Customer Question

Does the wedding need to be in the same county that the marriage license was obtained in, or can the ceremony be in a neighboring county of the same state?

Is there some other information I can provide for you in this regard?

I am not sure why you gave a Bad Service on my true and correct answer. I am guessing it was done inadvertently.

And I hope that you will reconsider a correction. When a Bad rating is given it affects my ability to remain a professional on this site and help others


So, unless you have another question in this regard, please reconsider your rating


Thank you and Good luck with your marriage.

The answer was just one sentence, and it was wrong. Now that the weekend is passed, I called the registrar's office, and it is possible to get a license in one California county adn get married in another. I needed the info this weekend and relied on your answer in making my plans. I want my money back. Thank you!
