 Here's a sample of what's on the page:

"Ceremony: Couples themselves can solemnize their own marriage (C.R.S. 14-2-209). Others who can solemnize a marriage are judges, retired judges, magistrates, public officials authorized to perform marriages, or in accordance with any mode of solemnization recognized by a religious denomination, American Indian tribe, or nation. Not anyone can solemnize a marriage. Although the couple may solemnize their own marriage, that does not mean a friend or relative can also solemnize their marriage. Clergy from out-of-state need not be registered in Colorado. 

Witnesses: Witnesses are not required in the State of Colorado.

Application: Both the bride and groom must complete and sign the marriage application form. Both parties must apply in person. If one of the parties cannot appear in person, he or she must complete an affidavit received from our office with the signature notarized. 

A couple already married who wish to renew their marriage vows or those who have had a common law marriage may obtain a license by stating that they are married to each other. 

The person solemnizing the marriage shall complete the marriage certificate form and forward to the county clerk and recorders office within 60 days after solemnizing."
