You may obtain a marriage license from any county in the state, regardless of your in-state or out-of-state residency. The wedding must take place in WV.

  • Ohio residents must obtain their license in the county of their residence. At least one of the applicants must be a resident of the county where the wedding will take place, and the marriage must be performed in the State of Ohio.
  • Out of state residents must obtain their license in the Ohio County where the marriage ceremony will be performed. If both applicants are from out of state but wish to be married in a particular county, they must obtain their license from that county.

The Love Story Signature Celebration is the favorite among couples AND guests! This is the traditional ceremony with a customized love story written just for you! It’s often called “the best ceremony I’ve ever heard” from wedding guests. This ceremony averages between 20-30 minutes for most couples. You’ll get the traditional elements of the ceremony plus your love story and a few secrets that I only offer to this wedding package.

My Pre-Written Ceremony is already “done for you” and a great option if you want a traditional ceremony. My part runs about seven minutes, and it’s a beautiful traditional ceremony that offers choices for vows, the declaration of intent, and ring ceremony.

If you “just want to make it legal” without a ring exchange or vows, my Sign-and-Go and Curbside Ceremonies will get you married quickly! I closed the chapel doors in July of 2022, but I offer a variety of locations where I can meet and marry couples. This is a popular option for couples who want to be married but don’t want a traditional ceremony or plan to schedule a traditional ceremony later.
