I’ve compiled the guide below to help you through the process of getting married at City Hall in NYC!
What you need:
A license ($35USD), an officiant and a witness. In order to receive your New York marriage license, you and your fiance must appear together at the City Clerk’s office to file the application and present proof of age and identity. Acceptable ID must usually include a photograph and be government issued; the most common forms of proof are a driver’s license or passport.
