What differentiates our weddings from a virtual wedding?
Virtual weddings take place with avatars in a virtual space. In our weddings the participants present themselves. The marriage takes place in a physical location – the host location of the ceremony.

What is the difference between our service and a proxy wedding?
A proxy marriage occurs when someone else represents an absent spouse. In our weddings, the participants represent themselves. They visually appear before an officiant and witnesses; their personal verbal agreement to enter the marriage is heard by the officiant and witnesses. Our service is not a proxy marriage. Each participant must appear before the officiant personally. They cannot be represented by a third party.
