County Clerk Valentine's Day Celebration
SAN FRANCISCO COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE ANNOUNCES A SPECIAL VALENTINE’S DAY CELEBRATION AT CITY HALL
SAN FRANCISCO – This Valentine’s Day, the San Francisco County Clerk’s Office invites couples to celebrate their love and tie the knot at a civil ceremony at San Francisco’s City Hall. In the face of growing concerns around the new administration’s stance on the right to marry, Mayor Lee and the City of San Francisco remains steadfast in its commitment to equality and welcomes all couples to exercise their right to love this Valentine’s Day.
The County Clerk’s Office normally conducts up to 36 weddings per day. This year 80 marriage ceremonies appointments were opened for Valentine’s Day. Additional volunteer marriage commissioners will be assisting with the high volume, and a ceremony area will be set up in the North Light Court, in addition to locations in the rotunda, on the 4th Floor balconies and the Mayor’s Balcony.
Ceremonies will also be open to walk in appointments. Couples with a valid California marriage license or marriage license appointment will be accepted for ceremonies on a first-come, first-served basis on Valentine’s Day. The fee for a ceremony is $81.00. Please review all eligibility requirements at sfgov.org/countyclerk/marriage-general-information or call 3-1-1 for information.
Couples will go home with a long-stem red rose, candy, and a special Valentine’s Souvenir Marriage License. An onsite photo booth with a special San Francisco background will be available for pictures at no cost. The County Clerk’s Volunteer Marriage Commissioner Program, now in its 25 year, is one of the most popular services at City Hall. Last year, over 8,600 marriage ceremonies were performed at the County Clerk’s Office.
