UPDATE, DECEMBER 2020:

We are currently offering Safe Elopements on the Westside of Los Angeles in full compliance with County pandemic restrictions. Service includes confidential marriage licensing and couple-only civil ceremonies for a complete legal marriage. Due to County of Los Angeles Public Health requirements and local zoning laws, all activities must be exclusively outdoors, socially-distanced and masked, with no guests or photographers present. Availability is extremely limited. Please see our Safe Elopements page for more details.

We have a new rate structure to cover costs for safety and sanitation compliance. These rates and policies will be effective for the duration of the pandemic.

Please email for more information. Your health, happiness, and safety are always our main concern.

MarriageToGo: Sweet, Easy, SAFE.

ALL SERVICES WILL BE RENDERED EXCLUSIVELY OUTDOORS. DUE TO GUIDANCE ISSUED BY THE L.A. COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH, FOR YOUR SAFETY WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY OFFERING INDOOR SERVICE, ON-SITE SERVICE, OR SERVICES WITH WITNESSES, GUESTS, OR PHOTOGRAPHERS IN ATTENDANCE.

STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW

Getting legally married has two parts: first you must obtain a marriage license, then you must have it solemnized by a qualified officiant. We offer a Safe Elopement service that includes both licensing and civil marriage ceremony for a complete legal marriage.

We can provide elopements on short notice for an additional fee, though availability very limited. Click here to the requirements for short-notice solemnizations (within 72 hours or less).

We also offer resources for streaming or recording your wedding on your device or ours. Please ask for details.

The L.A. County Clerk's office requires disclosure of license fees: confidential marriage licenses cost $85, public licenses are $91. It is less expensive to obtain your own marriage licenses at a Clerk's office, but many couples prefer the convenience of confidential marriage licensing at the time of their marriage ceremony.

With MarriageToGo, there are no hidden costs. Your fee is finalized up front and you receive a written service agreement detailing precisely what services you'll receive. To keep your financial information safe and secure, we accept payment via PayPal or Google Pay/Google Wallet ONLY. We try to make planning your wedding simple, honest, and secure.

We donate a portion of our income each month to local non-profits as part of our mandate to share the love with our community. Your safe elopement will help others in need during this difficult time.

You can check out our five-star reviews on Yelp to see what our clients have to say, or ask for recent references.
