Are you separated from your fiancé? Is he or she in an Arizona State Correctional Institution, county jail or other detention center? Do your hearts still long to be united in marriage?
Call 480-502-0707 (8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.)
Arizona Prison Weddings can help you achieve your goal of having a wedding ceremony with your incarcerated fiancé at an Arizona State Prison or other jail. The first step is to contact the unit Chaplain for instructions.
Arizona Prison Weddings can be planned for Phoenix metro, Eyman, Florence, Lewis, Tucson, Perryville, Winslow, or Marana, institutions. We are flexible and able to travel. It just takes a little planning, and of course, waiting for the prison to set the wedding date and time. (At this time we do not serve Kingman, Douglas, Fort Grant, Yuma or Safford).
Weddings in Federal Correctional Institutions are also possible. Any designated inmate wishing to be married while incarcerated must have the Warden’s authorization to do so. All paperwork is to be submitted through your Unit Team. Chaplains are available to discuss with the inmate and fiancé the issue of marriage while incarcerated. If an inmate requests permission to marry, he must: 1. Have a letter from the intended spouse, verifying her intention to marry. 2. Demonstrate legal eligibility to marry.
The Local Prison Chaplain does not perform Arizona prison weddings. There are just so many other priorities for the Local Prison Chaplain. He/she will however, help you obtain the Arizona marriage license and schedule the date and time for the ceremony for us to officiate your prison marriage.
We arrive early, dressed right and prepared to officiate your wedding ceremony with dignity. With the correct demeanor and selected words, our jail marriage wedding celebrations have been joyous occasions for more than 30 years.
During our complimentary telephone consultation we can discuss the prison wedding ceremony details and find out what you would like to have said and done by the officiant. We want you to be thrilled with our personalized service.
We perform civil jailhouse wedding ceremonies for people not wanting anything religious. We also perform customary wedding ceremonies for people of faith, ackowledging the presence and blessing of God.
What kind of ceremony can you experience in a prison? Relevant. Connected. First Class. You can even write your own vows.
Our fair Prison Wedding Ceremony Fees range from $250, determined by just a few things. We consider the location, the amount of time needed to travel to the State prison, time to clear security & perform the actual ceremony, and finally, personally record the Arizona marriage license.
Arizona State Prison Weddings are a special part of our ministry that we really enjoy. You will find us positive and encouraging.
Call Phillip or Gwen Waring at our wedding office at 480-502-0707 so we can tell you more and answer your questions. Please call anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. (Arizona time) as our office phone rings at home all hours for ministry emergencies. mail@ArizonaPrisonWeddings.com
“Dear Phil, My wife and I wanted to say thank you – so much – for marrying us and for a wonderful ceremony. Your words were beautiful and your attention to details, sincerity and passion were very moving for all us who were there. God bless!”
Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.
