When you are in germany and have a place to stay your wife needs to go to the local city hall to register (every person living in germany needs to regsiter with the local city hall, called Einwohnermeldeamt).

Then you can go with her registration and your marriage certificate to the Aliens Department (Auslaenderbehoerde) , which is usually located in the same building and get your Residency stamp there (Aufenthaltsgenehmigung). In most cities they will do it on the spot, and there is no need to wait for 6 months or so.

Pretty painless process in germany, tbh.
