A: As long as the couple has a valid Nevada marriage license and the ceremony was performed by a Nevada licensed Officiant with at least one witness, then the marriage is legally recognized. The officiant’s failure to record the marriage documentation within the required 10 days after the ceremony does not nullify the marriage, however it does make it harder to document as you will not receive a marriage certificate. Without having completed the marriage license application, however, the marriage would not be legal binding.
