1 Preparing for your Wedding Vow Renewal Let me take this opportunity to congratulate you on your upcoming wedding vow renewal. Our prayer is that this occasion will be a joyous one for you both. We are excited about helping you to recommit your marriage and bond with the blessing and direction of the Lord. Enclosed is a wedding vow renewal packet. There are two choices on how the renewal of your vows may take place. 1. A private ceremony in a Pastor s office; or 2. A more formal ceremony in the sanctuary The information in this packet is self-explanatory. Please follow the directions and submit the necessary paper work to Dawn Nickel at 3100 Galloway Road, Bensalem, PA If you have any questions, please feel free to call Dawn directly at and she will be happy to assist you. Thank you again for allowing us to serve you. God bless you. Sincerely, Del Smith Senior Pastor

2 Planning Your Wedding Vow Renewal at Christian Life Center It is our desire to encourage and support you in the fulfillment of your wedding covenant to each other and to God. In order to ensure that this day is the most meaningful and memorable for you, your family and your friends, careful planning and preparation are in order. For that reason, we are providing the following information to help you plan and prepare for your wedding vow renewal here at Christian Life Center. Our Wedding Consultant will be your personal assistant in the planning and preparations for your vow renewal. Serving as liaisons between the church staff and the wedding party, she will help you coordinate all the aspects of your ceremony. She can be a source of information and helping hand when you need it most. Having helped coordinate many weddings, we know that you will find her most pleasant and helpful to work with. She is a member of Christian Life Center and takes personal pride in ensuring your ceremony to be the best it can be. We are pleased to be able to provide a very beautiful facility for your special day. God has truly blessed us with this wonderful gift and we are glad to share it with you. Our sanctuary seats approximately 1550 people and includes a large stage area for your ceremony. The foyer will offer a vast area for your guests to enter and for your receiving line following the ceremony. Dressing rooms can be available for the bridal party upon request and those arrangements will be taken care of via your wedding consultant. Flowers and decorations can be a beautiful addition to your wedding but we only ask a few small items in return. Please use no nails or tacks, use drip less candles with protectors only, and we ask that any moving of furnishings or equipment be done by our church custodial staff. To assist you further, we have purchased several beautiful Candelabra s that are also available for your use and we are glad to provide them for your day with a small cost for the candle inserts. Setting the tone for your wedding vow ceremony is also an important element. That is why we encourage you to select your music carefully and with much thought. It is most important to keep in mind that this commitment is a special and reverent moment, not only before your guests but also before the Lord. If you need assistance in music selections we would be glad to assist you and or provide information that you can use to make your choices from. It is our desire that the quality of music be representative of the standard of musical excellence, which is upheld in the services of Christian Life Center. Your consultant can provide you with a list of musicians and soloist that normally minister at our church and are familiar with our instruments. It is suggested that you would chose your musicians from this list, but other arrangements can be made with your Wedding Consultant. Honorariums can be paid through the church; suggested fees are enclosed. Since this is such an important moment in your life, and it is our church home there are some general guidelines that will help make this day go well for everyone involved.

3 It is important for everyone to recognize that the church is a house of God and that each member of your wedding party conducts themselves appropriately. These are your friends and relatives and we ask that you be responsible for the people who you choose to have represented in your wedding. Your ushers should be responsible individuals to help carry out these guidelines for you. There will be no alcoholic beverages or smoking permitted anywhere on the premises. Any member of the bridal party who is found to be intoxicated will not be allowed to participate in the wedding ceremony. If the bride or groom is found to be intoxicated, the ceremony will be cancelled immediately without any refunds of any kind. Your ceremony is a covenant made before God and the congregation and nothing should hinder that. Confetti or rice must not be thrown inside or outside the church building. An alternative suggestion has been to use bubbles as the bridal party exits the building.

4 Scheduling Your Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony Scheduling your Vow Renewal at Christian Life Center is an easy process but there are a few guidelines that will help us facilitate all that is required on our part. Ceremony times may be anytime up to 4:00pm on Saturdays and up to 7:00pm on any other weekday. Weddings can be scheduled within the following times - January 1 st until two weeks before Easter - One week after Easter until one weekend before Thanksgiving - There will be no wedding ceremonies scheduled on the following holidays: Memorial Day Weekend, July 4 th weekend and Labor Day weekend. Your wedding rehearsal will be held on the evening before your wedding and can be scheduled up until 6:00pm. Your rehearsal is a very important aspect to the look of your wedding, so everyone needs to be present and on time. One hour is allotted for your rehearsal. You will be given one half hour grace period and then there will be a charge of $50.00 per half hour after that. If everyone is ready at your specific time, then with the help of our coordinators, the rehearsal can be accomplished in one hour. Remember, we are here to help you to make this day special. To schedule your Vow Renewal at Christian Life Center: 1. Pick your date. For information about available dates please call Dawn Nickel at NO dates will be held without the master calendar approval. 2. Set the time for your Vow Renewal and rehearsal.

8 Dear Christian Life Center Bridal Couple, In trying to help make your wedding a wonderful, memorable and sacred experience, we have a few guidelines we would like you to pass along to your photographer. Please, no flash photography during the actual ceremony. Feel free to take flash photography during the processional and recessional. Please do not stand on steps or platform. Please to not stand on the floor space directly in front of the 2 main aisles; the groomsmen stand on the right hand side of the center aisle. Please do not block them in any way. There is to be no moving around during the ceremony. Pastor is very strict about this and will stop the ceremony to correct the situation if needed. You are welcome to set up your tripod half-way back in the main aisle once the bride has entered. You will have 30 minutes to take photographs in the sanctuary after the receiving line is finished. Do not move anything in the church without the permission of the wedding coordinator. (candelabras, microphones, etc.) The wedding is not a photo opportunity but rather a religious ceremony and it is expected to be treated as such. If a photo cannot be obtained during the ceremony, we can arrange for it to be taken afterwards. Thank you for your cooperation, Wedding Consultant Christian Life Center
