A Notary Public is a State Official appointed to notarize documents anywhere in the state in which they are Commissioned. A Notary acts as an impartial witness to certain transactions.

Yes. Florida is one of only three states (the other two are Maine and South Carolina) who authorize their Notaries Public to “solemnize the rites of matrimony.” §117.045, Florida Statutes. A Florida notary may perform a marriage ceremony providing the couple first obtains a marriage license from an authorized Florida Official and may only perform such ceremony within the geographical boundaries of Florida. Thus, a Florida notary cannot perform a marriage ceremony in another state. Additionally, a notary from another state, including South Carolina and Maine, could not perform a marriage ceremony in Florida.
