Since this record shows they were married in Bedford County, I would call the circuit clerk's office there to ask how much and how you get one. Many counties only charge a few bucks for one and want you to include a SASE with it. That is better than writing to Vital Records in Richmond for $12 and waiting 6 weeks for it. By the below record, you KNOW they were married in Bedford County, so the circuit clerk is usually the one who handles these, if not , she can tell you who does!

I know for a fact when I find my relatives marriage records on that it is only a partial record and I always write to Franklin county next door to Bedford for the whole record and it usually contains much more information.

Good luck and let me know if you are successful!!
