Whose wedding was officiated? Arie Luyendyk and Lauren Burnham
The story behind how the "This is How We Do It" singer was able to officiate the Bachelor couple's wedding is really quite "random." The couple had been planning to get married a second time before they ran into Jordan at an event.
“It was so random because we did this appearance and Montell Jordan was there, and he’s like the coolest guy,” Luyendyk told former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast.
While speaking with Jordan, Luyendk said he “was joking about” having to leave “because we have to go hurry up and get married because we gotta put the baby down by 6:30. This is kind of what you do, right, as parents.”
To that, the singer-songwriter revealed that he was an “ordained minister” and offered to “marry” the couple.
“He was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll go with you!'” said Luyendyk. “So him and his wife Kristin jumped in the car and then they came with us to The Little White Chapel.”
