What religion was this wedding officiant?

I was looking through a coworker's wedding pics on db. She's Catholic and her DH is Jewish. The man performing the wedding looked to be wearing tallit like other rabbis and other Jews wear, but he was also wearing a clerical collar. Rabbis don't wear clerical collars, do they? Do Catholic priests wear anything resembling tallit?

  • Catholic priests wear stoles, but they're not the same pattern - they're a bright color which varies by the time of year.  There are also other Christian religions where the clergy has a collar.

  • Probably a Reform rabbi or a priest.

    No, now that I think about it, I don't think even the most Reform of rabbis would, lol. Usually in interfaith marriages there's a priest and a rabbi, and each does their own part.
