The appointment typically takes just ten minutes.
It's pretty simple:
Where: Common Grounds Coffeehouse, West Clinton Ave, Oaklyn.
When: Tuesday evening or Saturday morning.
How Much: Tuesday Evening - $150
Saturday Morning - $185
Optional Add-on: Tuesday Witness Service - $80
Saturday Witness Service - $110

Marriage license applications are processed at the Vital Statistics office on the municipal level in New Jersey. South Jersey Officiants will provide the forms and instructions immediately after your appointment has been set. New Jersey residents will apply for their license in their home township. Non-Residents who elect the Sign & Drive package must apply at the Oaklyn Borough Hall.
A $28 fee is paid to the township at the time of your application. When applying, you'll also need to bring one adult witness with you. We're sorry but South Jersey Officiants is not able to assist with the witness needed when you apply, as this witness must be personally known to you.
Ready to book your Lightning Ceremony? Great! Don't forget that there is a 72 hour waiting period for a marriage license in New Jersey. Use the following chart to know when you can pick up your marriage license from the municipal office.
*If your waiting period completes over a weekend, you'll have to wait until Monday to pick-up your license. Vital Statistics is a governmental office that is closed on weekends and holidays.
