This Deep Creek Lake wedding mini guide is meant to give an overview of options in our area. I’ll admit, I’m not a wedding expert. Real estate is my focus. However, I do know the area and some of the most popular options for your special day.
Deep Creek Lake Wedding License
This is an important detail. You apply in person at the Garrett County Courthouse. It is open from 8:30am-3:45pm, Monday-Friday (except holidays). The fee is $40.
Garrett County Court House
203 S. 4th Street, Room #109

You must be at least 25 years of age, only 1 person needs to apply. Bring the following info: Name, Address, Date of Birth and Social Security number.
If either party is divorced, you present the Divorce Decree. You may use the marriage license 2 days after it is issued and it is good for 6 months.
Have Your Event in a Taylor-Made Vacation Home
Imagine saying “I do” with stunning lake views in the background. Have your ceremony and/or reception at a vacation rental home will make it truly unique. Taylor-Made has more than a dozen properties that host weddings. They must be outdoor events, and there are a few guidelines. Our event coordinator will help with all the details.
Whether or not you have your ceremony in a rental home, Taylor-Made can help with accommodations for you and your family. Homes range in size from 1-9 bedrooms. Also, they have tons of fun amenities like private pools and hot tubs. Stay in homes that are close together and turn your destination wedding into a fun, family vacation.
