But it’s gotten me thinking: What celebrity would be the best officiant ever? It’s a tall order. They need to be eloquent and warm, with a little gravitas but also some humor. Boring ceremonies = the worst. My first choice is Neil Patrick Harris, because what can’t that guy do? I think he’d crush it. A close second, though, based on my BFF’s suggestion, is Wallace Shawn. Martin Sheen and Meryl Streep also seem like solid choices.

Maybe it’d be better to have someone with a little fictional experience, though. Loudon Wainwright did it in 40-Year-Old Virgin, Matt LeBlanc on Friends, Amy Poehler solemnized a penguin wedding on Parks and Recreation — they all seem like good options too.
