The Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder Division is set to marry couples at the scenic Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front Historic Park on the Richmond waterfront as part of its “Destination Weddings” program.
On Friday, Sept. 7, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., couples will have the chance to exchange wedding vows before Clerk-Recorder officiants. Weddings on that day will be held along the Lucretia Edwards Shoreline, with a dramatic backdrop of San Francisco Bay, the San Francisco and Oakland skylines and views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge.
The one-time opportunity, offering just 33 appointments, is being done in partnership with the National Parks Service.
“Couples can experience their special day by having some of the most beautiful views in the Bay Area,” Clerk-Recorder Joe Canciamilla said.
Tom Leatherman, superintendent of the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front Historical Park, called it “an inspiring start for these newly joined couples, much as the groundbreaking efforts made by women and minorities during World War II inspired our nation.”
