Denver Marriage License desk gears up to issue marriage licenses and gifts to Valentine couples
(Denver) – “Miluju tě,” “te quiero,” “Я тебя люблю,” and “je t’aime,” are just a few of the ways to say “I love you!” that will be on display as the cupids in the Office of the Clerk and Recorder stage a friendly takeover of Lincoln’s Birthday Friday, Feb. 12. for couples who come in to obtain their marriage licenses on the last business day before Valentines Day.
Gifts donated by a number of Denver’s agencies and departments and by local merchants will be awarded to selected couples obtaining marriage licenses, and the office will be decorated in a Valentine theme, including a heart-shaped wreath, multilingual declarations of love and a new set of decorated wedding columns, between which couples can take their pictures. There will also be refreshments served and romantic movies shown in our “Sweetheart Bistro” (known on other days as the Clerk and Recorder conference room).
One lucky couple will receive a special gift from Denver’s Theaters and Arenas: tickets to the Colorado Symphony Orchestra’s Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2, and a gift certificate for dinner before the show. Another couple will receive a free overnight stay at the Oxford Hotel and a gift certificate for dinner. There will also be other giveaways during the day.
“The Friday before Valentine’s Day has been a popular day for weddings, and the Office of the Clerk and Recorder generally sees about twice the usual number of applicants for a Valentine’s Day wedding,” states Denver Clerk and Recorder Stephanie O’Malley. “I’d like to thank the city agencies and local merchants who will help make this a special day for our couples.”
The Office of the Clerk and Recorder’s Marriage License Counter is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is located just inside the Court Place entrance to the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building located at 201 W. Colfax Ave.
The four languages of “I love you” in the first sentence of this release are: Czech, Spanish, Russian and French.
