  • How to Get a Marriage License
    ***WE DO NOT ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSE*** MARION COUNTY RESIDENTS: To be legally married, a couple must first obtain a marriage license. To obtain a marriage license, you must first complete an online marriage license application (, complete your appointment in the office or virtually, and then have an Officiant sign your marriage license. For us to sign your marriage license, you must bring a valid marriage license from the State of Indiana and photo identification. NON-MARION COUNTY RESIDENTS: For Indiana residents, the marriage license must be obtained in the county in which one of the applicants reside, and the ceremony can take place anywhere in Indiana. Out-of-state visitors planning to marry in Marion County must apply for their license in the Marion County Clerk’s Office ( A marriage license is valid for 60 days from the date it is issued, and couples may be married as early as the same day. Couples who do not marry within the 60 days must apply for a new license before marrying and pay the filing fee again. You have 30 days after your wedding day to return your marriage license to make it legal. For the most updated information, please visit

    When you are ready to reserve your date with a payment, go to the bottom of the website and click "Book Now." This link will take you to an order form to fill out. Once we verify that an officiant (optional) and your date is available, we will send an invoice via PayPal. You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay your invoice. After clicking "Pay Now," stroll down and click "Pay with Debit or Credit Card." You are official on the calendar once payment is received. You will receive a follow up call a week before your ceremony, if you book our Emerald or Diamond package.

    RUBY PACKAGE: Payments for the “Ruby” package (including all add-ons) are NON-REFUNDABLE and are due at the time of booking. Once payment is paid, you are official on the calendar. EMERALD OR DIAMOND PACKAGE: If your ceremony date is within the next 28 days, then the full amount is due at the time of booking. To reserve your date and time for the “Emerald” or “Diamond” packages, there is a NON-REFUNDABLE security deposit of 50% of your invoice that is due at the time of booking.

  • Officiant/Vows
    We offer beautifully pre-written wedding vows that includes; an intro, declaration, vow exchange ("repeat after me"), ring exchange, and pronouncement. You have the option to say your own personal vows to one another and the option to have a civil (non-religious) or religious ceremony. For the "Emerald" and "Diamond" package, you can also add an additional ceremony, such as, a unity candle or sand ceremony. Keep in mind that a typical ceremony is about 10-15 minutes long, so the rest of your time is usually spent socializing and taking pictures. The Officiant will complete your marriage license before the ceremony. Then the couple can sign together or separately to avoid seeing each other before the ceremony. All packages come with an Officiant, but you are free to bring your own Officiant at no additional charge. The Officiant will be responsible for your marriage license and your wedding vows. NOTE: A marriage CERTIFICATE is a keepsake and not a legal document. A marriage LICENSE is the legal document that you have to receive and file with State of Indiana.
  • Guest Count
    Everyone is counted as a guest expect for the couple, officiant, photographer(s), and non-walking children. The wedding party (bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girl, etc.) are considered guests.
  • Reception
    We do not offer a traditional sit down reception. We are primarily a wedding ceremony venue. We specialize in keeping the cost down for couples, without sacrificing the full wedding experience. We offer a dessert bar for your guest to enjoy after your ceremony. Our dessert bar has a "cocktail hour" feel without the the "cocktail." 😄 It is meant for guests to grab a dessert and cold cup of lemonade (or sweet tea) and socialize throughout the building with the music is going and the love flowing! If you still prefer a sit down reception, DWC recommends utilizing a local restaurant in the area to avoid spending additional funds on your special day.
