San Diego County Launches New Online Reservation System for Marriage Licenses and Wedding Ceremonies

News Date
Oct 23, 2018

The San Diego County Clerk’s Office will launch a new online and mobile friendly reservation system that offers customers the ability to schedule their marriage license and civil ceremony appointments online.

Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr. said “The new system will allow couples to schedule their appointments at any time and no longer require them to either call or come into our offices just to make a reservation.” Dronenburg continued, “the new marriage online reservation system is part of my ongoing effort to modernize our office and enhance the customer service experience by moving folks from in-line in our office to online at their convenience.”

Couples can access the 24/7 appointment system in both English and Spanish by visiting and selecting the “click to schedule” option. They will begin by selecting the office location that they prefer and then select a time from the available appointments for the marriage license application and for a civil ceremony if desired. Once the appointment is made, the system will send a confirmation email to the couple and allow for the option to receive a text message confirmation. They will also be able to modify their appointment online through a link provided in their confirmation email.

The County of San Diego Clerk’s office issued 26,249 marriage licenses and performed 14,780 ceremonies in 2017.


Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr. is the San Diego County elected Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk. During his time in office, he has re-opened the Chula Vista and Kearny Mesa satellite offices and extended hours for the public at all of his County offices. Dronenburg has made moving taxpayers from “in-line to online” a top office priority, reduced paper waste, and eliminated a backlog in taxpayer appeals. Dronenburg is a graduate of the San Diego State University, School of Business Administration.
