Please note that we are keeping close track of local and government announcements and closings. We also practice safe distancing and usage of protective masks, and are not offering our services for any indoor events for the duration of this situation. Currently, as the governor has limited public gatherings to 5 people or less, this can only include the couple and 2 witnesses . We are limiting our service area to Newport, the Aquidneck Island area, and Jamestown for May and June. Please note that 2 witnesses are required, and while in the past we have always been able to ask passersby to witness for us if you don't have anyone, this is not a trustworthy option with the current coronavirus activity! Also note that getting your marriage license might require you making an appointment with the city or town clerks in advance, as they are mostly closed for walk-ins. As my wife and I are both in the higher risk category for infection, we are not offering services for anyone but Rhode Island residents as out of state couples are required to self quarantine for 14 days. This will change at some point, but at least for any events to take place in May and possibly June, this might be the situation.
