If you’re on a cruise ship and Key West is one of your Ports Of Call, you can get married, or have your Vow Renewal Ceremony while you’re here. If you don’t live in Florida, there is no waiting period after you get your marriage license, so you can just hop off your ship and walk the 3 blocks to the courthouse where you’ll receive your marriage license after filling out the paperwork. If you live in Florida there is a 3 day waiting period after you get your marriage license, so you’ll need to get it at your local courthouse and bring it with you. At the courthouse you’ll have to show photo I.D. and the license will cost you $93.50. If you’re having a Vow Renewal, well, you don’t even need a license.
Then grab a pink taxi and head over to Smathers Beach which is on the opposite side of the island from where the cruise ships dock, about 2 miles. I’ll meet you there, we’ll have the ceremony under a palm tree and then back you go to your cruise ship to explore and enjoy the rest of your time here in Key West.
