My fiancee is in the Army and we have been planning a wedding but he got orders to deploy a lot sooner than expected and it conflicts with the wedding date. We are both very religious, but he is not Catholic. Our wedding was to be in my church. Since the deployment came up we have had family and friends talk to us about going to the justice of the peace and get married, then when he gets back have our large church wedding.
My question is what is the Catholic view on getting married outside of the church and then having a wedding later in the church? (I’m the only Catholic in my family)
Thank you so much! God Bless!
