Weddings at St. Nicholas
We rejoice to learn you are interested in marriage in the holy Greek Orthodox Church.
The Sacrament of Marriage
As one of the major sacraments of the Greek Orthodox Church and one of the most ancient Christian wedding rites, the ceremony is rich with symbolism. The wedding consists of two parts: the Service of Betrothal and the Service of the Crowning. The latter consists of five sections: The Prayers; The Crowning; Readings from Scripture; The Common Cup; and the Dance of Isaiah. Signifying the Holy Trinity (God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit), rituals in the sacrament are done three times.
