You and your spouse decide to get married to each other.
Contact the chaplain at the prison you want to get married at. Prison chaplains no longer officiate wedding ceremonies in Oklahoma, so you will want to start the process as far in advance as possible with your wedding officiant in Oklahoma. Also, prisons usually allow for weddings once every spring and fall. If you are planning your wedding ceremony for the spring, then you should be starting the process the summer or fall before that then.
Find your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies to travel to your location for your wedding ceremony in Oklahoma. With enough advance notice, many a wedding minister in Oklahoma can travel to your location throughout the State of Oklahoma for your wedding ceremony in OKC.
Have your wedding officiant in Oklahoma City with Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies fill out the marriage form the prison chaplain will give you. The wedding minister in Edmond OK will have to list her/his/their contact information and minister’s credentials number.
The prison chaplain does the appropriate background checks on everyone, and then she/he/they either approve or deny the wedding ceremony in Oklahoma.
If the prison chaplain grants her/his/their approval, then you and your future spouse can move forward with getting your wedding license in OKC with the courthouse where the prison is located.
Please be sure you and your future spouse get your wedding license in Oklahoma beforehand, in accordance with the prison’s procedures. The prison chaplain in Oklahoma can easily walk you through that step, as can the court clerk in that jurisdiction. Your wedding officiant in Oklahoma does not issue your wedding license, so be sure to bring it with you and to get it beforehand.
On the day designated for your prison wedding ceremony, you and the wedding minister in Oklahoma City will both need to show up to the prison at the proper time. Be sure to bring your photo ID from the state or federal government, and do not bring any weapons or contraband. Otherwise, they will not allow either one of you inside and/or will cancel the wedding ceremony.
After the wedding ceremony in OKC, please make sure to return the marriage license in Oklahoma to the court clerk that issued it.
Please always be good to each other! Life is so incredibly short!!!
