I live in AAC. I called the Circuit Court Clerks office and the woman told me only a clerk or an officiant endorsed by a recognized clergy could legally perform marriages in MD. I didn’t specifically ask if an online ordainment counts, but I’ve read in some places the validity of the marriage could come into question with an online ordainment. I think the best thing to do is call and ask the particular county. PG’s link is: http://www.co.pg.md.us/Government/JudicialBranch/Clerk/marriage_license.asp

Good luck!!

@purpleDP:  I totally forgot about this thread. I live in AAC as well but getting married in Queen Anne’s County, I was told as long as they are ordained in a state they are fine, since FI’s grandmother is from WV but she is ordained there.
