May a duly appointed pro tempore judicial officer perform wedding ceremonies?
RCW 26.04.050 lists those persons who are authorized to perform marriages in this state. That statute does not authorize the solemnization of marriages by pro tempore judges who by the nature of their appointments serve in a temporary capacity only. Therefore, pro tempore judges are not authorized to perform marriages.
