There is no process. People can write or call the immigration authorities. I suggest that you and your wife make sure you have proof of the marriage to submit. This include things like copies of leases with both your names, joint bank accounts and so on. You have to prove that your marriage is real.

It does not matter where you got married. You can hire a licensed immigration attorney in ANY U.S. State. The cost will depend on what your immigration needs are.
