Plan Your St. Augustine Elopement

If you’re planning on getting a St. Johns County marriage license, there are a couple things you need to know! Both parties must be present and have picture identification and your social security number. If either or both parties aren’t U.S. residents, then a valid passport will do. Florida State requires that a Family Law Handbook is read prior to the issuance of the license. If you are a Florida resident, you are required to take an approved marriage class or be subject to a three-day waiting period.

If you’re looking for a wedding planner, you’re in luck! There is an abundance of great local companies that are happy to help you organize your St. Augustine wedding. If you’d rather plan it yourself, you’ll need to get a permit for a beach wedding. You have a couple different choices for beaches. Anastasia State Park, a park just 13 minutes from Agustin Inn, allows weddings to be held on the grounds. You can also request a permit from the City of St. Augustine Beach or Fort Matanzas National Monument. You really can’t go wrong with any of these choices!
