Frequently Asked Questions....

Do you perform ceremonies for same-sex couples? Of course! We are happy to perform a same sex commitment ceremony. Your love and commitment for each other is reason enough to celebrate.  

How long of a notice do you need in order to book a ceremony?
Depending on the type of ceremony it could be 2 hours to 6 months. If you are seeking an Elopement Ceremony, please give us at least 2 hours to arrive to your location and prepare ourselves to honor you and your new partner. If you looking to do a Basic Ceremony a minimum of 2 weeks is requested to create your ceremony. A Premium Ceremony  has a request of at least 1 month in order to create that ceremony that you are dreaming of. The Colorado Wedding Ministers do understand that time can just fly by so exceptions can be made in a case by case basis. Many couples book us on an average of 6 to 12 months in advance, so to reserve your date you will have to put down a 50% deposit, guaranteeing your date and services.

How long is the ceremony?
A simple Elopement ceremony can last just 5-15 minutes depending on the choice of wedding/commitment words you choose. The Basic or Premium ceremonies can last a bit longer. It does depend on the wording and the different inclusions that have been added to the ceremony. For instance if you choose the Premium ceremony and have the Rose, Hand and Unity Sand, added to your ceremony it can last around 30 minutes. A simple Unity Candle can last 20 minutes. You can get quite creative in a 20-25 minute ceremony. Most of our ceremonies just last 12 minutes, with just 5-8 minutes to get everyone up and back to the ceremony location. Please let us know if time is a factor and we can adjust the ceremony to fit your needs. 

What do you wear?
Our gentlemen wear subdued suits and ties. If requested they can even wear a robe and stole. Our lady ministers also wear a subdued or black suits or dresses., They can wear a robe and stole if you like. This is your wedding and your choice. Just let us know what you would prefer and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Do you charge for mileage?
No, we don't charge for mileage within a 40 mile radius of Denver. IF you don't know if your ceremony location in with in 40 miles of Denver, just tell us the location and we will check out town listings. If it goes beyond 40 miles of Denver, we do charge $.55 per mile. We do have special mileage rates for the Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Canon City area. Before booking your ceremony you will receive a total price for everything.

Wedding License Information

Fees-
The license is $30.00 or less and can be purchased at any county Clerk and Recorders office. We do recommend that you bring cash as many don't do check or credit card. We recommend that you order 3 copies, one for each of you and a spare. Many work places, insurance companies and government offices will only accept a certified copy.

How do I get a license?
Both you and your fiancé must appear together at the Clerk and Recorders office. If one of you are unable to attend (hospitalization, incarceration, out of state ect.) you then must get an absentee application and have it notarized before coming in for you license.

If you are out of state or pressed for time, you can fill out the license on line and pick it up when it is convenient for you.

And no, in the State of Colorado, you don't need a blood test, and you will receive your license immediately after filling out the form.

What do I need to bring?
You will need to bring government issued ID such as your drivers license, visa, passport, state or military ID.  If you have been divorced or widowed in the last 6 months you will need to bring documentation, if it has been longer just let them know the date.

Other important information-
You also need to use your license within 30-35 days of purchase, and must be filed depending on the county you have 50-65 days to file your license.

A part of our services is to file the license for you so there is one less thing to worry it. There is a late fee if not filed in a timely manner which varies from state to state.

If you perform your ceremony yourselves, and received your copy of your license in the mail, you may not be  married. In the state of Colorado you must be married by a judge, or clergy person to be married.

​That paper that your received from the county and will be returned to you via mail is your license! Please keep it in a safe place and after receiving it you can change your name.
