FIRST OBTAIN A MARRIAGE LICENSE
Florida is one of only three states (the other two are South Carolina and Maine) who authorize their notaries public to "solemnize the rites of matrimony."  Therefore, I may perform your marriage ceremony providing that you as a couple first obtain a marriage license from an authorized Florida official and I may only perform such ceremony within the geographical boundaries of Florida.
 
Once you have your marriage license, please contact me to schedule the day and time that you would like the ceremony to take place.   

 

Online Marriage License Pre-Application

This link connects to the Brevard County Clerk of Courts’ marriage license pre-application template.  This template allows couples to electronically submit their vital information in advance to expedite the marriage license application process.  Couples must fill in each field on the template and then click on the “Submit” button. 

 

A congratulatory message will display and indicate the couples’ application number.  The couple should make note of this number at this time and click on the “Finish” button to complete the process.  The information is immediately submitted electronically to the Brevard County Clerk. 

 

At any time after the couple has submitted their vital information via the template, the couple can come into any of the Brevard County Clerk of Courts’ five branch offices to complete the application process.  All parties must be present with a picture identification card, the on-line pre-application number, and the applicable marriage license fee to complete the process.
