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.

Spots are still available for the single day opportunity 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.”

To book your ceremony, go www.contracostacore.us. The civil marriage ceremony fee is $60. Couples can obtain a public marriage license for $86 or a confidential license for $90. The license must be obtained prior to the ceremony at the main office in Martinez.

Destinations Weddings are held on a quarterly basis at unique, picturesque locations throughout Contra Costa County.
