Where do you perform weddings?


Mostly in Central Pennsylvania. We have also done weddings in Maryland and West Virginia, although we rarely travel that far. It would make our fee non competitive.




Who will write our wedding ceremony?


You! With our help of course. We want to know your beliefs and wishes long before we sit down to write. We will draft a ceremony and give you and your soon-to-be spouse time to review and request changes. We can also provide some sample readings, from scripture to poetry to song lyrics and then some. We would also love to help you write your own vows (Minister Steve says the best vows always come from the couple!)




Will you perform a Civil (non-religious) ceremony for us?


Of course!




Same Sex wedding?


Of course!




Where do I obtain a marriage license in Pennsylvania?


You can obtain a marriage license in any of the 67 counties. It does not have to be in the county you reside or where you plan to marry. Some counties currently accept the applications online. If you live outside of Pennsylvania, the same rules apply. This web page will give you a list of all the counties:

How long does it take to obtain a marriage license?


Not long. However there is a 3-day waiting period after the application is accepted. A marriage license is good for 60 days. I recommend you apply for the license about 30-40 days from your planned date of matrimony. This way, if you need to reschedule for some reason, you might not need to get another license.




Who signs the completed license?


Your wedding officiant will sign the license after he/she performs the ceremony. There are 3 parts to a Pennsylvania wedding license. One part is for the officiant's records. One part will be signed, dated and returned to the county the license was issued. The 3rd part will be given to the newly married couple. This license is mostly a keepsake. It may be sufficient as proof of marriage to add someone to your health insurance at work. It cannot be used to update a name change, such as a driver's license or Social Security card. When the county receives the signed duplicate license, they will mail a certified copy of the marriage license to the couple.




Do I need to hold a rehearsal?


Generally speaking, if you have more than 2 other people in your wedding party, we recommend doing a rehearsal, typically the day before the wedding. It will give the officiant an opportunity to informally perform the ceremony, showing everyone where to stand, when to walk, when to say 'I do!'.
