Boone County To Offer Free Valentine’s Day Group Wedding Ceremony

Turn a Valentine’s date into a Valentine’s mate.
27

For those couples who just don’t want to wait—or don’t want to spend countless hours planning for their one day of matrimony— officials in Boone County are offering the chance to turn a Valentine’s date into a Valentine’s mate. For the first time since Kenny Brown has been a Boone County clerk, Valentine’s Day is falling on a Saturday, allowing him to do something he’s always hoped to do: offer a group wedding ceremony waived of all ceremony fees on one of the most traditionally romantic and busy wedding days of the year. The ceremony, open to up to 20 couples, will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 14, in the Boone County Fiscal Courtroom, and Brown will also be opening the clerk’s office from noon to 3 p.m. for those couples that still need the necessary marriage license (the only payment involved in this marriage opportunity at just $35.50.) Although fees for the ceremony are being waved, the couples involved won’t be given a bland read-your-vows-and-run. Rather, Brown has promised to make it a memorable occasion with a decorated courtroom, music, a poem reading by Justice of the Peace Phyllis Sparks, and cupcakes generously donated by Gigi’s Cupcakes and, of course, the ecstatic, glowing company of all the other love-struck couples.
