Marriage Equality in Florida
Marriage at Sunshine Cathedral

As of December 2014, Marriage Equality will become legal in the state of Florida on January 6, 2015

Sunshine Cathedral is ready for Marriage Equality and YOUR WEDDING.

Sunshine Cathedral is prepared and wanted to share this information for those who are considering getting married in Florida.

In Broward County, the standard marriage license fee is $93.50 and includes a 3-day waiting period before a marriage ceremony can be performed.

The only exceptions to the 3-day waiting period are:

a. If both applicants reside out-of-state and are able to present valid proof of photo identification indicating their out-of-state address at the time of filing the marriage license application. (Please call County Office where wedding will take place for other acceptable proof.)

b. If the applicants present an original pre-marital course completion certificate at the time of filing the marriage license application.

NOTE: If the couple elects the option to attend a pre-marital course from a registered provider, the marriage license fee is lowered to $61.00 and the waiting period is waived upon providing an original certificate of completion at the time of filing the application.

Sunshine Cathedral has three clergy who are registered in the Courts system as Premarital Course Providers. Courses will be offered at Sunshine Cathedral on the following dates:

Please call 954.462.2004 ext. 208 for the next scheduled class.
