All Your Questions About Marriage, Answered.
What is your availability?
Text "LOVE" to (904) 309-0606 to begin booking! We are open Monday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! Our availability is whatever works best for you.
Why Do I Need to Pay a Deposit?
At the Walk-in Wedding Chapel, we want to make every process as easy and simple for you. Unfortunately, some couples don't show up, costing another couple that time slot. Not to mention we are a small business and performing weddings are how we earn a living! No-shows cost us money out of our pocket. The deposits are not an extra charge, they are part of your total advertised cost and are simply a placeholder to hold your desired slot.
What Happens if I Don't Want to Pay a Deposit?
If you haven't yet paid a deposit, your slot will unfortunately not be booked. We want to protect both you and us in the event of any unprecedented situations, so we accept a deposit upfront to reserve your slot. We are not accepting walk-ins at this time due to the high volume of weddings. We cannot hold a slot without a deposit. All reservations are first come, first serve.
Can I get married without a marriage license?
Just like you cannot drive without your driver's license, you cannot get married without a marriage license. You must purchase a State of Florida Marriage License before getting married. Please visit any of our friends at the Baker County courthouse or Duval County courthouse to obtain your marriage license! Then, you can book your appointment at the Walk-in Wedding Chapel!
Can I bring more than 20 guests?
Our chapel is made for small, intimate weddings. Because of this, we have twenty total seats in our chapel. We ask that all your guests remain seated during the ceremony, so please refrain from bringing too many guests.
How long is the ceremony?
The ceremony itself is about 8 to 10 minutes long, but your slot will be booked for an hour to allow enough time to meet with Chaplain Scott, fill out your marriage license, and go through a brief rehearsal before the ceremony, and to do your photoshoot afterwards.
What happens if I'm late?
We ask that you aim to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to avoid unprecedented events like traffic and such, but please be courteous of the couple in front of you and come inside right at the time of your reservation. We run on a seamless schedule to ensure the quality of every wedding, so please do not be late. More information on these policies will be in the Terms Of Service we will send to you when you are booking your wedding!
