Since it is unclear when NYC City Hall will be reopening, I decided to become ordained by the Universal Life Church and register as an officiant with the NYC City Clerk! It is official now and I can preform ceremonies in NYC going forward. (Considering how well I know that form, it is about time!)
I am planning to offer only the most basic ceremony service (like you’d see at City Hall) or just a simple license signing. I don’t want to take away from the beautiful personalized ceremonies my lovely officiant friends provide. I just want to offer a simple option for couples who desire a legal union and also would like some wedding portraits.
I’m going to include this option in all of my elopement collections starting today. As just as with witnessing, there is no additional fee for this. We will need a witness, but it can be a guest or literally anyone with ID.
