Thinking about St. Michael’s Church for your wedding? Before giving us a call, please read the St. Michael’s Wedding Policy below, then contact the Executive Assistant to the Rector for more information or to schedule a meeting with the Rector.
You are now embarking on the most magnificent journey of your earthly life. The Sacrament of marriage is a most powerful and life changing event. Not only is it an event, it is a brand new way of life! In the marriage service, we are reminded that the union of husband and wife in heart, body and mind is intended by God for their mutual joy; for the help and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity; and, when it is God’s will, for the procreation of children and their nurture in the knowledge and love of the Lord. Therefore, marriage is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently, deliberately, and in accordance with the purposes for which it was instituted by God.
We at St. Michael’s rejoice with you at this special time and look forward to assisting you in planning a Christ-centered marriage and wedding service. Because the service is conducted in a church, it should reflect the glory and honor due Him. It is a sacred service. It is never bride or groom centered, but always Christ-centered.
Your first step toward a St. Michael’s wedding is for both the bride and groom to make an appointment with the Rector or one of the clergy team of St. Michael’s Church where we will discuss the pre-marital ministry. To do that, simply call Susan Waring, the St. Michael’s wedding coordinator at 843-724-7568. She will direct you.
Planning a wedding is a complex process. For this reason, the church will only discuss and take direction for wedding plans from the bride or groom.
Before making any wedding plans for a service in St. Michael’s Church, the couple must have a preliminary interview with either the Rector or one of the other members of the clergy team.
