My husband and I did!I was just the two of us (aside from the judge and a few clerks).All it cost for us was the price of the marriage license.It was exactly the way we wanted it :)

If you mean family...It was my mom, dad, bro, sil, & niece who was a baby. My BIL was there also. It was $25 for the license, that was it.
It was just us in the little room. Other people who were waiting to get married, were outside the room.

It only cost the price of the marriage license, and there was no one there but us.  Unless you want to count the people that work in the county clerk's office.

It cost us $50 for the license. We only had my mom and his BIL there as witnesses. The magistrate asked my hubs if he took me as his wife and then asked if I took him as my hubs and we said yes and that was the end of our vows.

It was like $60. We filled out paperwork, Showed my I.D. And birth certificate, and my hubby's passport and I.D.(he's not a citizen so he used his passport). We waited a week I think for the papers to be done behind the desk, and went back up to sign the marriage license. We had to then go in front of the justice with two witnesses who signed our papers stating they witnessed it, then said our vows over the Bible(till death do you part). That was it. If we hadn't gotten the run around so much it wouldn't have been too long of a process, but we asked what we needed and got told one thing but ended up needing something else.

 I did.  You show up at your appointment, and exchange the vows.  Took about 15 mins and it cost about $15.00.  We had 8 people there.
