I am recently engaged and wondered if anyone else has a similar situation. I am Catholic and my fiance is protestant. We agree on almost everything with our faith. We currently attend a protestant service regularly and sometimes a Catholic service. It is important to me to have our marriage recognized by the Catholic church. We are both students who live in Chicago, but we will most likely have the wedding at home in Ohio. My home church does not have a center aisle and rarely has weddings. I am not a huge fan or the preist, but I do enjoy the deacons. My fiance's home church is nice and we know the pastor decently well. We are also considering havign a pastor we are close to in Chicago marry us.
I know that I need to get in contact with my home church to talk to them, but I wondered if anyone had a similar situation. I roughly know the rules of Catholic weddings. I think it would be great to be able to get married at my fiance's home church or somewhere else, to have the pastor from Chicago marry us (which I do know he would travel, that isn't an issue), and to go through PreCana with the Catholic church to make the marriage valid. Is this possible without a separate ceremony for the Catholic part?
