Your wedding day is a very special occasion indeed.  It is a time of great rejoicing as well as of solemn commitment. In the bible, we read that Jesus himself was once a wedding guest as he gave to us a sign of new beginnings.

By getting married in church, a relationship is blessed by God as he enables husband and wife to love and support one another, through the good times and the bad.
