I've always wanted to get married outside. It's where I'm happiest and where I feel most filled with the joy of God's creation. My mothe has said that she won't come to the wedding if it's not in a church. I'm heartbroken. She's saying the wedding won't be blessed if it's not in a church. I'm not Catholic and nowhere in the Bible does it say I have to have a Church wedding. I'm very close to my parents and feel so disheartened that she would even think of threatening not to come over this. I don't know what to do. God is everywhere so why should it matter?
