Does anyone know if New York State allows people that were ordained online to legally marry a couple? My fiancé and I don't belong to a church. I mean we are not against church or anything we just don't go to church. We are getting married in the woods on my parents property and would like to have my cousin marry us. This would help the situation both buget wise as well as bridesmaid wise as I have more girls than he guys. Having my cousin be the officiant would help even us out and keep her part of the ceremony.
