Q. Can our wedding officiant be our witness?
A. No. When the two of you are having a private ceremony, it’s best to obtain a confidential license. With a confidential license you don’t need a witness signature. Additional advantage of a confidential license is that there are no returned licenses for signature issues, which incur additional fees.
If there will be just the two of you on your wedding day and you have booked a package with MySFweddng.com we will provide a witness to sign your marriage license.
