Wedding Minister Officiant

Dove Wedding Minister Officiant Services

Solemnizing Marriages
Often times we receive calls informing us that the marriage license needs to be notarized as was told by some county office clerk.
We want to educate you, that the law requires you to exchange your covenant vows to each other.   This is the definition of  "solemnizing
a marriage".   At no time your marriage license can be signed, stamped and dated where you are then considered married without the exchanging of vows.   Couples are required to enter into a covenant marriage.
