Quick! Wanna get married on Valentine’s Day? Get in line.
The Orange County Clerk-Recorder’s offices will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., waiting for you to tie the knot. Of course, those who made appointments will get priority. But walk-ins are welcome on an as-available basis.
Patch says, why not take a chance?
According to the Clerk-Recorder’s office, the department issued 224 marriages Feb. 14, 2013 – 170 of them getting hitched right there in the government offices.
Nothing says romance like a bureaucratic office.
“Valentine’s Day has consistently been one of the busiest days for civil marriages at the Clerk-Recorder,” says a press release from the office.
It gets better. If you choose to go to the Old County Courthouse between 9:30-10:30 a.m., you might have a Harlem Globetrotter hand you a red rose.
Excuse us while we swoon…. And congrats!
