Over 250 couples will wed in a special Valentine’s Day marriage celebration at San Francisco’s historic City Hall on Tuesday, February 14, 2023.

City Administrator Carmen Chu and the Office of the County Clerk invite couples to celebrate their love and tie the knot at a special Valentine’s Day marriage celebration at San Francisco City Hall.

On Valentine’s Day, the Office of the County Clerk will perform 250 marriage ceremonies, more than double the number of marriages typically performed in a single day.

Want to watch the weddings?
According to a press release by the Office of the Mayor, the best time to check out the weddings is between 11am and 1pm in the North Light Court (this was intended for the media, but there doesn’t seem to be any restrictions on the public that we’re aware of), but please note that space might be very limited and all entrants into city hall are subject to security screenings.

Each couple will receive a long-stem rose, candy, and a special Valentine’s Day Souvenir Marriage Certificate. Couples and their wedding parties will enjoy festive decorations and a free Valentine’s-themed photobooth in the North Light Court.

This annual event highlights both the great diversity of couples who travel from across the globe to marry at City Hall and San Francisco’s Deputy Marriage Commissioner Program. Now in its 31st year, the Office of the County Clerk’s Deputy Marriage Commissioner Program trains and deputizes volunteers to officiate marriage ceremonies. During this celebration, 22 Deputy Marriage Commissioners will be on-site to accommodate the high volume of marriages.
