If you aren't one of these people yet, don't worry. You can get ordained online right here on this website. It only takes a few minutes and with thousands of successful weddings conducted by AMM ministers in Clark County, we're confident that our ordination is the best way to become a Henderson Wedding Officiant. Just be sure to follow the instructions closely below, since Clark County has some of the stricted wedding officiant registration rules in the country.
The Clark County Clerk has two registration options for wedding officiants: You can request permission to perform a Single Ceremony or you can apply for Permanent Status. Where you live, the number of weddings you plan to perform, and the time and resources you want to dedicate will determine which option you choose, so let’s start by comparing the two.
If those requirements seem complicated, don’t worry. At this point all you need to do is ask yourself whether you want to perform more than one ceremony, and how much time and energy you want to expend. For many wedding officiants, the single ceremony registration is all that’s required and it’s pretty painless.
The couple is responsible for going to the County Clerk's Office and applying for the license before the ceremony. Both spouses have to apply together. You can start the application online here, before going into the office at 201 E. Clark Avenue in Las Vegas.
It is important to bring these documents with you when you go to register for the license:
Issuance Office: 201 E. Clark Avenue in Las Vegas
