Are marriages performed in the Clerk’s Office?
Yes, marriages are performed in the Clerk’s Office.

  • $20.00 filing fee and $10.00 per certified copy after marriage

  • Both parties must be present with a picture ID

  • Applicants under 21 need to bring a certified birth certificate

  • Applicants under 18 need parental approval


There is a three day waiting period before picking up the “Certificate of Marriage”. Both parties do not need to be present to pick-up the license.

If wedding is performed by an officiant other than a clergy or Justice of the Peace, the person performing the service needs to get a Certificate from the Secretary of State’s office to be a “One Day Solemnizer”. More information on this is available at the Secretary of State's website below.

We can supply a list of the local Justices of the Peace if needed.

Wherever the couple applies for the Marriage License, that is where they will always get a certified copy, it doesn’t move around with you.
