I am eloping fairly soon at the Clarence Mitchell courthouse in Baltimore, MD and I wanted to see if anyone else has been married there! We are having our photographer friend be our witness…and photographer, but I have no clue if you can take pictures inside. I am pretty sure there are signs that say “No Pictures in hallway”. definitely makes sense, I saw a man in handcuffs when I was purchasing my license!!
Has anyone ever been married there or knows the policy about pictures during the ceremony? Thank you!
(I will be doing the smart thing and calling the courthouse as well)

Check with the courthouse. We got our license there and I don’t remember seeing any signs. I do remember thinking that it’s a pretty–if slightly dilapidated, gotta love Baltimore–building and that you could get some really pretty pictures in the halls, by the archways, etc. Also the clerk’s office is sort of tucked back away from the courtrooms, guys in handcuffs, etc so you can probably get at least a couple pics in before anyone notices.
Also you probably know this but you have to get your license a few (3?) days before and it’s good for 6 months. Bring cash, know both SSNs and where you were born, but you don’t both have to be there. This is probably not new information but I would hate for you to get there and not be able to get married. You get your license from the same place where you get married so you can check it out while you’re down there.

If you can’t get photos in the courthouse (I know there was a “turn off your cell phones” sign in the room where you get your license, but I can’t remember seeing anything about photos)- I think it would be a LOT of fun if you made a “Just Married” sign, and hopped on the circulator. You could get your photo taken in front of so many landmarks- it would make for an awesome wedding album!
