Your official marriage certificates will then be mailed to you by the County Clerk in approximately two weeks following your ceremony.

Note for Tennessee residents: You may use a marriage license from the county that you reside in. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the minister will mail in your license to be recorded.

You will need to ask your local county clerk for the details, as every county clerk's office is a little different.
