From what I understand (and I don’t know anything about Catholic weddings) you get the license from the courthouse. Not necessarily married there, that’s your choice.

Each state has different rules about when you can pick up your marriage license.  In Cuyahoga County, you have 30 days to “use” your license.  We are going in 2 weeks before our wedding and picking up the license.  We then bring it to our church, you go thru the wedding, and they everyone signs the marriage certificate.  You are LEGALLY wed the minute you sign the license.

So no, you aren’t required to get married elsewhere.  Your officiant will be there when you sign the license, and that is your wedding.

You will need to pick up a marriage license from the county courthouse or county clerk (check with someone to find out where in your county).  The priest will be the one to sign the license and return it to the county so that it can be recorded.  So no need to get married somewhere else!

as long as the person marrying you is ordained then you don’t need to go to the courthouse to get married, just get the marriage license signed and mail it in!
