To be legally married in the State of Nevada, you must purchase a marriage license and have a marriage ceremony performed. The fee for the license is $60.00 (Cash, Money Order or Traveler’s Check).
The marriage license may be obtained up to one year prior to the ceremony. The marriage license must be purchased in person in the Marriage License Bureau in either Reno or Incline Village.

In Nevada, a Notary can officiate at weddings.  But I perform weddings as a Minister or Deacon of the Universal Church Monastery. I specialize in last minute, mobile, non-denominational  civil ceremonies.  We do not have a chapel but my home is a registered church and weddings can be performed there as well as hotel rooms, parks, restaurants and anywhere in Washoe county.

Call me at 775-750-7947 and lets formalize your relationship. 

-Deacon "J", Jeff
