Civil Matrimony

The “Mission Capilla de Amor” (Love Chapel) located in the heart of the Mission district provides intimate, simple, professional and fast marriages.

Our chapel and photo studio is the perfect location to marry and take photos for lifelong memories. Weddings are celebrated in English & Spanish in a casual, semi-formal, and formal setting at the “Mission Love Chapel” or at your home or preffered location.

Requirements for a Civil Marriage in California

  • The spouses must be at least 18 years old.
  • The contracting parties must have valid identification. If you do not have a U.S. ID, a foreign passport, consular ID, or national ID is allowed. If you do not have identification in accordance to California state law, your birth certificate and two present witnesses are required.

No blood test is required and your immigration status does not matter.

  • You are charged $ 150 to apply for the California state marriage license.

All ceremonies includes an 8 x 11 size photograph. You will also have the option of choosing from several photos that will be taken during your ceremony by our professional photographer if you wish to add these to your collection of memories for an additional price.

We invite you to celebrate your wedding at the “Mission Love Chapel” but we also perform ceremonies at your home, in parks, salons or any reception site you prefer. We can officiate your wedding anywhere you woudl like (restaurant, the beach, your home, a hospital, etc.). Prices vary depending on the location, distance and weekday.
