Stanislaus County Clerk/Recorder/Commissioner of Civil Marriages Lee Lundrigan and her staff invite engaged couples to join them as they perform marriage ceremonies on Valentine’s Day at the historic McHenry Mansion located at 906 15th St., in Modesto. “Marriage at the Mansion” offers each couple a romantic experience that will take them back in time.
All ceremonies are individualized. Couples must sign up in advance. Ceremonies will start at 9 a.m. and run through 4 p.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017 – Valentine’s Day. Marriage licenses must be purchased and appointments made in advance at the Clerk Recorder’s Office located at 1021 I St., in downtown Modesto. Cost of the license and ceremony is $121 or $126 for confidential marriage licenses. Certified marriage certificates are an additional $15 and must be paid by check. No blood test is required.
“Romantic couples planning to tie the knot in 2017 should reserve their Valentine’s Day wedding without delay,” stated Lundrigan. “Valentine’s Day may seem a long way off, but for couples planning their wedding it’s just around the corner and if they would like to get married on the most romantic day of the year, they should contact our office as soon as possible.”
This is the sixth wedding event the County Clerk has conducted at the McHenry Mansion since 2003.
The non-religious civil ceremonies will be conducted in English or Spanish by Lundrigan, her staff and invited deputy marriage commissioners. Guests are limited to 15 for each wedding, and children must be age 12 or older to attend in the Mansion.
The Mansion Gift Shop will be open with a Valentine theme; and local businesses are donating gifts. Wedding photos can be purchased. There is no flash photography permitted in the Mansion to preserve the valuable antiques.
