My Fiance and I thought for a really long time on who we would want to marry us. Our church’s pastor won’t do it because we already live together (don’t get me started on that!) and we didn’t want to ask just a random pastor from a different church. A Justice of the Peace was an option, but not our favorite. So we decided on my sisters BF! He is going to get ordained over the internet and perform our ceremony for us!
Who is marrying you? Why and how did you choose them?

My g’ma married us for our wedding. She is a minister of the Universal Life Church and was approved to marry us in PA, so we were thrilled. It really made our ceremony personal and intimate. I don’t regret that decision.

We were trying to decide between FI’s Pastor or mine officiating, so tomake it fair we decided on neither. My cousin is a Pastor, so we decided to ask him, so Fiance knows him too.

I’m getting married by a very close and dear friend whom i’ve worked with for over 15 years. He is an Imam (muslim pastor). I couldn’t imagine being married by anyone else, He’s one of my special touches at my wedding

We’re having a “celebrant” marry us. She’s not affiliated with any churches, but she’s more than a justice of the peace. She’s custom writing the entire ceremony. We’re so excited 🙂

One of my FH’s good friends (and now, a good friend to both of us) is marrying us. He is a lawyer, and in our state, lawyers can marry couples.

My Husband’s Uncle is a Priest and married us!

I chose other – we’re having a Celebrant Officiant. They are technically non-denominational pastors, mostly because many states don’t allow anyone else (besides a JOP) to marry couples. But were are having absolutely no religion in our ceremony!
