What is the difference between a marriage license and certificate?

A marriage license permits a couple to get married while a marriage certificate serves as proof that a marriage has taken place. For a copy of the marriage license or license application, please contact the Washoe County Clerk’s Office at 775-784-7287, or online at www.washoecounty.us/clerks.
