramental nature of the wedding liturgy. Our Lady of Lebanon Church is committed to making your day memorable and prayerful for all. As with other sacraments, the Sacrament of Matrimony is not a luxury or an option, but a serious responsibility. To help facilitate the planning of this joyous event, you will find the following guidelines helpful.
