Perform Marriage Ceremony

More information is coming in daily and the information below is subject to change. We expect all counties will eventually confirm that they will be issuing licenses on January 6th, after the stay is lifted. Be sure to Click Here to stay informed on updates and changes!
----------------------------------------------

* Florida has a 3 day waiting period if either partner is a Florida resident, be sure to see the section on waiving that period on the previous page. Your county clerk office can provide you information on exceptions and special requirements for that county. Also, be sure that the person performing your ceremony is authorized by the State of Florida to solemnize your marriage.

Laura Viau, [email protected], 407-247-9737, 14148 Paradise Tree Drive, Orlando, FL 32828, Notes/Comments: I am an affirming pastor at a local mainline Christian church. We don't host same-gender weddings in our facility at this time, but I am happy to assist in providing ceremonies at other locations, with as much or little Christian content as a couple is seeking. I am also happy to offer pre-wedding counseling for couples with other plans for the ceremony itself. I see these conversations as providing a safe space to talk about those sticky issues that are hard to bring up, no matter how long you have been partnered.

MeLynda Rinker: I am a Notary in Lakeland, FL and January 6th is my birthday. I am wanting to give a gift to the gay community on my birthday and perform gay weddings for free. I will go anywhere in Lakeland to perform a wedding on January 6th. I have been letting people know via my facebook page and also through an interview I did which appeared in the Ledger yesterday. www.theledger.com/arti…/20150102/…/150109908/0/search. A few people have also contacted me to offer support. DeeDee Jones of King's Court Gowns has offered all of her in stock wedding dresses for $99.00. She is also doing a contest for a free wedding gown. Go to www.facebook.com/kingscourtgowns for more information. Realize that a LOT of couples are eager and anxious to get married so don't wait until the last minute. The person who does this site says they are processing them as quickly as they can. I spoke to the Parks people at Lake Mirror and they said that we can perform weddings there but cannot start setting up a bunch of chairs or other items. They did say that I could set up an arch if we have one available. At this point, there is nothing reserved at Lake Mirror for January 6th so even Hollis Gardens is available. If you or someone you know is planning on getting married on January 6th, please contact me at 863-838-1441 to schedule. As I said in the Ledger, I am reserving January 6th only for gay weddings, however, to be non-discriminatory, as many free gay weddings as I perform on the 6th, I am also offering to perform that many straight weddings on another day. Friend me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/melynda.rinker, or call me. 863-838-1441."
