Ah, New Mexico! Such a wonderful and charming state, when it concerns wedding events we are a little different. In many 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 wed! But, not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they do not. Well let me fix that, they do not really want to. In most counties in New Mexico the Judges are busy, so scheduling time to do wedding events is not a genuine priority. Exactly what will take place is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, typically 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is readily available you can have an in chambers wedding event. Notice the if readily available? Nearly anything can trigger a delay, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, just to be informed the Judge was away on business and could they come back in a week?

If you are from out of town you can not really wait around, and if you are from town do you really want to wait? For civil type of ceremonies we provide three options.
