What happens to the certificate after the ceremony?

The person who performs the Marriage ceremony must complete the certificate after performing the ceremony.  It is their responsibility to return it to the Registrar of the Town where the ceremony occurred.

The town maintains the original license and sends certified copies to the State of Connecticut, and any town(s) of residence within Connecticut that are listed on the certificate for the parties involved.  Once that occurs, you may purchase certified copies from either the town of occurrence or the town(s) of residence listed on the certificate.
