Marriage Certificate

Hello all, this is my first post to this group.

What is the proper way to go about requesting a marriage certificate? I didn't want to trouble anyone so I tried to order it through "Vita Link!" right on the record at Ancestry.com but when i go through the whole process, it says it can't access my record.

Is there someone I can pay to go to wherever these records are kept and get me a copy? Or a photo or scan? Does that service exist, without going through the state? Is it expensive to go through the state?

Here's what I know:

Francis Edward McAdams married Ellen Maria McLaughlin on May 2, 1874 in Watertown, WI. In my record is says Jefferson, Watertown City, WI. So, I'm thinking it's Watertown, that's where the family was located. I am pretty sure these are my great, grandparents.

Any advice or guidance would be appreciated.

I'm new to this stuff.

Mary
