If your wedding plans were affected by COVID-19, well, California now has another option for you!

CBS2 reports that Californians who had stalled wedding plans this year can now use videoconferencing to fulfill their wedding plans. For the next 60 days, California residents don’t have to leave their homes to obtain marriage licenses!

Governor Gavin Newsom has signed an executive order Thursday (04/30) which allows adults to use videoconferencing to receive marriage licenses. The new order applies to any adult as long as both adults are located within the State of California, are present, and can present identification.

CBS2 says those who wish to be married via videoconference can conduct the ceremony as long as both parties and one witness are present.
