For the second consecutive year, the Akron Municipal Court and the Akron Civic Theatre are granting area couples the opportunity to wed in a historical venue on February 14, Valentine’s Day.

Akron Municipal Court’s Administrative/Presiding Judge Jon Oldham and Akron Municipal Court Judge Ron Cable will officiate wedding ceremonies from 10 a.m. to Noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, February 14, 2019 at the Akron Civic Theatre, located at 182 S. Main St.

The Akron Civic Theatre has generously donated space for the event.

Appointments are first-come, first-served and must be scheduled and paid for before February 14. Time slots will not be added once all appointments are booked.  

Prior to the ceremony, couples must obtain a marriage license from Summit County Probate Court. They then must pay a cash-only ceremony fee at the Akron Municipal Court Clerk’s Office in Room 837 of the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center, located at 217 S. High St. The fee is $25 for those in the court’s jurisdiction, Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Richfield, Springfield Township, Lakemore and the Summit County portion of Mogadore. There is a $40 fee for those residing outside the jurisdiction.

After paying the fee, couples should take their receipt to Room 901 in the Stubbs building to secure a time slot.

The Akron Civic Theatre has requested couples use the Main Street entrance on the day of the ceremony. No professional photographers are permitted.
