Are Celebrity Wedding Officiants Replacing Elvis?
There is a fun article in the December 10, 2010 edition of the New York Times about celebrity wedding officiants.
"BEING wed by an Elvis impersonator is so last century," writes author Ari Karpel. "In the age of reality TV and Twitter, celebrities (we use the term loosely) are more accessible than ever. Some of them are even available to officiate at your nontraditional wedding, and they come without the reverence of a priest, pastor or rabbi."
Many celebs get ordained online at Universal Life Church. Although this credential is widely accepted in California it is not in New York and it is also very difficult to perform a legal wedding in Nevada if you are not ordained and legally authorized in the state. So check your state laws and clergy credentials to always make sure your wedding ceremony is legally binding.
