Due to Governor Inslee’s directive, issued March 23, 2020, related to COVID-19 and the current public health crisis, Pierce County District Court Judges are temporarily unable to perform weddings. We expect to re-evaluate the situation on April 24, 2020. We will continue to update this webpage as new information is received and decisions are made.

First, you should contact the Pierce County Auditor's Office at (253) 798-7435 for information on how to apply for your marriage / wedding license. A Judge can perform the marriage / wedding three days after the date the license is issued.
