what is going to be said. Your ceremony is about you, the bride
and groom, not about the celebrant. Rev. Bob is committed to
working with you to create a ceremony that will reflect exactly
what you want.
Rev. Bob will
officiate at weddings in hotels, banquet halls, parks, chapels, the beach, the ocean

to a dock or pier), themed weddings, stadiums, or
where ever you want. Entering the new millennium, wedding

proposed marriage is to be performed.
You will need one adult witness
who knows both of you, to be present at the time of the
application. You will be asked; the date, time, location, and the name, address,
phone number of the officiant.
Once obtained, the ceremony can be anywhere in NJ (except
if the bride and groom both live out of NJ, then they must be married in the
town where the license was issued). The fee charged by
the state of New Jersey for the license is $28. Blood tests are

and 37:1-5 of
"the license shall not be issued by a licensing

Also, you must have 2 adult witnesses at the ceremony who shall
also sign the marriage certificate. (In some cases, and
when prearranged, Rev. Bob can provide witnesses for the ceremony. Anyone over
the age of 18 can be a witness.)
Bob will file your solemnized license with the municipal
registrar of vital statistics
in the township where the marriage ceremony was performed. He
will give you a keepsake copy of the license along with a keepsake lithographed marriage
certificate. Most local registrars are able to issue you
certified copies of your marriage license, which the bride will need to change
her last name. Certified copies are also needed for many legal issues through
out both of your lives. If you can't get them in the town where you were
married, read the NJ State Department of
Vital Statistics web site.
Rev. Bob, by law, can not issue or obtain certified copies.
