HOW TO GET MARRIED
GET YOUR LICENSE
You must have a license from the county where the ceremony will take place.
You can apply online or in person, but both of you must be present to pick up the license at the Cook County Clerk's office. The cost is $60.
GET A LOCATION
Decide where you want to get married. It can be a traditional wedding venue, a park, or even a Starbucks! With a Cook County license you can get married in any number of amazing places!
GET AN OFFICIANT
An interfaith minister (me!), religious officiant (cergy), or civil officiant (judge) must perform the ceremony. They then sign and send the completed certificate back to the clerk's office within 10 days to be filed.
Bring your marriage license and yourselves and I will perform your ceremony. Enjoy this special day!
