I am not from Portland lol but I have been researching City Hall weddings for pictures and ideas online like a crazy (because I am hoping that Fiance will agree to elope rather than having the wedding we’re planning). Anyway, one of my favorites is an adorable couple that got married at City Hall in Portland so I know it is done. I would suggest calling City Hall to find out the details, procedures, etc.

Here are the pictures: http://christycassanomeyer.com/posts/101

Here is a link to an article about them- http://snippetandink.com/alison-chris-intimate-portland-wedding-at-ned-ludd/

Not from Portland, but a lot of JOPs will travel to a different location for an additional fee. Or you could hire an independent ordained minister/wedding officiant and they’ll meet you wherever.

@a_day_at_the_fair:  I’m sorry that this process seems so complicated. Maybe you could call the county clerk’s office and see if they know any information about city hall? Or, is there a general information number you could call where they could refer you? The city hall looks so historic and perfect I would think they get lots of calls from people hoping to marry there. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

@a_day_at_the_fair:  D’oh!  I did not see that is said Maine!


Are you only doing online searches?  Have you called the City Hall directly and then start asking from there?  Good luck!  Keep us posted!

This photographer did a Portland, Oregon wedding at City Hall for a couple named Alison and Chris. Maybe you could contact her about it:

There is also the main Portland, Oregon website and I’m sure if you called their General Information number, someone could put you in the right direction:
