San Diego County Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr., wants to make sure that all couples wishing to “tie the knot” or renew their wedding vows come to the historic County Administration Center for their wedding ceremony.
Ernie Dronenburg said, “We have decided to open our downtown location for walk-in services on Valentine’s Day to accommodate all those wanting to be married on this special occasion.”
The downtown San Diego office at 1600 Pacific Highway will be open from 8 am to 5 pm for licenses and ceremonies. Reservations can be made by calling 619-237-0502. Appointments are recommended and will receive priority, but will not be required on Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day 2014 (2/14/14) is an easy date to remember. The date falls on a Friday and comes before the three-day President’s Day weekend. This will likely mean a record breaking day for marriage licenses and ceremonies at the County.
The cost of a non-confidential marriage license is $70.00; a confidential marriage license is $89.00. If a couple would like to be married at the County Administration Center by enthusiastic County staff, the cost is an additional $88.00. Our office has witnesses available, if needed, for an $18.00 fee.
Marriage licenses and civil ceremonies are also available at the El Cajon (200 S. Magnolia Ave.), San Marcos (141 E. Carmel St.) and Chula Vista (590 Third Avenue) offices from 8 am to 4 pm. Appointments are required for these locations and can be made by calling (619) 237-0502.
