There are plenty of websites that ordain laypersons as ministers, but we want to a.) Find a legitimate ordination website, and b.) make sure that we can do this in Utah in Grand County. We would like a relative to marry us and she is not currently ordained.

We're getting married! Yay! We are residents of another state planning on a wedding in Grand County, Utah, at a national park. According to the this
website for ordination, we need someone who qualifies as one of the following: "minister, rabbi, or priest of any religious denomination who are in regular communion with any religious society." This is the line that we are confused by. We can't find how the county clerk's office determines this qualification. And if I call to ask, they might just deny it outright.
Has anyone had any experience with ordination of a layperson in Utah?
Or advice for ascertaining the legitimacy of an ordination website?
