Format: Hardcover
As a woman who is Jewish married to man who is Catholic, this book has been a Godsend. Too often interfaith couples are ridiculed or made to choose one faith or the other. Brockway's book seamlessly works with all religions and cultures to create a ceremony to embrace each spouse's individual faiths or traditions. I was able to incorporate many of her suggestions to take the stress and potential conflict out of my special day. Brockway should be able to claim the title of expert in this area. I have since loaned my book to several friends who also have benefited from her knowledge. After persusing my copy, they purchased their own. Whether you are a Mormon marrying a Lutheran, an African Amercian marrying an Asian, or any "non-traditional" couple in love, this is the book for you.

A perfect book for anyone trying to incorporate more than one religion into your wedding ceremony. Your Interfaith Wedding has everything you need to do this, from sample vows to real life stories...you will find it all. Rev. Laurie Sue offers unique ideas and great tips on how to include everyone in your family. Even if you don't follow a certain religion, you may enjoy another tradition that she describes in her book. Plus it's a fun read!

Getting married is stressful enough, but when you combine that with marrying someone of a diferent faith the stress levels soar! Reverend Brockway's book helps you get thru this trying time with love, intellegence and a sense of humor. Way to go Reverend! My best friend is getting married to a wonderful man of a different religion as well next year and I have already bought her this book. I know that it will help her more than words can say.

This book is one the most helpful tools I've acquired in my wedding planning! I am pagan, my fiance is spiritual - but my in laws are evangelical Christians. Needless to say, this book gave a ton of great advice, many great stories and lots of ideas for our wedding ceremony!! It is well written, thorough and focuses on the whole point of marriage: LOVE. Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway is an amazing officiant! (I would know, she's marrying my fiance and I in June 2015!)
