FAQs

Here are some of the common questions we receive regarding LumaLive.

Is it legal to have a virtual wedding?

In some states, including New York, New Jersey, California, Ohio and Washington D.C., virtual weddings where the officiant is remote are legal. In other states it is noted that the officiant and two witnesses must be present at the time of the wedding (similar to courthouse weddings). With Coronavirus more states are looking to follow in the footsteps and allow for virtual weddings so long as the officiant is present either virtually or in person. Check with your local city clerk to confirm and obtain a marriage license.

How many guests can join?

Each event allows for 3 main cameras and 46 guests. The main camera is typically the bride and groom with the other cameras being the officiant, bridal party or family.

Does the officiant need to be present physically?

In states other than NY, NJ, CA, OH and Washington, D.C., an officiant must be present with the bride and groom, in person. In those states, check with your local city clerk. For countries outside of the U.S., please check your country’s laws.

What equipment is needed to use LumaLive?

To use LumaLive you will need a camera (either webcam or Canon DSLR), a microphone (either built in or external) and computer. Event organizers can use our included iOS app to broadcast and record the event in HD.

How do I invite guests?
