Do you need to “Make it Official” despite the ongoing pandemic? California Wedding Officiant can help.

Andrew Allen is currently offering socially/physically distanced civil elopements in the Antioch/Brentwood Area in the San Francisco East Bay Area. All recommended protocols are being followed including wearing a mask.


Marriage License

If you need a Marriage License, the Alameda County Clerk has developed an innovative contact-less method for issuing them.

  1. Complete the AFFIDAVIT OF INABILITY TO APPEAR, and the MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE COPY REQUEST FORM.
  2. Have your signatures on the AFFIDAVIT OF INABILITY TO APPEAR notarized.
  3. Provide the OFFICIANT’S CONTACT INFORMATION and have the officiant sign it.
  4. Submit the completed and notarized application packet along with the payment and other required documents to the Alameda County Clerk via the drop box located outside the office (9:00AM – 4:00PM).
  5. The County Clerk will mail the parcel containing the marriage license directly to the Officiant.
  6. Once the Officiant has received the license, schedule a date and time for the ceremony.

(I have the application packet in a Fillable PDF format and can help you to fill it out and completely and properly.)

Fees

If you already have a marriage license and just want the minimum legal required civil wedding ceremony, the fee is $85.

If you don’t have a license and need help with applying for it, the fee is $165.

If you want an actual ceremony, (religious or non-religious) with quotes, a poem, and vows, etc, the fee is also $165
