Notary Blog: “Did You Know That Notaries in South Carolina Could Marry Couples?”

With prior scheduling, most couples look to their Pastor or a local Minister to marry them. Many of the local Ministers and Pastors are also Notaries Public. They, with proper ordainment, already have the authority to marry these couples. Some couples choose to have a large formal ceremony. Some couples choose to have a small elopement before their larger ceremony. Some, just want the no-frills paperwork signing. If by chance you want the quick route to marriage, or if you just want to legalize the process before your ‘Big Shebang’ Ceremony later, a Notary Public might be your better option.

Today’s consultation with a Bride getting married on Saturday, July 29, 2017 included conversation about what would happen should the wedding date be a rain-out. Many of the ceremonies I conduct happen impromptu, meaning, they are spur-of-the-moment ceremonies. The couple wants to get married, if not right at the moment, very soon. When you plan your ceremony ahead of time with me, you get added touches.
