Is your ideal wedding one that consists of a small intimate group of people that’s both romantic and sweet? If so, the Beverly Hills Courthouse is a beautiful, intimate, and stress free option! Read on for more details on how to get married at the Beverly Hills Courthouse!
1) We want to tie the knot, what is our first step?
A marriage license!
There are two ways of getting your marriage license-
*Apply during the week to your county’s clerk office before your wedding day
*Do it all together, i.e book a 60 minute appointment on your actual wedding day and you can apply the same day + get married
*Within 90 days of obtaining your marriage license, say “i do” . As long as it’s within state lines, you’re golden.
*A county clerk, priest, rabbi, minister, judge or civil marriage commissioner will make it official by signing the license
*You will need to bring your marriage license back to the county it was issued in so they can record it and make it official! After that, you can request a copy.
2) When can I have my wedding at the courthouse?
Most courthouse ceremonies take place during the week as the government shuts down on the weekend. Currently, due to COVID19, you can have your ceremony done virtually and save professional photos for outside surrounding the amazing Beverly Hills Courthouse grounds.
