Marriage Declaration Ceremonies

Judge DePiazza does not conduct traditional marriage/wedding ceremonies. Judge DePiazza will conduct a brief formal declaration of civil marriage ceremony. The ceremony will strictly be a witnessing to the individuals’ acknowledgement that they want to be united under the marriage laws of Texas and the exchange of rings, if desired.


Declarations are scheduled between 9:15 am and 4 pm by appointment and based on availability. Appointments can be made up to 30 days from the requested date. Appointments are not available after hours.


There will be no photography or video recording during the declaration. You may use the courtroom afterwards to take pictures if you wish.


Appointments will not be confirmed until an acknowledgement (PDF) is turned into the office and the $100 cash fee is paid.
