Yes, getting married online is legal – thanks to changes in the law during the COVID-19 pandemic. A promise to “bring the Clerk’s office into the 21st century”, the Utah County Marriage License Office began a year-long effort to create a completely digital end-to-end legal marriage process. Beginning in 2020, couples were given the ability to get legally married online – form receiving a marriage license, having the wedding ceremony, and having the officiant submit information for the marriage certificate completely over the web. This streamlined process became invaluable as the world responded to COVID-19. Since then, thousands of couples have obtained marriage licenses and been legally married despite challenges posed by distance, office closures, and travel restrictions.
You’ll complete the entire process online. It’s easy, paper-free & usually only takes 2 days to get your legal, US marriage certificate. You’ll get married via webcam—from the comfort of your own home (or anywhere you like that has a stable internet connection!). The actual ceremony should take less than fifteen minutes. Within 24 hours of your online ceremony, you’ll receive a digital copy of your US marriage certificate, and a paper copy will be mailed to you within the next few business days.
The following is required for your VirtualMarriage:
- Couple both must be over 18+ years old
- 2 witnesses are legally required (over 18+ years old)
We can confirm that YES:
- Yes, you and your spouse can join the Zoom ceremony while located in different states and/or countries.
- Yes, you can get married from any country in the world.
- Yes, you can be a citizen of any country in the world.
After your ceremony, your licensed officiant will finalize your license & your legal US marriage will be recorded in the Utah courts – recognized in all 50 U.S. states. You’ll be emailed a copy of your marriage certificate & a physical copy will ship within 2 weeks. Additionally you can get an Apostille from us to get your marriage certificate legally recognized in over 123+ countries. After you pay for your wedding, you’ll have an option to purchase the Apostille option.
