Marcio & Lisa | Wedding | Liriodendron | Bel Air, MD

March 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This was my first Quaker faith wedding experience. A Quaker marriage is quite different from most other wedding ceremonies. It is extremely simple and free from typical ceremonial rituals.

The couple enters together and sits facing friends & family. Everyone worships silently until the couple feels it's time to say their vows. They rise, hold hands, and exchange their vows and rings. Then they sign a Quaker marriage certificate which is then read aloud, followed by more silent worship, during which congregants and guests may stand to say a few words or voice support for the couple. The meeting ends with the bride and groom's first kiss as husband and wife and all guests shake hands and sign the certificate as witnesses.
