courtship sequence/a sequence of courtship

2 replies   
The courtship sequence began with the marriage rite and was finalized through consummation.

My attempt:

Die Reihenfolge von Liebeswerben begann mit der Ehe und durch Vollendung abgeschlossen war.
I'm not sure how to express "consummation" (as in sexual intercourse) in German. I'd also like to use my own expression "courtship sequence" multiple times, but I'm not sure how to approximate it in German. I appreciate the help.

TranslationDas Liebeswerben begann mit dem Vermählungsritus und endete mit dem Vollzug der Ehe.
Your syntax is unfortunately incorrect (with 'war' at the end of the sentence).
'Reihenfolge von Liebeswerben'doesn't work. The context implies that there is a sequence.
