Nine years ago, my husband and I hosted a HUGE wedding. There were about 500 people in attendance. It set our families back a lot of hard-earned money and there was so much stress! Yes, I loved it and would do the same thing again but not everyone wants a big wedding.

Are you in a relationship that's headed towards marriage and you think it's time to tie the knot? Your 'save the date' might be closer than you realize!

At the end of June, to round out the most recent sermon series: Journey of Two, Crossroads Christian Church in Newburgh will be hosting a free wedding ceremony for couples who want to be married!

According to their website, The Journey of Two - Wedding Ceremony will take place on Sunday, June 25, 12:30 PM. Show up with your fiancé, a marriage certificate from the state, and we will marry you for free. Bring as many family and friends as you want. We’ll have a photographer and refreshments. Again, this is free! Men, this is a great chance for you step up and show your girl that you’re serious about loving her. 

Wow, this is a GREAT event! And, as with all weddings, you are encouraged to attend marriage counseling prior to the event so you know you are making the best decision for yourself and possibly your family. If you want to get married at Crossroads' free ceremony event, be sure to register!

And here's a list of things you can bring to make your day special!
