Marriages - Was Clark county like Las Vegas?

So many of my family members who were living in Oregon got married in Vancouver, WA. This would be from about 1920-1940. Why would they travel from Salem to Vancouver to get married? This has had me puzzled. Was Clark county like Las Vegas where couples could get married quickly (get a license and married on the same day)? I'm not sure about the marriage regulations for Oregon but perhaps they had a waiting period between getting the license and the actual marriage.
