Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will you marry couples of different faiths or previously divorced?
A: Yes. Marriage is a divine institution ordained by God for all men and women. I require that you love each other and have a desire to be married. I will not refuse any couple (a man and a woman) the right to be married, regardless of one's past, race, color, religion, or denominational background. I do not encourage divorce, but I do understand things do and can happen in marriages. I count it as a joy to help couples move from their past into a new beginning, that marriage can offer. I believe our God is the God of many chances.
Q: How do we get our marriage license?
A: Contact the County Clerk of any Texas county. Texas marriage licenses are valid in all Texas counties, regardless of the county where the license was issued.

Q: Are you available to perform ceremonies at other times and locations?
A: Yes. We perform ceremonies any time and anywhere. Check our online calendar for availalbility and send us a note on our Contact page giving us your ceremony details and we will respond back confirming availability and pricing.
Q: Do you perform proxy wedding ceremonies?
A: Yes. Active-duty military personnel and incarcerated prisoners often seek marriage by proxy. Before applying for your marriage license, you will need to obtain an ABSENT APPLICATION form from the County Clerk, take it to that person, have them fill it out and have it notarized. Click on the following links for the instructions and the form.
Q: Who files the marriage license after the ceremony?
A: That is your choice. We are happy to take care of it for you at no extra cost to you or you can return it it to the County Clerk's office after we complete the ceremony. Note that the Harris County Clerk's office takes 4 - 8 weeks to process marriage licenses, so if you need immediate proof of marriage, then you should return the license yourself to the County Clerk and request a certified copy of your marriage license.
