MARRIAGE ceremonies were held throughout the county on Wednesday, February 14 as couples marked Valentine’s Day by exchanging vows.

Valentine’s Day is traditionally one of the most sought-after wedding days for the County Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk’s (ARCC) offices throughout the county. In 2014, the office issued 266 licenses and performed 242 ceremonies, making it the busiest Valentine’s Day for the County.

On Wednesday, between the four ARCC locations, 129 marriage licenses were issued and 101 wedding ceremonies took place.

Some couples got a special wedding day surprise this year. ARCC partnered with the Larry Himmel Neighborhood Foundation to cover the cost for the first 20 weddings at the County Administration Center.

On average, the office issues nearly 25,000 marriage licenses and performs more than 11,000 weddings each year. Nearly half of customers who request a marriage license also hold their wedding ceremonies at the ARCC’s office.
