San Diego County Clerk welcomes all couples to wed on Valentine’s Day


From County Reports

Valentine’s Day 2014 (2/14/14) is an easy date to remember. The date falls on a Friday and comes before the three-day President’s Day weekend. This will likely mean a record-breaking day for marriage licenses and ceremonies.

San Diego County Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr., wants to make sure that all couples wishing to “tie the knot” or renew their wedding vows come to the historic County Administration Center for their wedding ceremony on Feb. 14.

“We have decided to open our downtown location for walk-in services on Valentine’s Day to accommodate all those wanting to be married on this special occasion,” Dronenburg said in a press release.

The downtown San Diego office at 1600 Pacific Highway will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for licenses and ceremonies. Reservations can be made at (619) 237-0502.

Appointments are recommended and will receive priority, but will not be required on Valentine’s Day.

The cost of a non-confidential marriage license is $70; a confidential marriage license is $89. If a couple would like to be married at the County Administration Center by enthusiastic County staff, the cost is an additional $88. The office has witnesses available, if needed, for an $18 fee.
