It's possible. Quakers offer the option to be "married in care of the meeting", and the couple gets a Quaker wedding and certificate. Nothing is filed with the government.

Many mainline churches offer "commitment ceremonies" that are much the same.

Some churches wash their hands of it by only blessing couples, admonishing if they want government recognition, they should go down to the courts.
