Akron Municipal Court Judge Ron Cable, Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Partner To Host Weddings
05/15/2024

Akron Municipal Court Judge Ron Cable is partnering with the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad to host wedding opportunities for area couples on Tuesday, June 11, 2024 from 1:00 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Further details are listed below:

  • Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad’s Akron Northside Station | 27 Ridge St. in Akron
    • Tuesday, June 11, 2024 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
    • This is an outdoor venue with a covered waiting station.
    • Judge who will be officiating ceremonies: Judge Ron Cable

If a couple wishes to invite friends or family to witness the ceremony, we ask that the total number of guests be limited to ten guests or less than ten guests.

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 located at 172 S. Broadway St. in Downtown Akron between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The fee is based on where the couple resides and whether it is in the court’s jurisdiction, which includes Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Richfield, Springfield Township, Lakemore and the Summit County portion of Mogadore. The fee is $35 for those in the court’s jurisdiction and $50 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. 

Weddings are also being planned at the Akron Municipal Courthouse in Downtown Akron on various dates throughout the year. These can be scheduled by calling the Service Bailiffs’ Office at (330) 375-2592.
