Marriages are performed at/from the Clerk/Auditor offices during regular business hours only. (Mon-Fri 9:00 am - 7:00 pm, Sat 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, closed all Federal Holidays, Pioneer Day, Christmas Eve, & Saturdays when a holiday falls on a Friday.)

All Ceremonies:
  • Appointments are given on a first come, first serve basis according the scheduled availability. Click on the "MAKE AN APPOINTMENT" button above to see available dates and times. If a particular date/time slot is not available, then there is either another ceremony already scheduled or that slot has been blocked out for another purpose.
  • Couples must provide their own witnesses (minimum of two) who are at least 18 years of age or older. The county staff are not able to serve as witnesses for a ceremony unless there is an emergency.
  • Any license used for the ceremony must be valid and issued by Utah County OR another county within the State of Utah.

In Office Ceremonies:
  • Due to the limits of our space for in office ceremonies, wedding parties should include 10 PEOPLE OR LESS including the couple and witnesses. Couples will be supplied with a video conferencing link they can give to family/friends that would like to participate in the ceremony above the 10 person maximum limit.
  • The couple may wait to obtain their license until the day of the ceremony.
Video Conferencing Only Ceremonies:
  • The couple is required to get their license before scheduling their ceremony. Due to the limited time per appointment, couples cannot get their license issued at the same time they are getting married.
  • Both the couple and the two witnesses must be able to appear via a live video feed during the ceremony.
  • The Utah County officiant will verify the ID of both applicants and the age and identity of both witnesses via the live video before starting the ceremony.
  • The couple and witnesses do not have to be in the same physical location to participate in the ceremony.
  • Must provide your own witnesses (minimum of two) and they must be over the age of 18.
FOR COUPLES WITH A UTAH COUNTY MARRIAGE LICENSE
After the ceremony, the County officiant will finalize the license through the county officiant portal. The couple will receive their digital certified copy by email and their paper certified copy by mail in 7 to 10 days after the ceremony for mail sent within the continental United States. International and overseas mailing could take longer for delivery. All certified copies are sent via the US Postal Service.

FOR COUPLES WITH A PAPER LICENSE ISSUED BY ANOTHER COUNTY
After the ceremony, both the couple and the witnesses will sign the license in black ink. The license will then need to be returned to the Utah County Marriage License office. The paper license must be signed by the County officiant that performed the ceremony before it can be finalized and a certified copy can be returned to the couple by the county that issued the license.
