    That is dependent on teh type of marriage license you plan to get.  If you get a public license then you can marry in any county within CA.  If you get a private license then you will have to get married in the county your county received your license from.  Also, you should check with your officiant to see which counties he or she is used to filing in.  My officiant was able to file marriage licenses in one county but not the particular county I was married in.  We had to file the paperwork ourselves.  Maybe it was a little different than that (it;s been so long) but double check with your officiant anyway.

    OMG Kasi I could not for the life of me remember even getting my marriage license. We did a private one.

    yup, ditto what Kasi said ;o)

    Also, note that you have to get it within 90 days of your wedding date. if you get it too soon & it expires & you will have to re-pay & do the licencing thing all over again...

    :o)
