We will provide directions to the town hall to pick up the license, which can be done any weekday during business hours. It is about a 45 minute drive from the resort.

  2. By a clergyman licensed to perform the ceremony. There is no time or location restriction on when or where the ceremony can be performed. There is a fee for the service.

The preceding legal information is provided as a guideline reference only. Check with the State, County and/or Municipality of your wedding site for more detailed and current information. Check with your home state about its requirements for a blood test, license, and other documents. A marriage license from your home state may not be valid for a ceremony performed in another state, territory or country. A marriage performed in another state, like Ontario, may not be recognized by your home state, unless specific requirements are met. You are not required to take a blood test in Ontario to obtain a license.
