Outdoor Weddings Are Our Specialty Since We Are The "Beach Church"

Planning a wedding?

Celebration Beach Church can help. Begin by contacting our wedding service coordinator Linda Messmer who will walk you through the process and make your wedding day service meaningful and lasting.


  • Go together to the nearest Clerk of the Circuit Court office to obtain a marriage license.
  • Marriage licenses are good for 60 days.
  • The standard fee is $93.50, which can typically be paid with cash, charge or personal check.
  • Florida residents must wait three days to get a license. However residents who can provide documentation showing they completed a state-approved marriage preparation course within the year don’t have to wait the three days. (The pastors at Celebration use the “Pre-Marriage Awareness Inventory” with topics including conflict management, financial and parenting responsibilities.) 
  • As a bonus, residents who take the course get a reduction of $32.50 off the license fee.
  • It’s not necessary for residents to obtain licenses from their home county.
  • As soon as a Florida license is obtained, a wedding ceremony can be performed anywhere in the state of Florida.
  • To obtain a marriage license, U.S citizens must provide their social security numbers and photo identification, such as driver’s licenses. International visitors must bring passports, or naturalization or immigration numbers.
  • People who have been married previously must provide the date of divorce, annulment or spouse’s death.
  • With a few exceptions, both the bride and groom are required to be 18.
  • Florida doesn’t require blood tests or medical exams.
  • Contact the local clerk of the circuit court for further information.
