At first, I thought the civil ceremony process would be easy. We were told by the lady who issued our marriage license at the Arlington Courthouse that all we had to do is call one of the three persons on their civil ceremony officiants list and they would take care of us right away. We decided to call all three of these people and had to leave voice mails. A whole week went by and we received no return calls. I then called the clerk's office and was informed that the celebrants are also lawyers, and they are in court most of the time, and only do civil ceremonies when they have time! This was not acceptable, so we called Arlington Civil Ceremonies. One of their ministers returned our call within one hour. They perform beautiful ceremonies in outdoor locations, as well as at private homes. They even offer a choice of ceremonies and music, and they only charged us the standard civil ceremony fee of $50. So don't bother with the busy lawyers in Arlington County! Call the ministers office today for outstanding service!!!
