Couples planning to tie the knot on Valentine’s Day may do so at the Alameda County Clerk-Recorder’s satellite office in Dublin, where reservations for marriage ceremonies next Friday (Feb. 14) are now being accepted.

Valentine’s Day ceremony reservations are available that day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the main office in Oakland (1106 Madison St.) and the Dublin satellite office (7600 Dublin Blvd.)

“We are always excited about Valentine’s Day at our office,” chief clerk-recorder Matt Yankee told the Weekly, adding there haven’t been any wedding reservations yet for the Dublin office, where only three marriages took place last year. “Often the appointments often come in rather last minute.”

Due to facility limitations, the Tri-Valley satellite office off Dublin Boulevard--which faces an inner courtyard and has limited space--only conducts marriage ceremonies on Valentine’s Day. Ceremonies are held in the “charming” outdoor courtyard and indoor accommodations are also available; a specially furnished Wedding Room is open for use at the Oakland office.

Couples who wish to make reservations for a Valentine’s Day wedding ceremony should obtain a marriage license by Feb. 11. Marriage licenses are sold at both offices and cost $75; appointments can be made when purchasing the license or by calling the Clerk-Recorder’s office: (510) 272-6362. Each appointment lasts about 20 minutes.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
