Hower House Museum, 60 Fir Hill, on the University of Akron’s campus – 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Administrative/Presiding Judge Ron Cable will officiate the weddings.

  • This date was chosen to celebrate John Henry Hower’s 200th birthday and the special anniversary date of 2/22/22.


Thursday, March 17, 2022 (St. Patrick’s Day)
Musica, 51 E. Market St., Downtown Akron – 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Judge Nicole Walker will officiate the weddings.

In an effort to ensure the health and safety of all who are participating, couples and their guests will need to show a proof of vaccination (a vaccination card or the photo of one’s vaccination card) or a negative COVID-19 test (PCR and antigen tests will be accepted) taken within 48 hours from the time of the ceremony. Couples will be limited to six guests total.

Appointments are first-come, first-served and must be scheduled and paid for before the date of the ceremony. 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 in the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center, located at 217 S. High St. in Downtown Akron between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

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.

It is suggested to contact the Akron Municipal Court’s Chief Service Bailiff Patricia Williams at (330) 375-2592 to ensure space is still available before obtaining a marriage license or for any further questions regarding scheduling.
