There goes the Judge

Tulsa County judges no longer performing courthouse weddings


Although Oklahoma does not have the justice of the peace position to perform simple weddings, Tulsa Judges still performed weddings.  We had heard the wait time was often over a month to see a judge and now according to a recent Tulsa World article as of February 1st, 2016 Tulsa Judges are no longer performing marriages.  While some blame the lift on same sex marriage bans the official reason is that the case load for Tulsa Judges has simple become too great to be able to schedule weddings.  The article states Judges may still perform weddings by personal request however the courthouse will no longer schedule these and unless you personally know the judge you’ll be needing find someone to officiate your wedding.  For those that just want to get everything done in one stop we often meet couples right at the courthouse for their weddings and then it’s a quick trip back to the county clerk to get everything recorded.

Reverend C.Knight

Hello, I am Reverend Knight. I became ordained in 2001 expressly for the purpose of serving as a wedding officiant for friends seeking alternatives to traditional church weddings. In 2009 I began planning my own wedding and realized two things quickly, first wedding are expensive, second officiants aren't as common as I'd expected. Even if I'm not the minister for your wedding I hope I can help here with advice and suggestions for your big day.
