Have a Valentine’s Day Garden Wedding
Registration is open for the Pinellas Clerk of Court’s annual group wedding ceremony at the Florida Botanical Gardens.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Couples wanting to make the most romantic day of the year extra special, with a wedding or vow renewal, can register for the Pinellas Clerk’s 14th Annual Valentine’s Day Wedding Ceremony.
Up to 50 couples are expected to be joined together for one group wedding ceremony on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) in the picturesque Florida Botanical Gardens. Couples must register online no later than Feb. 7 at clerkvalentinesdaywedding.eventbrite.com.
To be eligible to participate in the Valentine’s Day Wedding event, application for a marriage license must be made before Feb. 7. The Clerk has waived the normal $30 ceremony fee. Standard marriage license fees will still apply.
“Hosting this event is something we look forward to all year long” said Ken Burke, Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and comptroller. “Helping local and out-of-state citizens get married or renew their vows is an honor.”
The clerk’s office is showcasing the community event complete with an eye-catching window display at the Downtown Clearwater Courthouse. Aimee Matsko and Shantel Griffin, owners of Bearer of the Bling Bridal in Kenneth City, volunteered to design and set up the clerk’s window display again this year.
The ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. in the Wedding Garden of the Florida Botanical Gardens, 12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo. All couples should arrive by 1 p.m. on Valentine’s Day with their marriage license and identification. Wedding photography packages may be purchased with cash, checks or any major credit card the day of the event or at clerkvalentinesweddingphotos.eventbrite.com.
A single ceremony will unite all couples. Everyone will be serenaded with a cappella melodies performed by the Charmonizers Barbershop Quartet. In addition, the couples will be treated to melodies performed by Deputy Clerk Wanda Humbert and Pinellas County staffer James Beaty.
After the ceremony, the couples and their guests will celebrate with wedding cake and refreshments provided by local sponsors. Couples will receive a special Commemorative Marriage Certificate, which will be mailed within one week from the date of the ceremony with the official Certificate of Marriage.
For information about the wedding event, call the clerk’s office at (727) 464-3008 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
