    Aaron - I didn't watch the video until just now - I just saw the initial picture which shows a wedding at a Waffle House. However, after watching the video, I'm thinking it was quite a tacky wedding. Rings in the waffles? Bride smoking at the altar? I don't know. I guess I don't come from that kind of an area. LOL

    Not sure what it had to do with church. So the title's question confuses me.

    To me the question is really "Would your pastor perform this ceremony?" or something like that. :)

    we don't have a pastor right now, still searching for God's man.
    Most pastors would preform a marriage outside of a church building. I know some limit to only marriages between christians though, I believe it's been discussed here before.
    For those who would preforma marriage ceremony outside the building, he has no control over what they do at the ceremony, and probably wouldn't even know about all the details of the ceremony or the 'reception' afterwards. I see no problem with a pastor preforming a marriage ceremony outside a church building. My son was married on a bridge over a little pond last fall, by a pastor, they seved fried bologna sandwiches.

    I have performed several weddings outside a 'church building.' My favorite was Grayton Beach, FL, at sunset. (nice).

    But I wouldn't do a wedding that I felt was mocking the serious nature of the vow taken. After all...one term used to describe a minister's role at a wedding (an older term) is solemnify.

    Now...a rehearsal dinner or reception at the Waffle House, with scattered, smothered, covered hash browns...well, let's just say they could skimp on the honorarium then. :D

    I don't see how it would be a problem. The clergyman should be able to get his meal comped as part of ceremony.

    This made me laugh very loudly in the coffee shop where I'm post from...in Gwinnett County! :D

    I agree with annsni it was tacky all around. Not knowing the people or pastor involved I won't pass judgment, but it is not something I personally would want to be involved with.

    Recently I saw something about a couple being married at a Taco Bell, and locally there is a couple going to be married at a Walmart.
