A Transparent Wedding: The Church

August 24, 2010

It’s no secret that I’m not Catholic (at least now it isn’t!), but I did have a Catholic wedding (minus communion).  My husband considers himself a Catholic and he fits in with the greater majority of my family and their religious preferences.

When Mr. Windows informed me that his main concern for our wedding was that we be married by a priest, I conceded so long as we could get married in the cathedral.  I mean, a girl has a right to a pretty church, right?! 

Also, it’s important to note that on one side of my family we have about 100 people not including children…we have lots of family, my friends!

So, the biggest church I could find was the one I decided I needed to get married in!

Fun fact: there was a la quinceanera ceremony and another wedding the same day as our wedding!

The flowers were leftovers from the morning’s wedding.

The architecture speaks for itself.  Such beauty just isn’t created in today’s world.

Minutes before the guests started to arrive!

Look at those pipes!!

The photographer was up in the organ pit when he took this picture…did I mention my family is huge?!  People, people everywhere!!

A prettier church cannot be found within the limits of the city we live.  However, if I were to do this all over again, I’d fight a little harder to have a ceremony that was more specific to us and our relationship.  We (specifically, me) had a rough time with the priest that performed our ceremony (he did not do our premarital hoopla), and I made many sacrifices at the very last-minute that I didn’t know I’d have to make.

All-in-all, though, the church was spectacular.

    Ahhh, gorgeous. I wish we’d had a prettier church. 😦 Oh well, sacrifices had to be made in order to find a church that allowed non-members and outside pastors.
