I know that are tons of threads about having a legal marriage at your DW location and also about having a symbolic wedding.
We are getting married in June 2015 and my vision has been to have my BFF who is also a children's pastor marry us. I realize this wouldn't be a legal marriage if she performed it. We would still need to do a city hall wedding.
this my sound silly because I'm about to reference a Friends episode...but I wanted to know if there is any way to do a legal marriage performed by your own officiant similar to how Joey married Monica and Joey. (yes, I know I just referenced a fiction situation).
Ideally we want to do the legal marriage in Mexico. I would like to see if there is anything we can do to get officiant up to par with the requirements in order to make it legal or if we should just forget this idea.
If we do the legal marriage, I believe that it is done by a judge. Would the judge be offended if we had our officiant take over the sermon part. I really don't want someone who doesn't know us to conduct our wedding.
