The money will benefit the churchs Good Shepherd Kitchen, a soup kitchen that opens twice a month. There was no profit for church staff on Tuesday. Not everybody is always able to afford the wedding of their dreams or a wedding in a church like this, so today we can provide that for everybody. A total of seven weddings took place by 2 p.m. with more scheduled into the evening. We have someone who is moving out of state for a new job and they just wanted to go as husband and wife, Orosan said. Its really exciting to learn each individual story and just to see their love story played out here today. Leslie and Milton Sgage came all the way from Columbus to take advantage of the ceremony for a good cause. Leslie saw information about the walk-in weddings on Facebook, and the couple decided to celebrate their fifth year of marriage by renewing their vows in the chapel. Five in Gods numerical system means faith, truth, trust in Jesus, and we just wanted to confirm that, Leslie said.It was awesome, it was awesome. The pastor that married us, I loved the vows. Orosan said the spontaneous weddings come with acommitment to God, along with a commitment to their new spouse. We ask that every couple that comes forward has thought through it.
