Mary Martha and Nathan’s lives center around their faith and so it was no surprise that they would plan a faith-focused wedding, as well.
According to Mary Martha, “Although we also looked forward to the reception, the ceremony was the most important part of our wedding day.”
Their service followed that traditional Episcopal celebration and blessing of marriage, complete with communion. Mary Martha said that it was important the they celebrate the sacrament with friends and family.
While the ceremony was Episcopal at its core, it incorporated aspects of Nathan’s Quaker tradition. And friends and family played different roles from reader, to acolyte, to organist and choir member
Here are a few favorites from before the ceremony, while Mary Martha and Nathan were getting ready. And a few more from their ceremony, taken inconspicuously from the sides and the back of the sanctuary.
