Free Valentine’s Eve Wedding Ceremonies by Hennepin Judges

Fourteen Fourth Judicial District judges invite couples to register for free wedding ceremonies on Valentine’s Eve, over the noon hour. 

“As a bench, we wanted to help celebrate the holiday in a unique way – and to help people easily remember their anniversaries in the future," said Honorable William Koch. "This was a fun event for us, and allowed us to give a little back to our military members and first responders, as well as general members of the public.”

For registration information, please visit the Fourth Judicial District website.
