Archbishop David L. Cooper You can get a priest for your wedding at any location. This site proves that there is an alternative for you to have a wedding at an outside location and still have a valid priest!
The word Priest (etymologically "elder", from presbyteros, presbyter) has taken the meaning of "sacerdos - (Latin) priest; this word is related to the word sacer, which means "sacred", from which no substantial equivalents has been formed in various modern languages (English, French, German). The priest is the minister of Divine worship, and especially of the highest act of worship, sacrifice. In this sense, every religion has its priests, exercising more or less exalted sacerdotal functions as intermediaries between man and the Divinity. (Heb. 5:1-4).

Note: It is the Vatican that has said that the Orthodox share the Catholic Faith and are separated sister Catholic Churches. The Envoy Magizine article about Archbishop Cooper is misleading. The terms Orthodox Catholic and Orthodox Christian are synonomous. There are independent Western Rite Orthodox jurisdictions all over the world. Archbishop Cooper's Order does NOT have gay or women priests.
