Here are some helpful tips on what to do next!
In Ohio, a marriage license is required to get married. A license can be obtained through your local county court. If you are a resident of Ohio, the license should be issued in the county in which you live. If you are not a resident of Ohio, the license should be issued in the county in which the ceremony will take place. Licenses are valid for 60 days.
Each county has their own requirements. Here are some links for Franklin and surrounding counties. Please refer to the appropriate county for more information.
Social Security ADMINISTRATION
Once your marriage license has been received by the Probate Court, you can order the Certified Copy of the license. After receiving it, you may start the process of changing your name
Please refer to the Social Security Administration for more information.

Erica was truly fantastic! My partner and I met her at an LGBT+ wedding expo, where we discussed the possibility of eloping with her and knew she would be an excellent officiant. Shortly after we got in touch and just a few weeks ago she married us in the Park of Roses. She was always extremely easy to communicate with, timely, encouraging, and friendly! We forgot our marriage license when we arrived at our elopement, and Erica was so patient with us as we retrieved it. We also got notice that our paperwork was finalized very quickly after the ceremony. I couldn’t recommend a more excellent business to support in Columbus for your wedding needs!!

Erica and Justice at Boom Married came though for us in a clutch. On short notice they made our special day happen. Erica was so helpful and was just as passionate for us as we were. On our special day, Justice stepped up to the plate and rocked our ceremony. The energy these two brought to our wedding was powerful and amazing. Boom Married is definitely the way to go, and I will recommend everyone. Thank you so much

Erica was so amazing from our very first conversation, when communicating leading up to our ceremony, and on our big day! I couldn’t have imagined more beautiful vows or verbal blessing than what Erica prepared for us. I was crying from the moment she started speaking. Thank you so much for making our day even more special! We will always remember you

We got the whole package! Erica was amazing with writing our script and guiding us through the process. Shawnese was a very talented ASL interpreter. LaDonna was professional, kind, with a strong voice! The whole team was flexible and even made last minute script changes due to a family emergency. We truly felt we could rely on them for anything!!
