DENVER (CBS4) – The City of Denver continued its tradition of free wedding ceremonies on Valentine’s Day.
For the eleventh year, judges helped celebrate the happy couples on Wednesday.
Debra Johnson, Denver’s Clerk and Recorder, said a record-setting 103 couples tied the knot.
“What an amazing day it was,” Johnson said. “To have a chance to be part of that much love is so beautiful for everyone in my office.
The Denver Clerk and Recorder’s Office provided the weddings for free. However, you will still have to pay $30 for the marriage license itself.
The married couples were also be treated to some food, drinks and a chance to win gifts from local businesses.
“We can’t thank the sponsors enough for helping make their wedding day special for so many people,” Johnson added. “Local businesses donated gift certificates; other elected officials and City and County of Denver agencies donated gifts.”
Judges and clergy volunteered their time to perform the ceremonies for the loving couples.
Last year, a few dozen couples took advantage of this event and wed on Valentine’s Day.
