Time will soon run out for couples to sign up for the Clerk’s 11th Annual Valentine’s Day Group Wedding. Up to fifty couples are expected to be joined together for one group wedding ceremony on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14, 2017 in the romantic and picturesque Wedding Garden of the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo. At this point, there are only a handful of spots open since over 40 couples have already reserved their place to take part in the annual tradition.
A single ceremony will unite all couples in attendance. The event is organized by the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, Ken Burke. The couples will be treated to a beautiful melody performed by Deputy Clerk Tiffany Clayton. In addition, everyone in attendance will be serenaded with a cappella melodies performed by the Charmonizers Barbershop Quartet. The couples and their guests will celebrate with wedding cake and refreshments provided by local sponsors.
The Clerk has waived the normal $30.00 ceremony fee. Standard marriage license fees will still apply. To participate, couples must sign-up no later than Friday, January 27, 2017.
