Order Certified Copies of Marriage Records

Many agencies and organizations accept certified copies of certificates of marriage as legal proof of marriage.

Snohomish County Recording only has access to marriage records that were licensed and recorded in Snohomish County. If you received your marriage license in another county, please contact that county for copies.

Visit our Search Recorded Documents page to request copies online, in person, by phone, and by mail.

If you need a certified copy immediately following your ceremony, you should return in person to the Snohomish County Customer Service Center with the completed Certificate of Marriage.
