Yes, we had success with our sister in law being recognized by the city as an officiant. She was ordained online, and someone we had met when asking for recommendations for non-religious officiants served as her endorser to the city. I just had to bring him a form to sign, then she submitted all her paperwork and received her certificate to the city quite quickly. If you have been looking into it, I’m sure you’ve seen the city’s website about how to be recognized as a wedding officiant. She just followed those directions and voila.
I really was not expecting it to go so smoothly, but we had no issues and she was our official officiant.
