Forget about being the best man or maid of honor at your friend's wedding. Now, the best job could be officiating the ceremony!

As our favorite Hollywood couples continue to throw fabulous weddings for their family and close friends, we're seeing a pattern of famous faces stepping up to officiate the romantic day.

Just this past weekend, Patrick Stewart enlisted his X-Men costar Ian McKellen to help make his marriage to singer-songwriter Sunny Ozwell official.

The best part is, the ceremony went off without a hitch. "Yes, married," Stewart tweeted with a sweet photo of him and his beautiful bride enjoying their first moments as newlyweds by having some fun in a giant colorful ball pit.
