The documents required are:

Passport picture page or valid state issued picture ID for Bride & Groom.
Witness (18 years up) passport picture page or valid state issued picture ID (minimum 2 witnesses).

If either party has been divorced a copy of the 1st and last page of the divorce decree(s) is required.
