Does any one know a CA licensed Justice who would be willing to marry my girl and me in Yosemite? It would involve a 5.8 climb and my 5.12 climbing buddy could do the lead. If you are a JOP you can call me (720-244-7896) for details and to work something out. Timing would be sometime in July (we would have to climb in the evening to beat the heat!). Hope someone out there is up for it!
Karl Bralich (sp?) might be? I think he has married folks before, lives right outside the park in Wawona IIRC. You could find him on Supertopo under username Karl Baba. He's a long time climber and Yos area resident.
Just have a good friend do it. File the marriage papers at the court house.
If you live in CO, as your 720 suggests, this is all you need. Get the marraige license at the courthouse, then anyone can sign it as a witness, bring the signed section back when done. Who wants strangers at a small wedding anyway?
Thanks guys, I wanted my buddy to perform the marriage all along but read it was very difficult to get the certification. Good catch on the 720, but I live in Utah and by July will be a homeless climber living in Yosemite before starting a new job in CA. My girl is a great climber, has a lives to climb lifestyle. I think I'll keep her ;)

I think it's pretty easy, and have several friends who have become "ministers" for this purpose. There are some "religions" where you can get ordained online. You might want to read around a little more.
