Wedding Ceremonies reference all ceremonies for couples of opposite or same sex. Same sex marriage is legal and welcome in Maryland and Kelly is happy to help all loving couples join in matrimony.
For those who, for legal reasons, prefer a commitment ceremony rather than a marriage, all options on this site apply for those as well.
An intimate civil ceremony with a few guests, an alternative to a court house wedding, or an elopement can be performed at Kelly's office in Baltimore Maryland. Information about civil ceremonies, eloping and alternatives to a courthouse wedding may be found the elopement page of this site.
