Getting Married in Vermont Questions and Answers
Wedding ceremonies can be performed by a supreme court justice, a superior court judge, a district judge, a judge of probate, an assistant judge, a justice of the peace or an ordained or licensed member of the clergy residing in Vermont. Vermont law does not require witnesses. If you would like someone who does not fit into one of these categories the Vermont Secretary of State's Office does issue a temporary officiant license.
