For people in love with another human and cars, the Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder’s Office has a special Valentine’s Day deal. The office will host a “Destination Weddings” event at the Martinez Cobra Museum for Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2023.

Sixteen marriage ceremonies will be performed at the museum by county clerk’s staff between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Couples may have up to 20 guests to witness their ceremony.

“The Clerk’s office is thrilled to be able to offer a new venue for our destination weddings program,” Assistant Clerk-Recorder Elizabeth Gutierrez said. “The Martinez Cobra Museum offers a romantic atmosphere for the ceremony and it also gives couples a beautiful photo opportunity with one of America’s most legendary cars.” The clerk’s office said in a statement the museum is “a hidden gem in Martinez.”

Located at 777 Arnold Dr., the Cobra Experience is a non-profit museum committed to the promotion, conservation, education, and preservation of the cars produced by Shelby American, offering one-of-a-kind exhibits.

Because of the event’s popularity, only a few appointments for this destination wedding event are available, according to the clerk’s office. Couples must purchase a license before their ceremony appointment at the clerk-recorder’s office in Martinez. The fee for a public marriage license is $86, while a confidential license is $90. The civil marriage ceremony fee is $60.
