This is that time of year when couples who intend to eventually marry are thinking that it might be a great idea to elope or get a quickie wedding to save on their income taxes next year. You see, if you get married any time in this year, the IRS considers you married for the entire year and any tax benefits for marriage would apply. Here is a great post for ten ways that getting married affects your taxes.

This couple were big hockey fans and decided to get married just outside the Staples Center where their favorite team, the LA Kings, play in Downtown Los Angeles.

 

I get many calls at this time of year for couples who want an instant wedding. Considering that I am a specialized notary who can issue a California confidential marriage license to you, that can be done anytime and anywhere in California on a moment’s notice. I pre-purchase marriage licenses from the Los Angeles County Registrar (though I can issue them anywhere in CA). I always keep many on hand, especially at the end of the year.

This was a Malibu beach wedding with just the bride and groom and I. It was very romantic.

 

What’s great about the CA confidential marriage license is that your personal information, including the date of your wedding, is sealed from public view so NOBODY has to know that you got married in 2016 when your actually big wedding (or not) is planned for 2017. I often marry couples in a legal marriage before their official wedding ceremony for tax and insurance reasons. And your quickie wedding can be as short and sweet, as casual, as you want. I’ve even married people while they were sitting in their hot tub. Hey, this is California. We go with the flow here.

This bride and groom called recently and a few days later they said “I do” on a Malibu beach in a very early sunrise wedding. I took a nap afterwards.

 

So give me a call to get married before the New Year. I am always available to talk or email. Seriously, it’s possible for you to call me and be married an hour later. But best to call soon because time is ticking away and the New Year 2017 is fast approaching.

These wonderful ladies were married in a very impromptu, no-fuss wedding ceremony at their home. I often wear a suit to my weddings, even if it is a quickie wedding, but many couples beg me not to wear one. That’s fine with me.
