Our ceremony was held at Saint Peter Catholic Church in Mount Clemens. In order to be married here, the church requires that you are a participating (read: attending!) member of the parish for one year before your wedding date.
We had to go through the Catholic Pre-Cana counseling before our marriage, which involved a group meeting with the priest, administration of the FOCUSS test, two in-home small discussion group meetings with a parish couple, and a final meeting with the priest. We started our Pre-Cana in April of 2009 and we were married in October 2009.
The total cost for the church was $400. For the organist to play the ceremony, it was an additional $150. We also made additional donations on the day of the wedding to the priest and the altar servers.
