Wedding Customs in Communal Amana

Love happened in communal Amana.

Marriage was common, although the single celibate life was thought more spiritual. Wedding customs were fascinating.

I'm linking here to an earlier blog by Emilie Hoppe. She gives a detailed and colorful description of marriage customs from 1855-1932.

In the video below, Kaci, a summer intern at the Homestead Church gives a quick overview of Amana wedding customs in the communal days.
