With comprehensive licensing services and officiants, venues, catering, photography, and florists, we offer all of the inclusive services that will help make your wedding the most cherished and memorable.

The Lincoln County Clerk’s Office has all of the information you will need to get your marriage license. Contact them in person, or call Monday-Friday from 8:30 am to 4 pm. In addition to obtaining your marriage license, you can also schedule wedding ceremonies performed by the Lincoln County Clerk.

Our miles of beautiful beaches will provide a spectacular backdrop for your ceremony, and we also have forested and beachfront city and state parks for the perfect outdoor wedding. If you want to get married and hold your reception inside, we have places with all of the services you’ll need, and your guests can also stay onsite. Best Western Agate Beach Inn, Elizabeth Oceanfront Suites, Embarcadero Resort Hotel, and Shilo Inns Newport Oceanfront are a few of our favorites.

We also have two lighthouses (Yaquina Bay Lighthouse and Yaquina Head Lighthouse) that will host your ceremony, or you can get married at sea aboard a boat from Marine Discovery Tours. Or you may want your wedding to take place amongst beautiful and unique sea life at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Additionally, the Newport Performing Arts Center and the Newport Visual Arts Center are great places to tie the knot.

No matter what kind of food and drink you would like to have catered at your wedding, we have many options that are sure to fit perfectly with your reception. Fresh seafood, regional wines, and local craft beer are some of the most popular choices, and we have a variety of other food and beverage selections as well.

Complete wedding photography services can be arranged through Forinash Gallery, Photos by Jo Wienert, or Simply Design Studios. J.C.
