The Alameda County Clerk-Recorder's Office is again taking reservations this year for couples who want to get married on Valentine's Day.
The office will offer the holiday ceremonies from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Wednesday at its satellite location at 7600 Dublin Blvd. in Dublin (in the outdoor courtyard) and its main office at 1106 Madison St. in Oakland (in the specially furnished Wedding Room).
A marriage license must be obtained from the main office in Oakland by Tuesday to qualify for a Valentine's Day ceremony -- which costs $75 and lasts about 20 minutes.
Appointments are required for the Dublin location and recommended for Oakland, though walk-in service will be offered in Oakland on a first-come, first-served basis.
