Civil Ceremony

Civil Marriage Ceremonies are performed in our office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for English ceremonies and Tuesdays and Thursdays for Spanish ceremonies - by appointment only. To ensure availability, we encourage couples to schedule appointments well in advance of the desired ceremony date. Please read the information below and then use the link at the bottom of the page to schedule your appointment.

  1. The marriage license can be obtained on the same day prior to your scheduled ceremony. If you wish to obtain your marriage license before your ceremony, please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
  2. Our Marriage Room can comfortably and safely accommodate up to 12 people; if you will have more than 12 people, please add the amount to the "notes" section of the form.
  3. You are required to have at least one witness if you have a public marriage license. If you do not have your own witness, you may request a witness be provided by the Clerk-Recorder's Office for a fee, found below.
  4. You may prepare your own personal vows. If no vows have been prepared, our Civil Marriage Commissioners will use our standard vows.
  5. There is an opportunity to exchange rings during the ceremony; however, exchanging rings is not legally required to solemnize your marriage.
  6. If either partner has been recently divorced (within 6 months of scheduled ceremony date), you MUST bring physical copies of your court documents.
  7. If you are using your own commissioner (Commissioner for a Day, clergy, ordained individual, etc.) you may still rent and use our Marriage Room to host your ceremony. Fees for Marriage Room Usage, Commissioner for a Day, and more may be found below. For more information about Commissioner for a Day, please select the “Commissioner for a Day” tab to the left of this text.
