Carrie Brownstein, Amy Poehler Officiate Impromptu Wedding at Book Event

‘Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl’ discussion turns into unexpected wedding at Pasadena church

Carrie Brownstein‘s Los Angeles-area book event to promote her new autobiography turned into an impromptu wedding as the Sleater-Kinney rocker served as an officiant for two attendees. The Portlandia star is a licensed wedding officiant, so she obliged the two fans by bringing them onstage to say “I do.” Amy Poehler – who was on hand to co-host the Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl discussion at Pasadena, California’s Central Presbyterian Church – provided flowers to the couple as well as a church organ rendition of “Greensleeves,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“All of us here are rooting for you,” Brownstein told the couple. “In the way that we always root for ourselves, in the way that we root for love to always win out over despair, for hope to win out over fear, for joy to win out over sorrow, we root for you in those ways … We root for the two of you to make each other feel the biggest, strongest, most special you ever felt.”

Brownstein’s book tour continues on Wednesday with a chat with author Dave Eggers in San Francisco before the Portlandia actress takes over Portland with special guest Tig Notaro on Thursday. The Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl trek will conclude November 17th in Toronto.
