Normally, hundreds of couples would gather at the Bexar County courthouse to say their “I do’s”, but this year because of the pandemic things will be a little different in the year of 2021.
Priscilla Hernandez of the Bexar County Clerk’s Office said that the decision had been made in accordance with the city and county order of the COVID-19 health emergency order put in place by both Mayor Ron Nirenberg and County Judge Nelson Wolff.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t get married for free though. Honorable Bexar County Clerk Lucy Adame-Clark will still be doing free ceremonies but on the Friday before Valentine’s Day (February 12) from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.
COVID-19 safety protocols will be in effect such as wearing facial coverings and standing 6-feet apart from people not within your household. The ceremony will only conduct two people (a couple) at a time.
If you and your partner aren’t available that Friday, not to worry because Lucy Adame-Clark will be conducting free ceremonies through the month of February.
Those who are interested must make an appointment online for all wedding ceremonies. Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez will also be conducting ceremonies as well at no cost at the County Courthouse.
