Reece Wiench and Deyton Truitt celebrated their wedding last weekend with the voice of the ChatGPT AI app leading the way and performing the priest's duties. The OpenAI's chatbot ChatGPT stepped up to officiate the wedding when faced with the unanticipated absence of a priest.


There is no requirement for a licensed marriage official to officiate ceremonies in the US-based Colorado. Therefore, Stephen Wiench, the bride's father, came up with the theory of using a more accessible and cost-effective officiant option.


According to the report,  the chatbot was at first hesitant to conduct the ceremony, 


At first, It said, "No, I can't do this, I can't officiate at your wedding, I don't have eyes, I don't have a body."


But the couple persisted and provided their personal information to the chatbot, which was woven into ChatGPT's remarks during the ceremony.


They set up a speaker to deliver the speeches and dressed it in a robot mask to give it the appearance of a human officiant speaking.


The chatbot said, "Thank you all for joining us today to celebrate the extraordinary love and unity of Reece Wiench and Deyton Truitt,"


"We are grateful and honored to everyone here, especially those who have traveled out of state," the bot commented after the couple disclosed to the ChatGPT that some of their guests were from Kansas." 

The Wedding Was Impromptu 

According to the couple, their wedding was planned in a rush, within the space of five days, because Truitt was about to deploy for the Army, and Wiench wanted to join him after the basic training.

The couple shared that they met on an online dating site and had to use artificial intelligence to officiate their wedding since they wanted to get married quickly because Deyton was scheduled to deploy for the Army at the end of June. Thus, they would not have enough time to hire a human officiant. 


This is not the first time an AI chatbot ChatGPT has done something exceptional like this. Last week, a woman divulged that her long-time client stopped working with her when he discovered that she was using a ChatGPT artificial intelligence to write content.


Also, a US lawyer was sanctioned last month for submitting a legal brief written by ChatGPT, which included several citations of non-existent court opinions and fake quotes.
