1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

Congratulations! Choosing to enter a covenant relationship is one of life’s important decisions and joyous occasions. It is also a time for prayer, planning, preparation, and growth. The clergy of Christ Church want this special occasion to be lovely and meaningful. In addition, we are committed to providing you with the resources necessary for a lasting and loving Christian relationship. In accordance with the Episcopal Church, federal law and Virginia law, we are honored to offer the sacrament of marriage to all people, regardless of sexual orientation.  

Please note that:

  • Weddings are not scheduled during Advent (December) or Lent (generally February or March).
  • There are different procedures and costs for member versus non-member events.
  • We strongly encourage all couples to participate in a covenant preparation program.  
  • If either party is divorced, at least one year must have elapsed between the final divorce decree and the date of remarriage. Approval for remarriage must be obtained from the Bishop of the Diocese of Virginia. Your clergy person will guide you through this process.

For further information on planning and scheduling your wedding, please contact Meredith Bracco, at 703-778-4931 or via email.

We hold you in prayer as you take this important step toward your shared life.
