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.  

The Wedding Minister Officiant Role and responsibility

“Before any of the persons named in s. 741.07 shall solemnize any marriage, he or she shall require of
the parties a marriage license issued according to the requirements of s. 741.01, and within 10 days
after solemnizing the marriage he or she shall make a certificate thereof on the license, and shall
transmit the same to the office of the county court judge or clerk of the circuit court from which it
issued.” Fla. Stat. § 741.08.

So based on the above, we are required to request and hold your original marriage license and after your ceremony we will return it to County Court Office so that your marriage will be recorded.
