want to be married and want the simplest, quickest way possible in
Connecticut, all you need is a
marriage license and an
appointment. There are a few requirements for the
ceremony- you both have to agree to be
married- but that can be done very quickly and
simply. You don't need witnesses. There are no
waiting period, blood test, or residency requirements. You aren't required to say anything except "I do!" Just let us know
what's comfortable for you. Dress up or come casual.
Much more romantic and fun than an elopement at city hall. Your wedding- your

Connecticut? Not a problem.
Connecticut is a great place for a destination
wedding! We have happy couples traveling to us from New York, New
Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania- even
as far away as Texas and Missouri!
They often tell us it is much simpler- and sometimes cheaper- to
come here. Some city halls have long waits, some
states require a waiting period. Connecticut law
allow you to get your license and get married all in the
same day- no need to wait. Connecticut law does
not require residency, blood
tests or witnesses. CT elopements- short and sweet!
