The Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder is bringing back Halloween weddings this year, asking residents in a recent statement, “Have you ever considered being married by a fictional character or a bucket of popcorn?”
County couples have the chance to have their Halloween wedding officiated by a costumed staff member.
“Past costumes have included witches, pirates, zombies, Disney princesses, fairy tale lasses, historic figures and many more,” the Clerk-Recorder said.
In addition to the unique officiant option, one of the ceremony rooms will be decorated and there will be some holiday-themed decor inside the office. The Clerk-Recorder staff will have some other tricks and treats for visitors as well. Deputy commissioners in classic robes will also be available to perform ceremonies.
Clerk-Recorder Joe Canciamilla said it’s one way his office tries to offer memorable experiences for local couples.
“We try to offer special venues to give our couples an experience they’ll never forget,” he said.
Also, a ceremony room will be decorated for the occasion, there will be holiday-themed decor in the office, and treats will be offered to visitors.
For those not interested in a themed ceremony, deputy commissioners in classic robes will also be available.
Ceremonies start at 8:30 am and are held until 3:30 pm. To make a wedding appointment or for more information, visit www.contracostacore.us.
