Name Change

I got married within the past year and legally have taken my husband's last name (I've been using my new name on my tax documents, insurance, etc.) However, my Driver's License and Passport are still in my maiden name, and I have yet to change those since I am travelling abroad next month and don't want to risk not getting my updated documents in time, as these things can sometimes take weeks to process. I've verified my location via Upwork, but would still like to change my name sooner than later (especially as my resume/social media accounts/email signature all reflect my married name).
Is there a way to change my name using my marriage certificate as proof of my name change? Or should I just avoid the hassle and continue looking for work under my maiden name?
