In the solemnization of marriage, no particular form shall be required, except that the parties shall solemnly declare, in the presence of the person solemnizing the marriage and the attending witnesses, that they take each other as husband and wife; and in every case, there shall be at least 2 witnesses, besides the person solemnizing the marriage, present at the ceremony.
The question is whether "in the presence" includes physical presence or can be virtual presence. Because it does not prohibit virtual presence and via webcam or other device you are witnessing the declaration.
You, the spouses, and witnesses would each have to sign the original certificate, and you mail it back to clerk.
