That's awesome. Please let us know what sort of reactions come from the Mormon side of the family. I imagine some faces will have that priceless look about them. :haha:

I'll let you know how it goes! It'll definitely be interesting. I'll have pictures and video too (professional photos, amateur video because we're poor college grads ;) ).

Already we've gotten the following reactions:

One distant relative came up to my fiance at the family reunion last month and asked him if our wedding is against God.

Our best man's wife (who is very very very devoutly, enthusiastically Mormon) thinks our wedding is sacriligious and doesn't want to come (our reaction was "okay, that's fine, if you don't want to come then don't) - but she decided that she's coming anyway "even though I won't like it and I won't have fun" (I think she just wants to keep an eye on her husband ::rolls eyes::).

When I told my fiance's 23-year-old cousin about the FSM she was absolutely horrified. She's only been back from her mission in the Phillipines for 8 months and her father is a bishop so that does help explain the reaction.

Lots of Brandon's family is going to have a hard time wtih this. That kind of makes it more fun :) Luckily his family absolutely love loves LOVES weddings and they've been asking us when we're going to get married for the longest time, and they seem to like me...so those 3 things seem to be helping :)

Luckily Brandon's mom is totally on board, she's even buying one of her grandsons a pirate sword to wear just for the wedding. :)

I think that most of the family is looking at it as a pirate-themed wedding, not as an actual religious wedding.

Good advice Roy, good advice.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Hmmm, an interesting question. Then can my fianceé and I both serve as ministers (we're both ordained by the ULC mind you) at our wedding for each other? That shouldn't be too complex to sort out, right? :D

Really, you should ask your state's marriage officiant registry.

Okay, but are all three of those types of weddings on the same legal level? Do civil arrangements have the same visiting rights, tax breaks, etc as the religious ones?
