Ceremonies

I am happy to accommodate couples with their choice of ceremonies. Couples may, if they wish, write their own vows, and even their own ceremonies. It is their day, their wedding. My function is to officially pronounce their marriage, and I will do all I can to make the occasion as special as possible.

Time Frames

A Marriage License is good for 60 days, i.e., ceremony must take place within 60 days after filing of intention to marry, otherwise marriage license is void.

After the ceremony, the Marriage Certificate will be filed with the Town Clerk within 1-2 weeks.

State law prohibits me from providing a copy of the completed license to the couple after the ceremony. Please let me know in advance if there is an immediate need for a certified copy, as arrangements can be made for sending the Certificate overnight to the appropriate town hall.
