Meet Reverend Tori Spelling
The actress gets ordained to perform a same-sex wedding at her bed and breakfast
Tori Spelling is an actress, a mom, a reality-show star, and now … a minister?
“I am now officially ordained,” Spelling, 34, writes on her MySpace blog. “Yep, that’s right – Reverend Tori Spelling! I did it last week online and my official certificate is in the mail.”
The occasion? The first wedding at Chateau La Rue, the bed and breakfast Spelling runs with husband Dean McDermott on their Oxygen reality show Tori & Dean Inn Love.
“I was so honored when the couple asked me to officiate,” Spelling writes. “We did it on the front steps of the Chateau as 40 of their friends looked on seated in a lounge-like atmosphere. It was so beautiful as I united Tony and Dex as life partners in love.”
Spelling, who welcomed son Liam in March, says she was “beyond nervous” while performing the ceremony. “I’ve done live theater and presented at the Emmys and this by far was my scariest moment simply because they had bestowed such an honor upon me and I didn’t want to let them down.”
After the nuptials, the happy couple and their guests dined on steak, sea bass and veggie lasagna and enjoyed a performance of “Cabaret” by one of the grooms. Spelling and McDermott hit the dance floor with Liam for what Spelling calls “a magical evening of pure love.”
The lesson of the day? “Love is pure and true; love knows no gender,” Spelling writes. “I’ve found it, Tony and Dex have found it, and I wish love to all that seek it. Don’t ever let anyone tell you who to love. Only our hearts can dictate that.”
