  • Updated marriage license application to be used during the COVID-19 emergency. View application and instructions.
  • Due to COVID-19 travel advisories, anyone having a civil ceremony or attending a civil ceremony cannot travel outside of Maryland within 14 days prior to the ceremony date.

There are 24 jurisdictions in Maryland. You MUST contact the County/City Court in the location where you plan to marry for marriage license information. The information below pertains to marriage license information for marriages taking place in CALVERT COUNTY ONLY.

How to apply
Application may be made Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at the office of the Clerk of Circuit Court.

If it is not convenient to visit the Clerk’s Office in the county where the marriage is to take place, you may apply for a license using a Non-Resident Affidavit form. This form must be taken to the Clerk of the Circuit Court or comparable official where you reside. A “comparable official” would be the public official in the State, County, or Province where you reside who issues marriage licenses or performs the same duties as the Clerk of Circuit Court in Maryland. A notary public’s affidavit is not sufficient, since that official, although a public officer, does not perform the same duties and is not comparable to a Clerk of Court in Maryland. Take the Non-Resident Application Form to your local official who issues Marriage Licenses and provide them with a copy of the instructions.


Day-of-Wedding Planning is recommended for the couple that has already started planning but needs some help to book additional vendors, create a design plan and or tie up loose ends. Day-of-wedding planning allows you to select which services you require help with and which ones you’ll handle. Let us take care of as much or as little of the planning as you need! If you have booked most of your vendors but need help finding the rest, we are happy to make that happen. Feeling stuck creatively, we can help with the design.

Happy Clients

“Mrs. Elizabeth Chavez made the entire process so much less stressful. She was more than kind, accommodating, and helpful in more ways than one! She always answered my emails within a day and thoroughly. She went above and beyond, I would recommend her to anyone!”

“I just want to say Thank You to Elizabeth  for keeping me sane during the wedding planning process and making it so fun! She kept up with even the smallest detail so nothing was forgotten and I wasn’t stressed out. I feel like I’ve known her forever- she makes you feel like family.  Everything turned out great.  My wedding day was magical!” 

“It was the BEST decision we ever made. She was on top of everything, and it made the last weeks leading up to my wedding more fun than stressful! She called all the vendors, created an amazing day of schedule and SO much more. She called me the morning of the wedding to check in and see how I was doing! She was so kind and organized, I really could not have asked for anything more. I highly recommend her to anyone and we cannot thank her enough for helping us create our dream wedding!”

“As the mother of the bride, and living across the country from my daughter and the wedding venue, it was rather daunting at first to think of planning this special weekend from afar, but our Las Perlas Events with Elizabeth made it possible for us to do in one weekend!”

It’s Going to be Perfect!
