County to hold wedding ‘scare-amonies’ on Halloween

The Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder shared this image of one of the wedding 'scare-amonies' it has hosted on Halloween.

You could be married by a witch, pirate, zombie, the Little Mermaid or Rosie the Riveter.

The Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder is inviting couples to consider getting married by costumed officiants at its Martinez office on Halloween.

The event has become a fun annual tradition where, from 8:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., couples can choose costumed officiants to preside over their wedding “scare-amony.”

The list of characters will become available on Halloween. Additionally, Halloween-themed decor will be inside the office and one of the Clerk-Recorder ceremony rooms. For those seeking a traditional ceremony, Deputy Commissioners in classic robes will also be available.

The Halloween-themed weddings became an annual tradition in 2013.

“We try to offer special venues to give our couples an experience they’ll never forget,” Clerk-Recorder Joe Canciamilla said. “It’s going to be a wickedly good time.”
