Valentine?s Day Express Marriage Service

Submitted By Laurel Anderson

Valentine?s Day continues to be a favorite day to get married, with dozens of couples expected to exchange vows at the County of Santa Clara Government Center on February 14. The County of Santa Clara Office of the Clerk-Recorder is making it easier than ever for couples to exchange their marriage vows through civil ceremony options, including the Express Marriage Ceremony Service at the customer service windows (which doesn?t require appointments) and nuptials in the County?s Wedding Chapel with up to 20 family members and friends in attendance.

Leading up to their nuptials, couples can save time by filling out and submitting their marriage applications online before coming to the County Clerk-Recorder?s Office. The online application is available at (click Marriage Services and Applying for a Marriage License) or

The County offers civil marriages as a service to the community. On a typical day, the Office of the Clerk-Recorder performs about 23 marriages. This easily doubles during Valentine?s Day; there were 61 marriages on Valentine?s Day 2017. In 2017, the Clerk-Recorder?s Office issued 10,676 marriage licenses and scheduled 4,522 marriage ceremonies throughout the year. Some couples come alone; others come with the pageantry of a full wedding party. For more information:
