LA County Marriage Officiant and Marriage License

Marriage License Los Angeles

You need a marriage license before you get married. How do you get a marriage license in Los Angeles? It’s easy. I can do that for you. I am authorized by Los Angeles County to issue a confidential marriage license to you before you get married. And being an L.A. wedding officiant, I can officiate your wedding right afterward.

There are two types of marriage licenses in California: a public record marriage license and a confidential marriage license. To me, the better choice is the confidential marriage license. There are many reasons for this. A California confidential marriage license:

  1. protects your private information from stalkers, identity thieves, telemarketers, the press
  2. protects anyone from knowing that you’re married unless you want them to know. (In order to know, they would have to go to court to get a copy of the marriage license.)
  3. allows an agent, such as myself, to issue your wedding license on-site without you having to wait in the long lines of the Los Angeles Registrar Recorder-County Clerk. I’ll do that for you.

If you don’t want a confidential marriage license (which I don’t understand) then you must go to the County Clerk’s Office to get one yourself. There are many reasons why you don’t want to do that. I’ll explain on another page.

So, give me a call or an email. I can make it easy for you, and that’s what a wedding should be. Easy.
