Wedding Ceremony Inspiration: Wedding Vows & Readings

Your wedding vows are some of the most important words you will ever say to one another. When decided on which direction to take, you will want to consider what’s important to you and your marriage. Most of our couples want a ceremony that are rooted in their Christian values, but also reflect their personalty and unique love story.

We love the following scripture, and hope you will find it inspiring as you plan your vows:

Genesis 1:27-28: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.' "

Song of Solomon 8:6-7: “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised."

Colossians 3:14: “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."

1 Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

Ecclesiastes 4:12: “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

Mark 10:9: “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

1 John 4:16: “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."

MINNESOTA WEDDING VENUE | JUSTINE + MIKE

Although Spring has officially arrived, we’re loving the pictures from Justine and Mike’s winter wedding! These two tied the knot here at The Outpost Center and we were honored to host them! They were both so joyful on the wedding day- Justine was simply beautiful and Mike was quite handsome too! They are such a great match and watching them become Husband and Wife was a blessing.

OUTDOOR MINNESOTA WEDDING VENUE | KAI & LIZ

We love a winter wedding here at The Outpost Center! There is nothing quite like the magic of a snow-filled wedding day here in Minnesota. Kai and Liz’s wedding was what we could call rustic glam! Kai is active duty military and looked so handsome in his dress blues! And Liz was absolutely breathtaking in her lace gown and fur shawl.

Before the reception, they snuck away for a little s’mores roasting- it was the cutest!
