Marriage Ceremony

The Mayor of the City of St. Marys conducts weddings by appointment, Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm. There is a minimum donation of $50 for this service.

The parties to a marriage shall make an application for a marriage license no less than five nor more than thirty days before a license is issued. Each of the persons seeking a marriage license shall personally appear in the probate court within the county where either resides or if neither is a resident of this state, where the marriage is expected to be solemnized. If neither party is a resident of this state, the marriage may be solemnized only in the county where the license is obtained. The Mayor can only perform marriages in Auglaize County. Witnesses are no longer necessary for a marriage ceremony. After the ceremony, the Mayor will sign your license and mail the marriage license to the county where the license was obtained.

If you want to renew your wedding vows, you do not need any documents or papers.
