And yet, there will always be those who want to be married by someone close to them. What a wonderful idea!
Before 2023, NYS Legislation made it challenging for a friend, family member, or someone ordained online to perform your ceremony on Long Island without additional assistance. But finally, on March 28th of 2023, it becomes legal for laypersons and those with online ordinations to apply for a “single day/single event marriage officiant permit” in New York!

NOTE: Information on how to apply for the single use permits is still forthcoming and we will update this article as details are released.
Whatever your dream is for your ceremony, we’re here to help make it a reality. Some couples choose to use our writing services in conjunction with a signature service (aka: sit and sign). Others ask us to serve in a co-officiating capacity. We have always collaborated and co-officiated and understand that time constraints may make obtaining the permit more of a burden than a blessing for some. Additionally, we are adding new levels of service and can customize all of our packages to fit your needs, with our most popular options listed on our website.
If going through the trouble of securing a single-use officiant permit is too stressful, or if your situation doesn’t qualify, we’re here to help! Click here for information about our Signature Services (aka: Sit and Sign).
Whether you are getting married by us or another of your choosing, it is our pleasure to help with anything that can make the moment you say “I do” as easy and as stress free as possible.
