While hearts melted at the reveal that Jesse Tyler Ferguson officiated Sarah Hyland's wedding to Wells Adams, the 'Modern Family' actor revealed that the job wasn't actually supposed to be his.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ferguson shared that he was asked to step in after his former co-star couldn’t make it. “I don’t know if people know this, but Ty Burrell was meant to do it, and there was a family emergency,” he told the outlet, adding that everyone from the cast was invited but not all could make it.
"I was like, ‘Well, no pressure, this is my first time, and then it’s going to be a wedding, and it’s going to be in Vogue magazine, and there’s also going to be paparazzi shots of me from a helicopter, officiating, no pressure,’” Ferguson joked. "I knew that Sarah and Wells wanted it to be a funny, lighthearted ceremony,” he added. “They’re not serious people, but you also don’t want to lean too heavily into the jokes because it’s a big day.”
Fortunately Burrell helped him out with some suggestions. "I was honored to do it,” Ferguson said. “Very happy to understudy Ty Burrell.”
These celebrity officiants are not only powerful in their craft, but they also have the power to unite people in love and matrimony. Flick through the gallery to find out which celebrities have been ordained, who have officiated, and the celebrity friends they have married.
