Congratulations and thank you for contacting me regarding your upcoming wedding ceremony. I am available to officiate ceremonies within the Commonwealth of Virginia, Sunday through Friday, by appointment.
The first step to getting married in Virginia is obtaining a marriage license through the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office. You do not need to be a resident of the County or even Virginia to obtain a Virginia marriage license. For specific information about the requirement for obtaining a license, contact the Circuit Court Clerk directly. Once you have your license, it remains valid for 60 days.
Marriage ceremonies taking place within my office during my normal business hours are available for a fee of $50. Marriages taking place outside business hours, on Sundays or at a location outside my office (but within the Commonwealth of Virginia) are available for an additional fee.
On the day of the ceremony, you will need to bring the following:
1. Both copies of the marriage license obtained through a Virginia Circuit Court
2. Government-issued identification for both individuals getting married.
3. Rings and/or vows to exchange, if desired
4. Ceremony Fee
Ceremonies typically take 30 minutes. You can request an appointment for a ceremony using the tool below or call my office directly at 703-248-0626.
