Question by maryhamm01: If my fiancee and I are both catholic, but want to be married somewhere other than a church, what do we do?
We want to get married either outside or in a hall rather than a church. We’re both Catholic, and it doesn’t matter to him, but I want the Catholic church to still recognize our marriage. What would I need to do for that to happen?

You just need to find a priest whose willing to perform the wedding outside of the church. Talk to a few priests from your local diocese. Having an outdoor wedding is not that that uncommon, and I’m sure someone in your diocese, if not the priest from your parish, should be able to perform the wedding. There may be other ways, but that’s the simplest way I know to make sure your marriage is recognized.
