Celebrating Religious And Cultural Diversity
Interfaith And Intercultural Marriages

I offer the best service for my customers.

People cannot control it nor their affections toward others. It is a natural connection, often a “click” between two individuals, who despite the imperfections in their partners, accept them for who they are and cherish them for who they are not. Despite the “love conquers all,” strong affliction to religious heritage, social stigmas, and cultural values, makes interfaith marriage ceremonies in Oklahoma prone to heartbreak and guilt.

At Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies, we cherish such soul to soul-connections and honor the courage it takes to love a completely different individual. At the same time, our experienced wedding officiant in Oklahoma and other staff, guide the couple via the premarital counseling in OKC on exploring their religious diversity, heritage, irreconcilable rituals, and events to the pave way for being united and respectful as a couple.

Are you looking for a special minister with a personal, gentle touch to officiate your wedding ceremony?
This is your special day! Let me help you make this wonderful memory last forever!

Each marriage officiant in Oklahoma with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has undergone many years of training and is skilled at helping couples to navigate through any religious or non-religious concerns. 😊

As noted earlier, each wedding officiant in OKC must have some minister’s credentials from an organization like a church, mosque, synagogue, temple, etc., to officiate a courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma.

 

Our wedding officiant in OKC prices depend on what type of service you want, and where it is located. For the Oklahoma City and metro areas, we have listed our prices as follow:

Simple Signing Option

This is the perfect option for couples on a budget, those wanting to keep their marriage a secret, and/or for those in a time crunch who just want their marriage license signed and official.

Courthouse Wedding Ceremony Package

The courthouse wedding in OKC package is perfect for couples on a budget but who want a marriage ceremony with the signing of their license. The wedding officiant in OKC from Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can easily arrange a date and time to meet them at the courthouse Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. For $100 more in cash/money order/cashier’s check or $105 with a debit/credit card, Venmo or Cash App, a couple may add a wedding rehearsal to this package. 😊

Elopement Ceremony Package

This elopement ceremony package is meant to be for smaller, quicker weddings, but at a different location than the courthouse and/or outside of the courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City package. It offers increased flexibility, affordability, and durability. The wedding officiant in Oklahoma can also help take some pictures and/or a little video from her/his/their cell phone, if desired. 😊

Wedding Ceremony Package

This is a grand package for couples who need more assistance with their wedding, and the cost really is not much more than the elopement ceremony package. This package comes with more wedding officiant in OKC-to-couple interaction, wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City vow personalization, free/optional premarital counseling to help shave $45 off the cost of your wedding license in OKC, and one (1) free/optional wedding ceremony enhancement as added bonuses. The wedding officiant in Oklahoma can also help take some pictures or a vide from her/his/their cell phone, if desired.

Wedding Ceremony Plus Rehearsal Package

This package provides everything that the wedding ceremony package does, and it also adds the preparation, planning and practice of a wedding rehearsal before the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma itself. This package selection is especially helpful for couples with larger, more involved wedding ceremonies with lots of intricate details and plenty of guests. Practicing beforehand can help a wedding ceremony in OKC go a whole lot smoother, as it eases out the rough edges before the big day. 😊

Special Note on all Signing/Elopement/Wedding Ceremony Packages:

To cut down on costs, Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies charges a five (5) percent debit/credit/Venmo/Cash App fee on all services. Our wedding officiant in Oklahoma will also apply mileage fees to ceremonies outside of the OKC metro area, because gas prices are so high. All prices listed on this website are subject to change at any time, so please inquire about current pricing in advance with your wedding officiant in OKC.

I have never been married before and need some assistance with knowing where to sit, stand, etc., on the day of my wedding ceremony.

Otherwise, for larger wedding ceremonies in Oklahoma a wedding planner in OKC might prove to be most helpful.

Yes, indeed Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies does offer exclusive discounts for a wide variety of couples, and we have placed them all over the Internet – if you know where to look! 😊Some of these discounts up to twenty-five (25) percent on the services of a wedding officiant in OKC include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • LGBTQIA+ Couples
  • Veterans – Prior or Current Service w/ID
  • All Visitors to Certain Websites
  • And more! 😊

We have a wedding officiant in Oklahoma that will cover every area of Oklahoma. We do not always have a wedding minister in Oklahoma located right in your specific town. Therefore, larger towns are often cheaper than smaller towns way out in remote, boondock areas where it will require a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City or elsewhere extensive travel and mileage to get there.

 

No, no wedding couple in Oklahoma must have a religious courthouse wedding ceremony in OKC by a wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies. Indeed, many of our wedding couples are younger, agnostic, atheist, interfaith, or are LGBTQIA+ and have gotten incredibly disaffected with organized religion and its outright hatred that many such religious institutions spew forth.

 

Of course, for those who want a religious courthouse wedding ceremony in OKC, we have plenty a wedding minister in OKC who is more than happy to accommodate your every need. Whether you are seeking a religious courthouse wedding ceremony in OKC or a non-religious wedding ceremony in Oklahoma, our wedding minister in OKC will gladly help you get married in Oklahoma. 

Of course! Whether you are wanting an interfaith wedding ceremony in OKC, a religious wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City, or a non-religious/atheist wedding ceremony in OKC, your wedding minister in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will be more than happy to accommodate you. Each marriage officiant in Oklahoma with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has undergone many years of training and is skilled at helping couples to navigate through any religious or non-religious concerns. 😊

 

Sure! Many a wedding minister in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has officiated plenty of marriage ceremonies in Oklahoma prisons. We will collaborate collaboratively with you and the prison chaplain to follow all procedures and protocols needed to help you and your future spouse get married in Oklahoma.

Step 1:

You and your spouse decide to get married to each other.

Step 2:

Contact the chaplain at the prison you want to get married at. Prison chaplains no longer officiate wedding ceremonies in Oklahoma, so you will want to start the process as far in advance as possible with your wedding officiant in Oklahoma. Also, prisons usually allow for weddings once every spring and fall. If you are planning your wedding ceremony for the spring, then you should be starting the process the summer or fall before that then.

Step 3:

Find your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies to travel to your location for your wedding ceremony in Oklahoma. With enough advance notice, many a wedding minister in Oklahoma can travel to your location throughout the State of Oklahoma for your wedding ceremony in OKC.

Step 4:

Have your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies fill out the marriage form the prison chaplain will give you. The wedding minister in Edmond OK will have to list her/his/their contact information and minister’s credentials number.

Step 5:

The prison chaplain does the appropriate background checks on everyone, and then she/he/they either approve or deny the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma.

Step 6:

If the prison chaplain grants her/his/their approval, then you and your future spouse can move forward with getting your wedding license in OKC with the courthouse where the prison is located.

Step 7:

Please be sure you and your future spouse get your wedding license in Oklahoma beforehand, in accordance with the prison’s procedures. The prison chaplain in Oklahoma can easily walk you through that step, as can the court clerk in that jurisdiction. Your wedding officiant in Oklahoma does not issue your wedding license, so be sure to bring it with you and to get it beforehand.

Step 8:

On the day designated for your prison wedding ceremony, you and the wedding minister in Oklahoma City will both need to show up to the prison at the proper time. Be sure to bring your photo ID from the state or federal government, and do not bring any weapons or contraband. Otherwise, they will not allow either one of you inside and/or will cancel the wedding ceremony.

Step 9:

After the wedding ceremony in OKC, please make sure to return the marriage license in Oklahoma to the court clerk that issued it.

Step 10:

Please always be good to each other! Life is so incredibly short!!!

To get your marriage license in Oklahoma, you and your future spouse must travel to the court clerk’s office and get your marriage license together. Your wedding officiant in OKC may not get your marriage license for you, nor is/are he/she/they allowed to store the original marriage license in Oklahoma for you, in place of the court clerk.

 

However, a couple seeking to get married in Oklahoma may go to courthouses in multiple states, if they wish to get married by a licensed wedding minister in OKC. If that state recognizes the reciprocity of the Oklahoma wedding minister, then the couple can simply get the license in a state like Kansas and take it to our wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies to get married. 😊

If you want to be legally married with a marriage license in Oklahoma by a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City, then yes, you will need to get a marriage license in Oklahoma City prior to having your wedding officiant in OKC officiate your courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma. However, some couples getting married in Oklahoma opt not to get a marriage license in Oklahoma.

Some wedding couples opt to get married through a common law marriage (CLM) in Oklahoma or Kansas, rather than via an official marriage license. When both members of the couple officially present themselves to others as married spouses and live as such, they are considered to have engaged in a common law marriage. The couple can – and should – fill out some paperwork which they can then file in when they file it with the court clerk. An example of this can be found here or hereOf course, there are also many other affidavits of common law marriage forms out there on the Internet as well.

A prenuptial agreement, which spells out very clearly things like alimony, assets, etc., is not a requirement to getting married. However, some couples prefer to have a prenuptial agreement in place prior to getting married in Oklahoma, as it can often cut down on disputes and legal battles later if a couple ever ends up splitting up.

No, under no circumstances does a wedding officiant in Oklahoma ever issue a marriage license. You can get your wedding license in Oklahoma from any court clerk’s office in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, California, or any other state or jurisdiction that allows for reciprocity with its marriage licenses for ministers in other states.

Your wedding officiant in Oklahoma cannot and will not obtain your marriage license for you. Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies and your wedding minister in Oklahoma City also do not store copies of your marriage license. The court clerk you get it from will keep all records of those in case you ever need copies at a later point in time.

Typically, a spouse who is here from another country on a fiancée/fiancée or travel visa will need to show his/her/their passport and visa, at the time you are both applying for your marriage license in Oklahoma. Some court clerks may require an officially translated, certified copy of the foreigner’s birth certificate, before issuing the marriage license in OKC for the OKC courthouse wedding ceremony.

We have also had wedding couples in Oklahoma where it turned out one or both persons were residing in the USA illegally. Those couples had more difficulty getting a married, because many of the court clerks would not issue their marriage licenses to them. However, some of them eventually found a court clerk who did not ask for proof of citizenship or residency in a smaller court clerk somewhere in Oklahoma or another state, and they used that instead for their marriage ceremony in OKC with a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City from Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies.

Yes, provided as the state you are bringing you marriage license from accepts the signature of a licensed wedding minister in Oklahoma, then you may bring your marriage license from another state to Oklahoma. Some of the states which have ministerial reciprocity include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Arkansas
  • Texas
  • California
  • Kansas
  • Nebraska
  • Numerous Others! 😊

You can go to any courthouse in OKC or elsewhere in Oklahoma to get your marriage license. As noted above, you can also bring your marriage license into Oklahoma from plenty of other states. However, for those wishing to obtain their marriage license from a courthouse in Oklahoma City or the metro, the following is a concise list of some of the most accessible local area court clerks:

Note: Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies highly recommends the Edmond, OK location above, for persons seeking marriage licenses from Oklahoma County, because they have no payment required for parking/no parking police, no metal detectors/security checkpoint, etc. Their waiting lines are often much shorter than the downtown Oklahoma City location.

If you recently got divorced, then you must wait at least six (6) months before getting married again. This waiting period is good and healthy, because a couple should not jump right off into another marriage too quickly. Couples should take marriage seriously, which is what each wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong does when officiating your courthouse marriage ceremony in Oklahoma.

 

Each wedding officiant in Oklahoma with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies believes that it is important for a couple to take the proper amount of time to get to truly know one another. Love does indeed take time to grow, while infatuation or sexual lust alone can happen overnight. Thus, Oklahoma has a minimum of six (6) months of waiting, before someone who was recently divorced can get remarried within Oklahoma. However, for wedding couples in OKC who just cannot wait for that time amount for whatever reason, there are, of course, ways to get around it.

Some states like Kansas have absolutely no waiting period, if you are seeking to get a marriage license right after you divorce. Sometimes this could come in handy, if one or both persons in the couple have been apart from their former spouse for many years but the separation and divorce process took many years to complete.

Whatever the case, if you wish to get married in OKC by a wedding officiant in Oklahoma and do not want to wait exceptionally long, please just travel to Kansas or another state that has no waiting period and then bring your marriage license to a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies. A wedding minister in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can help you solemnize your marriage ceremony in Oklahoma without a waiting period. 😊

Of course! Whether you are wanting an interfaith wedding ceremony in OKC, a religious wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City, or a non-religious/atheist wedding ceremony in OKC, your wedding minister in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will be more than happy to accommodate you. Each marriage officiant in Oklahoma with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has undergone many years of training and is skilled at helping couples to navigate through any religious or non-religious concerns. 😊

No, the Oklahoma County Court Clerk, among many others, ceased officiating courthouse wedding ceremonies in Oklahoma City for couples in 2007. Prisons in Oklahoma also require couples seeking to get married there to find their own wedding officiant in OKC, if they want to get married. A prison chaplain may not marry any couples anymore. Why is a wedding minister in Edmond, OK an official requirement?

Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies believes that judges and justices of the peace in OKC with the county court clerks and chaplains in Oklahoma prions stopped officiating marriages in 2007, because they did not want to find themselves “forced” to marry all couples – including LGBTQIA+ ones. Thus, couples wanting to get married in OKC must therefore find a wedding officiant in OKC to help them get married.

This may or may not be the case, but then again this is Oklahoma and anyone reading this knows this state can be backwards in quite a few ways of its thinking. No worries either way. Just call a wedding minister in Oklahoma City OK with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies now, and you will have nothing to worry about later about your courthouse wedding ceremony in OKC. 

All couples seeking to have a courthouse marriage ceremony in OKC performed by a wedding minister in Oklahoma by Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies must bring at least two (2) adult witnesses with them. These two (2) adults witnesses must be present at the time of the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City, as they must also sign off on the marriage license.

 

In the event a couple is new to town, wants to keep their marriage secret, or perhaps neither person has many friends ☹, then our wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can certainly help provide witnesses for a small extra fee. Please just be sure to inform our wedding officiant in Edmond, OK when you first book your wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City, OK. Our licensed marriage officiant in OKC will make sure you have all the witnesses you need for your extra special courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City occasion.

No, rings are always helpful but are never a requirement for a courthouse marriage ceremony in Oklahoma City. Some couples cannot afford them, and others may simply not want to wear a ring. Indeed, a couple seeking a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies may indeed have something else (i.e., tattoos) that they use in place of wedding rings for their courthouse wedding ceremony in OKC.

 

Whatever the case, this courthouse marriage ceremony in Oklahoma is all about you – the couple that is getting married. Each wedding minister in Oklahoma with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies wants to make your extra special occasion even more beautiful and delightful in every conceivable way. Please call your wedding minister in OKC today at (405) 696-6450, so we can help you both live happily ever after.

Of course! Your wedding minister in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will always ask you if you both prefer the “traditional” vows or prefer to write your own. If you have never attended a wedding ceremony in OKC, the “traditional” vows consist of many of the same things you have seen on television. If you have indeed previously attended an OKC courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City before, then they are fairly like something you have heard before. The wedding officiant in Oklahoma can provide these to both persons upon request, but he/she/they prefer not to ruin the surprise. 😊

However, if you wish to write your own wedding vows for your marriage ceremony in OKC, that is simply fine, too. Please feel free to write whatever vows you want to say to each other however you wish. Some couples keep it all inside of their heads or speak spontaneously, while others write it on papers, save it on cell phones, or have special cards or scrolls upon which they write their personalized wedding vows.

Whatever your preference, the decision of what vows you will say is completely up to you. Please rest assured that your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City merely wants you both to be extra happy, so your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will collaborate with you to make your extra special day simply perfect! 😊

Unfortunately, no, premarital counseling is not required for any couple in Oklahoma seeking to get married via a wedding officiant in OKC or a wedding minister in Oklahoma City. However, premarital counseling in Oklahoma City with a wedding officiant in Oklahoma can always help a couple decide if getting married to their future spouse is the right decision. Why is this so important?

Many a wedding minister in Oklahoma City has sadly witnessed too many overeager, overexcited couples know each other for a month or two – sometimes a week or two – and then make a rash decision to want to get married in OKC with a marriage officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies. Other couples are somehow incredibly mismatched, and it appears obvious to everyone buy the two people in the couple itself. Sadly, none of these marriages ever really last long. ☹

Premarital counseling in Oklahoma City with a wedding minister in Oklahoma from Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies is meant to be very relaxed. We can do the premarital counseling in OKC at almost any location – our office, your home, our residence, or even at a restaurant. 😊 It is certainly not meant to be a “hot seat” or “20 questions” scenario, and everything you and your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City discuss is completely confidential.

In the end, the decision to get married or not after the premarital counseling in Oklahoma with your wedding minister in Edmond, OK is completely up to you. Much like snowflakes from falling snow, two marriages are ever alike, and in the end a successful marriage depends on both spouses to make it work successfully and happily.

Very rarely will the wedding minister in OKC ever tell a couple that the two people should not get married at all, and even then, it is almost never said unless the wedding officiant in OKC has also been hired to perform premarital counseling with the couple. However, if your wedding officiant in Oklahoma ever does say that to you, please take it as advice well given and ponder reconsidering your decision to have a courthouse wedding ceremony in Edmond, Oklahoma, before it is too late.

No, the State of Oklahoma no longer requires testing for sexually transmitted diseases as a prerequisite to getting your marriage license in Oklahoma. Nowadays, many couples do not get married for the first time until they are in their 20s, 30s, or even 40s. Society often asks too much of people nowadays, that it simply did not require as much of earlier: More educational attainment – and expense, housing, cars, job security and so much more.

In addition, many couples find their adolescence extended well into their 20s or 30s, with some adult children moving back in with their parents even in their 40s. Thus, the State of Oklahoma now typically assumes that most couples have already had sexual intercourse at least once, and often many, many times. Therefore, if one person had a sexually transmitted disease, then now it makes sense that both individuals probably already have it.

At Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies, many a wedding officiant in OKC who has ever conducted premarital counseling with a couple can attest that very, very few of them have not already had sexual intercourse prior to getting married. Indeed, a wedding officiant in Oklahoma with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will tell you that it is often healthy for a couple that is about to get married to have sex, prior to doing so. Why is this?

Would you buy a car without taking it out for a test drive? No? Then why would you marry someone, without first finding out if you two are sexually compatible? This is especially true in a closed relationship, which most marriages are. In a sense, any wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can tell a couple that every marriage is a same-sex marriage, because after a while it is the same sex every single time! So, while having lots of premarital sex may not be the best thing to slow the spread of sexually transmitted diseases in potential newlywed couples, it does have its uses and can also be a lot of fun. 😊

Yes, no matter where you live in Oklahoma, if you need a wedding venue recommendation our wedding officiant in Oklahoma City can proffer a suggestion or two for you of some truly beautiful locations. Each wedding officiant in Oklahoma can make these recommendations, because she/he/they has/has been officiating wedding ceremonies throughout the State of Oklahoma for so many years.

Two of the personal favourite wedding ceremony locations of many of our licensed wedding ministers in OKC include sunset weddings at the Lake Hefner Lighthouse and the Will Rogers Gardens Wedding Ceremonies VenueBoth locations are gorgeous with tons of natural beauty, and you can use both areas free of charge because they are open to the public. The Will Rogers Gardens Wedding Ceremonies Venue also has a private area that is like a big greenhouse that wedding couples in OKC can rent for a small, nominal fee. Either way, you cannot go wrong with either location! If neither of those work for you, please try the venue suggestions listed here.😊

No worries! We have seen this happen many times before. Firstly, if you bought the “if rains on your wedding day” ring insurance, you might be ecstatic, because that means your wedding rings are FREE! Excellent choice in thinking ahead! 😊

 

In terms of the wedding venue itself, Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can often proffer the complimentary use of its office or a residence of the wedding officiant in Oklahoma City who is officiating your religious wedding ceremony in OKC or non-religious wedding ceremony in Oklahoma if you have a smaller wedding scheduled. Otherwise, Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can move the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma to a residence of your choice in the metro, or the wedding officiant in OKC can always collaborate with you to reschedule your date and time to another available time and day for your wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City.

Please remember that, just like in everyday life, things do not always go exactly as planned during wedding ceremonies in OKC. Please do not let the trivial things destroy your big day! We have seen some couples get so downtrodden, because the food was not perfect or some of the guests did not show up. No worries! Life is beautiful, so please just enjoy the moment and go with the flow. 😊

In some limited circumstances, Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies may have a wedding minister in OKC to officiate your courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma who can speak more than one language. Please contact a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies, so you can discuss your linguistic needs.

If there is no bilingual or trilingual wedding officiant in Oklahoma available to meet the required language needs of your courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City, then you may always bring your own interpreter to interpret the wedding ceremony in OKC after the wedding minister in Edmond, OK finishes every sentence or two. Every wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has made this accommodation many a time over the years, and we will certainly collaborate with you as well to make your wedding ceremony the special event you always wanted. 😊

Wedding couples getting married in OKC with a licensed wedding minister in Oklahoma City may wear whatever they wish to their wedding. Their guests may likewise do the same. Each wedding officiant in Oklahoma City has dressed for all types of occasions at the request of our wedding clients, from casual T-shirts and jeans to formal clothing to country style Western wear. If available, we can even try to match our clothing colours with those of the bride and groom, groom and groom, bride and bride, or any non-binary spouses.

 

A wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies is more likely to be very experienced and well-suited to your courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma. With affordable rates, exceptional availability, significant contact, and a very open-minded, accepting, caring staff, our wedding officiant in Oklahoma City should help meet all your needs. 😊

Many a wedding minister in Oklahoma will charge quite a bit more than a wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies. When you want to contact them, they never respond. And what if you are LGBTQIA+? Many of those hateful, super conservative wedding officiants in Oklahoma will refuse to marry you. Why risk it? Contact a wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies today and put all your fears at ease. 🙂

Of course! Why wouldn’t we? Sadly, however, many of our LGBTQIA+ wedding clients have asked many a wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies this question quite a bit. Therefore, we have had many a wedding minister in OKC like Dr. Makayla Saramosing need to travel to the remotest locations throughout Oklahoma, just to marry people in some of the smallest, most bigoted towns where not one single wedding “minister” in Oklahoma there will help same sex/LGBTQIA+ couples. ☹

Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has a very open, loving, affirming, kind, and progressive LGBTQIA+/Transgender Policy that each and every single wedding minister in OKC and other Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies staff strictly adheres to. Your sexuality and gender, no matter what they are, are things every wedding officiant in Oklahoma Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will value and respect.

To book your date and time in for a wedding minister in Oklahoma City to come officiate your courthouse wedding ceremony in OKC, you will need to make your payment in full and provide your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City the following information:

  • The full legal and preferred names of each future spouse
  • The date, time and venue preferred
  • Whether the couple wants traditional vows or prefers to write their own
  • Whether or not the couple will be exchanging rings
  • If the couple wishes for the minister to take pictures and/or a little video of the wedding with her/his/their cell phone
  • If anyone is going to be giving either spouse – or both! – away
  • If a wedding ceremony rehearsal in OKC is desired
  • If the couple wants a religious or non-religious wedding ceremony
  • If there is any special theme to the wedding, such as an “Elvis” or “Star Wars” theme
  • If the couple is needing the premarital counseling in Oklahoma City (can be done anywhere), prior to getting married
  • If the couple desires videography and/or photography and/or LGBTQIA+ wedding photography/videography ideas from Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies
  • If the couple wishes to have any wedding ceremony enhancements, such as a unity candle ceremony, a unity wine ceremony, a unity sand ceremony, handfasting, etc.
  • Pronouns of each person
  • Languages spoken/needed/linguistic accommodations
  • Payment information for the services selected

Yes, your wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will require you to pay your entire fee for services upfront for your courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma. When you pay your fee, we reserve your special date and time just for you and do not give it or even offer it to anyone else. In doing so, we must decline other weddings in OKC for equally deserving couples, and thus we have passed over the money and opportunity for other work.

Sadly, far too many a wedding officiant in Edmond, OK with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has had far too many clients in past years not even bother to show up to an OKC courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma they have booked, if they do not make the payment upfront. Indeed, even some couples who do pay for their wedding minister in OKC services in advance and say they are en-route to the courthouse wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City have also failed to arrive at all – they did not even our wedding officiant in Oklahoma City a text message, make a phone call or send an email.

Your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can always try to collaborate with you to accommodate any special themes for your wedding that you may have. Some of these in the past have included, but were not limited to, Star Wars weddings, beach weddings, Elvis weddings, swimsuit/pool wedding ceremonies in Oklahoma, and so much more. If you have a special need or request for your wedding officiant in OKC, just ask! 😊

 

Depending on which wedding ceremony package you choose, your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City, OK will ask you to provide some or all the following information to get your wedding ceremony in Oklahoma fully booked in:

  • The full legal and preferred names of each future spouse
  • The date, time and venue preferred
  • Whether the couple wants traditional vows or prefers to write their own

Your wedding officiant in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies will never, ever require a tip. However, good goes around, and it is best to treat others how you want to be others to treat you. If your wedding start time ran late, if you had some especially difficult requests your wedding officiant in OKC did an especially noteworthy job of fulfilling, your courthouse wedding in OKC date fell on or near a holiday, or some family members or friends of yours were rude, then a tip certainly would not hurt. Each wedding minister in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies is a person/human being, too, and many have families they are raising and caring for.

 

Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies has had some limited circumstances with military members where their base commander refused to let them travel off the base past a certain number of miles to attend the wedding ceremonies or any other events, due to Covid-19 restrictions. In cases like that, we may also provide full refunds as a courtesy to the military families we serve.

Other than that, our wedding officiant in OKC usually does not grant a refund, because we must reserve your date and time slot for someone else we could have otherwise booked in. Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies books up its dates super quickly, as we have a high demand.

If you need to move your date and time, our wedding officiant in Oklahoma will often try to collaborate with you on changing the date once or twice to accommodate your needs. Otherwise, please understand why we cannot afford to offer refunds under any circumstances otherwise.

Sadly, we have seen this happen before – but thankfully only once. The groom was getting married, but his future wife decided she did not want to get married and did not even tell him. Fortunately, the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma they had planned was incredibly small, so it was not as big of an inconvenience to everyone; the costs were not so much.

In cases where this unfortunate event happens, our wedding officiant in OKC will try to console the bride or groom as best he/she/they can. One thing we always tell each future bride, groom, or non-binary future spouse, to whom this happens: At least the person knows how the other person feels now, before the couple got legally married and has children, etc. It may hurt, but the process is a whole lot easier now than if it happened after the marriage was official and the two had conceived kids – if conceiving kids had been possible, of course.

A wedding minister in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies almost experienced this firsthand back in Guthrie in 2016. The mother of the bride tried to get the father of the bride to object to the wedding ceremony, but he refused to do so and the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma proceeded. Then the mother of the bride got intoxicated after the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma and fell over drunk.

Situations like this are extremely uncommon, and this is so because we always ask the couples to try to address any objections family members or friends may have, before the marriage ceremony in OKC ever begins. However, if someone ever does object during a wedding ceremony in OKC with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies, the couple can decide if they wish to pause the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma to address the matter privately with the objecting party, or if they wish to simply continue with the ceremony despite the objections.

Good question! Fortunately, where you have questions about your wedding license in OKC, our wedding officiant in Oklahoma has answers. 😊 Once the marriage officiant in OKC completes your wedding ceremony in Oklahoma, one or both of you may either bring your signed marriage license back up to the court clerk you got it from, or you may mail it back in the postage-paid return envelope the court clerk should have given you when you first got your license.

 

The very bottom portion indicates the date the couple turned the marriage license back into the court clerk for formal registration of the completion of their courthouse marriage ceremony in Oklahoma. The wedding minister in OKC does not perform any action on the bottom portion.

 

Some couples will find they have a need for certified copies of their marriage license in Oklahoma, once their wedding minister in OKC completes their wedding ceremony in Oklahoma. Some of these many reasons are as follow:

  • Immigrations visas, etc.
  • Name changes (i.e., driver’s license, passport, credit/debit cards, social security cards)
  • Health insurance coverage
  • Military spouse dependents verification
  • Much more! 😊

The certified copies only cost a couple of dollars each in Oklahoma, and you can usually obtain them the same day you file in your marriage license in OKC.

Yes, depending on your income and tax bracket status, getting married and conceiving children may indeed have significant tax advantages for the couple. Likewise, many car insurance companies provide an additional discount to married drivers, because married drivers statistically have fewer auto accidents. Likewise, many car and home insurance carriers offer multicar discounts and discounts for combining home and auto policies together. 😊
