Completing the marriage license is the task that gives a wedding officiant the title “Officiant.” We are making a marriage “officially” legal. In order to be legally married and have the legal rights and privileges of marriage, you need to have a marriage license. The marriage license for a service in the Rainbow Wedding Chapel should be from any county in the State of Pennsylvania. Once you have the marriage license, it needs to be completed by a person who officially meets the requirements of Pennsylvania to do so – usually an Ordained Minister, Judge, Justice of the Peace, or similar. Obtaining a marriage license just means you are allowed to marry. By completing the marriage license, you are choosing to actually marry and enter into the legal contract. A  ceremony must be performed for your marriage to be valid.
