Have you seen the one about what to expect in a Quaker wedding? We interviewed 18 Friends, including five couples, about what makes a Quaker wedding special. Bonus: photos from real Quaker weddings!
So rather than a pastor or minister marrying the couple, it is the people getting married themselves who are doing so, and they’re doing so before God and their gathered community. They’re making a promise that they’ll work hard and abide by their vows, and the community in return is making a promise that they’ll support the couple.
