5). Do we need a witness?
Yes, you need a witness. Depending on where you have your Elopement, one may be provided for you. If you have have a Civil Marriage at the courthouse, a witness will be provided. Due to Covid-19 restrictions and safety measures, you are not permitted to bring any guests with you.

Bring it to your Ceremony! Do not forget it! I cannot stress this enough. After your ceremony, you will need to file your Marriage License within 10 days of your Elopement. After the 10 days you can access the Clark County Recorder’s Office Website to order the proof of marriage. The license should be available a couple days after it has been recorded.
