How To Get Married in Seattle/Tacoma, Washington State, during Covid 19, Coronavirus, with Wedding Officiant Annemarie Juhlian

Okay, here’s the deal on how to get married during this time of Covid 19 in Seattle, Tacoma, the Puget Sound area.

Short ‘n sweet.

I am writing this UPDATE POST on May 14th, and we’re in the middle of Phase 1 in Washington State.

We need to get to Phase 2 in order to have a gathering of 5 people or less, which allows for a small and intimate wedding ceremony, with social distancing measures.  At least, this is what I am interpreting, with others in our wedding community, from the Governor’s Covid 19 directives.

In a perfect world, Phase 2 will commence on June 1st. Of course, the State may push this date back, depending on our numbers.

If you are planning a small ceremony for June, please consider securing a valid Washington State Marriage License NOW.  You are within the 60 day application window, and because Offices are not open to in-person visits, it takes extra time to get your marriage license documents, via on-line and snail mail.

For all of this you will need a valid Washington State Marriage License, 2 witnesses over the age of 18, a location/venue for your ceremony and someone lovely to marry you.

If I can be helpful in any way, I am here.
