To the best of my knowledge there is no place that would allow it. Marriage has legal ramifications and as such is carefully recorded.

As a general rule...the term is "unmarried." However, if you live as married without intent to deceive or defraud, legal doctrine provides you may be considered de facto married.

The license must be issued by the county where the ceremony is to take place. A legal marriage in Mexico is valid in the US.

If the license was not executed, the marriage was not completed. No certificate of marriage was issued.

The marriage would not be legal. You would have had to lie on the application for a license or forged the permission slips. It could be annulled.
