Gwinnett County offers marriage ceremony for the ages in honor of Bicentennial

If you’re looking to get married soon, very soon, in honor of Gwinnett County’s Bicentennial Celebrations, the Gwinnett County is offering a wedding ceremony for the ages. But you will need to be ready to get married in less than a month.

At exactly 1:18 p.m. on Jan. 18, 2018, Gwinnett County is offering a special, historically themed mass wedding ceremony. It will take place in the original courtroom at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse and the ceremony will be performed by Chief Magistrate Kristina Hammer Blum and Probate Judge Christopher Ballar. They will be dressed in early 1800’s attire.

If this is the marriage ceremony for you, there is no cost for the ceremony and each couple can bring a maximum of six guests for the ceremony. All brides and grooms just have to provide a marriage license from a Georgia Probate Court; no out-of-state weddings will be performed. So if a period wedding is something that you feel is how you would like to get married next month, you have to register by Jan. 5 and start preparing for the big day. You can register by calling 770.822.5450. The Gwinnett Historic Courthouse is located at 185 Crogan Street, Lawrenceville.

You can follow up the ceremony at a reception and the brides, grooms and their guests from the wedding  are invited to celebrate at a historically themed reception at a cost of $15 a person. This will take place in the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse Superior Court Ballroom. The price includes a first dance, wedding cupcake, light refreshments and a wedding keepsake. Brides, grooms and guests need to also preregister for this event by Jan. 5 and can do so by calling 770-822-5450.
