1. LICENSE. Obtain a marriage license from any Arizona county. Here’s a link to the marriage license office near our Phoenix wedding studio: Click here.
Advice: The marriage license is $76. However, a certified copy of the license is needed to change a bride’s name at Social Security and Motor Vehicles. Pre-pay for the certified copy ($27.50) when you buy the license and they mail it to you automatically. Certified copies are believed to be free for individuals in active military.
2. WITNESSES. Select two people age 18 (or older) to come with you to sign the marriage license as legal witnesses. (If you do not have witnesses we can provide them for $30 each).
3. CALL US. We can schedule your elopement wedding today or tomorrow! Our fee is $100 for the bride, groom and your 2 witnesses attending (age 18 or over). If you have more than 2 (3 up to a maximum of 10 more) people attending the elopement with you (men, women or children), the fee is $160.

INFORMATION ABOUT ELOPING IN PHOENIX
Our word “elope” likely came from the Scandinavian word ‘lopen,’ which means “to run away.”
Instead of spending a lot of time and money planning a big wedding ceremony and reception, an elopement can expedite the marriage process. “To elope” means to literally run away with your partner. Eloping is customarily used to refer to a marriage performed in a sudden and secretive fashion.
One’s parents or the church once required permission before getting married. Sometimes it was announced publicly to see if anyone might object. One thing about an elopement — Arizona Wedding Law does not require anyone to give permission to marry (unless one or both partners is a child).
An “elopement” is a wedding conducted on short notice and without rigid rules. Many do not care about big affairs and some people cannot afford an expensive wedding celebration. An elopement in Phoenix is a perfect way to celebrate your marriage.
