There is no residency requirement for a marriage license in Connecticut, both the Bride and Groom may live elsewhere. In addition, there is no requirement for a blood test and there is no waiting period. These requirements of obtaining a marriage license in Connecticut and the fact that we are within walking distance of the Town Hall affords A Cardinal House the opportunity to offer you some unique elopement packages.

Elopement packages start at $475.00 and there are many combinations and amenities that we are able to offer, and because each couple's needs and desires are different, we recommend that you contact us to discuss and design a package that reflects your special day.
