Maui Greek Orthodox Wedding is steeped in ritual and symbolism. It is a sacrament unlike other religions and has not been altered throughout the history of time. In the Orthodox Christian Church, marriage is one of the Holy Sacraments and is a gift from God. Rather than viewing marriage as a legal contract, Orthodox Christians understand that it is God that joins together two people in a beautiful relationship of mutual love. Vows in this case are seen unnecessary because it is God that joins the couple together, not the law. The bride and groom live the Orthodox Christian life together and understand that their relationship exists to bring them closer to God. Through this relationship that the couple fulfill their true purpose in life serving God.
