Can you hold a micro/mini/elopement wedding at the courthouse? YES you can!

You can have your wedding inside the building with a small number of people (10). During Covid time, everyone will need to wear a mask while inside the building.

If you haven’t gotten your marriage license prior to your wedding day, no worries. Arrive at 4p, get your license and then go into the courtroom for your wedding ceremony.

You can dress up or remain casual, carry a bouquet (or not), take photos and videotape inside. The prosecutor or defense table will be used to sign your marriage license.

Weddings occur at the end of final court proceedings.

Depending on the weather, you could choose to have your wedding on courthouse grounds outside. You can have more people attend your wedding ceremony if you are outside.

You will make a payment for your marriage license and a separate payment for the ceremony.
