Just about anywhere, as long as you have parental consent. There are no states which would allow persons of such ages to marry without the consent of parent(s) or legal guardian. In most states the minor's parents or guardian must appear in person at the time of the license application. All states require specific identification from all involved parties, including the parents or guardian.
