- Wedding: May 2013
My fiance and I are from NYC, but our wedding ceremony will be in Nassau County.
Do we have to get our marriage license from NYC or from Nassau?
The main reason I ask is because my cousin is going to be our ceremony officiant and he plans on getting ordained to do this… but New York has some pretty obscure laws and online ordination is only valid in certain counties. I’m trying to figure out if my cousin needs to register with NYC and become licensed to perform marriage ceremonies in NYC… or if he needs to do this in Nassau…it’s confusing!
Does anyone know? If you live in NYC and got married in Nassau, please let me know where you got the marriage license from. Thank you!
