slinktobee:  I just have the marriage license we submitted originally with signatures from the witnesses and officiant on it. From there, the town embossed it with a seal, signed and dated it. The town recorded it in their records and holds a file on copy. This is proof of our marriage.

NE cannot certify a wedidng that occured in VA. I believe all heterosexual marriages that happen in the US are recognized by the other states.

slinktobee:  Here in FL it is just an extra stamp and seal added to the marriage license. I was disappointed we didn’t get something prettier lol I also paid $4 for 4 extra copies since everything I read said I needed copies to make changes. Nope just use the same certified copy for SS and DL!
