City of Ferndale Mayor Dave Coulter performs marriage ceremonies on the third Thursday of every month at City Hall. Ceremonies must be confirmed and paid for at least one week prior (by the second Thursday of the month). A marriage license is required by state law. The license is issued by the county clerk from the county in which either one of the parties reside. If both parties are non-residents of the state, you must obtain the license from the county in which the marriage will be performed. Please contact the City Clerk's Office for more information or to schedule a ceremony.
