Marriage Licence Information

You must obtain a marriage license prior to your wedding and bring it with you to the ceremony. I will sign it, making your marriage legal, and mail it back to the County Clerk’s office if you choose.

To obtain your license locally, please visit your Southern Oregon County Clerk’s website for their specific requirements:

Jackson County (Ashland, Medford, Jacksonville)

Josephine County (Grants Pass)

Klamath County (Klamath Falls)

Douglas County (Roseburg)

Curry County (Gold Beach, Brookings)

Coos County (Coos Bay, Bandon)

Lane County (Florence, Veneta, Eugene)

I also officiate weddings in the Redwoods and Coast of Northern California. Please visit the County Clerk’s website for the following county marriage requirements:

Del Norte County (Jedediah Smith State Park, Crescent City area)

Humboldt County (Eureka, Arcata, Redwoods & Coast)

Once you have your marriage license the ceremony can be performed within 60 days at the location of your choice within the state of Oregon and 90 days for California.

Southern Oregon Wedding Photographers

I meet a lot of vendors as a wedding officiant and spend the most time with photographers. I’ve made special connections with a few bright and beautiful photographers who are especially professional, exceptionally kind, and obviously talented!

I hope you reach out to them for your wedding photography needs…
