 destination wedding ceremony in California

Is your destination wedding in Los Angeles or thereabouts? Many people have told us, “I want to get married in California, but I don’t know if I can because I don’t live there.” No worries. The Officiant Guy is here to help you.

Top 6 Reasons to Hire Officiant Guy for Your California Destination Wedding Ceremony:

  1. Chris Robinson is a specialized notary authorized by extensive training by the State of California and the Los Angeles County Clerk’s. He is authorized to office to issue California confidential marriage licenses. So he can both issue your wedding license to be married and officiate your destination wedding ceremony anywhere in Southern California.
  2. He’s incredibly accurate in his marriage license paperwork. The LA County Clerk’s office has suspended many specialized notaries in Los Angeles County for mistakes made on their marriage licenses. Chris doesn’t make those mistakes. He’s never been suspended. Nor has he ever been on probation. He’s very precise. His legal training prepared him for accuracy in paperwork. If there is a mistake on your wedding license then the County Clerk’s Office will reject the marriage license and require a duplicate to be processed. You don’t want to have to deal with that on your honeymoon, do you?
  3. Chris will hand-deliver your marriage license back to the LACC to be filed. Then a marriage certificate (that certifies that you have been officially married) will be issued to you quicker and without error. Too many officiants will mail in the marriage license assuming that the mail will not be lost. That will never happen to you if you pick Officiant Guy as your wedding officiant.
  4. Chris has officiated thousands of weddings over two decades. So he can guide you easily through the process of a destination wedding ceremony. Nothing throws him off. Your marriage ceremony will be very smooth and carefree.
  5. Chris has been to every possible wedding ceremony site in Southern California. He can make recommendations if you have something in mind, but don’t know where to go.
  6. Chris’s level of sophistication, sense of humor and easy demeanor makes the wedding about you, and puts the focus on your relationship. He takes his role seriously, but more importantly, he gets it right.

Los Angeles California Marriage License

If you would like us to provide you with a Los Angeles California marriage license we can do so easily. The marriage requirements for a confidential marriage license are:

  1. You must been living together as man and wife. However, the County just states that. They don’t specify how long you have been living together. We guess they figure it’s none of their business.
  2. You do not need any witnesses.
  3. Your certificate of marriage is sealed from public record, so it remains private to you- – meaning no media, no solicitors, no telemarketers.

3) a copy of any divorce decree or annulment (if any) that took place in the last 2 years.


California Apostille

Many of our clients come from other countries that require an apostille or certification sent to them as soon as possible.  It can be very difficult to understand where to go, who to see, and who to keep in contact with when you are from a foreign country.  We have navigated this bureaucracy many times before. Chris, being an attorney, can be your United States advocate. He can assist in submitting your marriage license to the appropriate authorities. By doing so he can get your apostille to you quickly.  It can be very tense dealing with the goverment in these matters. Let Chris do it for you and send your apostille to you by Fedex or any service that you require.
