News: I accept Texas and Tennessee Marrriage Licenses in addition to Louisiana Marriage Licenses. And they are Legally Binding if you get married in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

By law, Texas and Tennessee marriage clerks can issue marriage licenses that are valid outside of those states. Additionally, Texas and Tennessee residency is not required. You do not have to live in Texas or Tennessee -- or Louisiana to obtain a marriage license and get married in Louisiana, so couples from anywhere can use this option for their conveniece. 

Please check with the County Clerks in Texas and Tennessee for details.
