Hoping to tie the knot on Valentine’s Day, but not sure how to pull it off on such short notice?
Pasco County Clerk & Comptroller Paula O’Neil might have the solution you’re after. She’s officiating a group wedding ceremony on the steps of the Pasco County Historic Courthouse in Dade City — not a short ride for New Tampa and Wesley Chapel residents — on Valentine’s Day. This is the fifth year O’Neil has offered the group ceremony.
"The tradition of marriage and the historic atmosphere of Dade City are a perfect match for a momentous occasion and a new beginning," O’Neil said previously. "We look forward to joining lives together among the historic trees and beautiful architecture."
Couples that want to take part need to be sure to register for their marriage licenses by Monday, Feb. 11, 2013. The cost of a license is $93.50 and there is a three-day waiting period for the license to be valid.
For more information on obtaining a license and what is required, visit the clerk’s office website. To find out more about the group ceremony, call 727-847-8086 or 352-521-4408.
The ceremony takes place at 37918 Meridian Ave. in Dade City. A time for the group event hasn’t been announced as of yet.
