Marriage Ceremonies

If you prefer a civil wedding ceremony, you may be married at our office by a Deputy Commissioner of Civil Marriage. We do not make appointments, it's first come first serve.

Ceremony Hours

Ceremonies are performed Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding holidays.

You can also request a Deputy to go out to your marriage location to perform the ceremony after business hours. Call 530-265-1221 to request a Deputy.


  • In office ceremonies are $40
  • After hours ceremonies are $90 (That fee is paid to the Deputy)
