Our wedding is fast approaching, and I wanted to write some updates for our friends and family across the country. Today I'll start by telling you a little about our officiant!
Ryan lined up our officiant before he even popped the question.
We're big Keith Apicary fans. He's a character who presents an online show about retro video games called Talking Classics. (You can find all the episodes here. Careful, they're addictive!)
Last Christmas as we were snuggled by the tree in pajamas, Ryan asked me who would I choose to marry us if we ever got hitched. I said it would be hilarious if Keith Apicary performed the ceremony. And so a few weeks later (and a whole month before he proposed to me) Ryan contacted Nathan Barnatt, the actor behind the character. He asked Nathan would he be willing to marry us if Ryan could arrange for him to be ordained. Amazingly he agreed! Ryan and he have been working out the details and I have no idea what to expect, except to be SUPER PSYCHED.

Nathan has several characters besides Keith, and in addition to being a comedian he's one heck of a talented gymnast too. He shows off some dance moves in the video below. While our families are definitely scratching their heads over our choice for officiant, Ryan and I are very excited.
