You forgot to get a marriage license? Don’t panic.
Marriage is, technically, a legal contract. And so a wedding ceremony has some requirements.
The most important legal requirement is that you need get a marriage license before your wedding ceremony takes place. That’s just the law and a legal detail that needs to be fulfilled with no exceptions.
I am often called by couples, in a panic, to come to their aid. I always keep a few marriage licenses on hand for these types of emergencies. And being that the County Clerk’s office is closed on weekends, this call usually happens on a Friday night or Saturday morning. No worries, I can help you out.
Sometimes I get a call from a less panicked couple who explain that they totally forgot to get a marriage license, had the wedding ceremony, and now need to get remarried with a wedding license. I can easily issue a marriage license and be your wedding officiant in a private legal wedding ceremony so nobody has to know that your “friends and family” ceremony did not result in your marriage.
So, if you are having a wedding today or tomorrow, or even next week or next month, I can help you out by issuing you a California confidential marriage license. Give me a call. And don’t panic. There’s enough to worry about on your wedding day and I’m here to make sure that this portion of your Southern California wedding is stress-free.
