Ah New Mexcio! Such a wonderful and enchanting state, when it comes to weddings we are a little different. In numerous locations you go to the county court house get your license, ask to see a Judge or Justice of the Peace and Voila you are married! But, not here.

While Judges and other authorities can marry you, they do not. Well let me remedy that, they don't really wish to. In the majority of counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine priority. Exactly what will happen is the clerks will provide to put you on a waiting list, generally 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if readily available? Almost anything can cause a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just to be told the Judge was away on business and could they come back in a week?

Exactly what are folks to do? If you are from out of town you can not truly wait, and if you are from town do you truly wish to wait? We a have a better concept. For civil type of ceremonies we provide three options.
