Ah, New Mexico! Such an enchanting and fantastic state, when it concerns wedding events we are a little different. In many places 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! Not here.

While Judges and other officials can marry you, they don't. Well let me fix that, they do not truly wish to. In a lot of counties in New Mexico the Judges are hectic, so scheduling time to do weddings is not a genuine concern. Exactly what will happen is the clerks will offer to put you on a waiting list, typically 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, if a Judge is available you can have an in chambers wedding. Notice the if available? Almost anything can trigger a hold-up, we had one couple who waited the 8 weeks, only to be told the Judge was away on business and could they come back in a week?

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