Couples applying for Denver marriage licenses will receive romantic reception
(Denver) – Valentine’s Day remains a popular day for sweethearts to tie the knot, and the cupids at the Denver Clerk and Recorder’s marriage license desk will make it sweet for couples who come in on Tuesday, February 14 to obtain a marriage license.
The office will be decorated in this year’s Valentines theme of “A Hundred Hearts Would Be Too Few, to Carry All My Love for You.” The “Sweetheart Bistro” (known on other days as the Clerk and Recorder conference room) will feature refreshments and gifts for the couples, and an opportunity to have their pictures taken in front of a romantic backdrop of wedding pillars.
A variety of local organizations, businesses, and city agencies have shown the Valentine’s Day spirit by donating a variety of gifts for the couples. One lucky couple will receive an overnight stay at the Oxford Hotel. Other gifts include passes to local cultural institutions, a bowling party at the Lucky Strike Lanes, and a mystery gift to be presented to one couple sometime during the day.
As a special added attraction, a quartet from Denver’s Sound of the Rockies Barbershop Chorus will drop in to present a singing Valentine during the afternoon and Senior Court Judge Herbert Galchinsky will be available for the greater part of the day for any couples who want to tie the knot on the spot.
The Office of the Clerk and Recorder’s marriage license counter is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with licenses issued up to 4:30 p.m. It is located just inside the Court Place entrance to the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave.
