Holy Tori Spelling!

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum is now an ordained minister, having obtained her certification online in order to marry a gay couple at her bed-and-breakfast.

"I am now officially ordained. Yep, that's right…Reverend Tori Spelling! I did it last week online and my official certificate is in the mail," she wrote on her MySpace blog.

Spelling said she "united Tony and Dex as life partners in love" last weekend on the steps of the Chateau La Rue, the inn she runs with her husband Dean McDermott as featured in their reality series Tori & Dean: Inn Love.

Despite her years of experience in front of the camera and gigs in live theater and as an Emmy presenter, Spelling admitted she was "beyond nervous" as she performed the commitment ceremony.

"[T]his by far was my scariest moment simply because they had bestowed such an honor upon me and I didn't want to let them down," she wrote.

Apparently she didn't, as she recalled that there wasn't a "dry eye in the driveway" when the grooms recited vows they wrote themselves.

After the ceremony, guests attended a reception on the grounds of the Chateau La Rue, where they sipped martinis named after the couple's favorite Broadway musicals and dined on "tapas of hanger steak, sea bass, veggie lasagna, and tuna tartare," per Spelling.

She said she and McDermott took their infant son Liam out for a twirl on the dance floor in his parent's arms, as the threesome "swayed and smiled to Madonna."

The experience of making her debut as a reverend left Spelling waxing philosophical about the nature of true love.

"As I put Liam down to bed that evening I told him that he will one day find true love. A love that unites him as one with his soulmate," she wrote. "He will be raised knowing that true love is the ultimate and pure love know no age, gender, or race."

Spelling and McDermott are currently filming the second season of Tori & Dean: Inn Love, which is due to debut on Oxygen later this summer.
