Free weddings offered Tuesday

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Romance will be in the air at the county courthouse this Valentine's Day.

Continuing an annual tradition, Gwinnett's Magistrate Court judges will perform free wedding ceremonies Tuesday to commemorate the holiday of love.

The ceremonies, including vow renewals for those who have already tied the knot, will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse on the Lawrenceville Square.

Couples must have a valid marriage license to make the wedding ceremony official.

To obtain a license, the bride and groom must bring a valid photo ID and birth certificate to the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center. Licenses will not be available at the historic courthouse. More information is available by calling 770-822-8250.
