One-hour Weddings

One-hour Weddings

Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the Department of Public Health has issued a directive and ordered a Shelter in Place, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until 11:59pm on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. As such, all weddings and events are postponed through April 30. Clients with previous reservations will have priority when we begin taking reservations again. This is subject to change and we will update this website as appropriate. Please contact your event coordinator if you would like to reschedule your event or request a refund.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we do our part to ensure the health and safety of our residents, guests and employees and help slow the spread of COVID-19. Take care of yourselves.

 

To accommodate simple ceremonies and modest budgets, City Hall offers a One-hour Wedding package.

Please see our One-Hour Wedding Availability Calendar to determine a few potential dates for your ceremony before you call our office to place one complimentary hold.

Our package includes private use of either the Mayor’s Balcony or a Fourth Floor Gallery for up to one-hour from Monday through Friday, with the earliest ceremony beginning at 9:00 am and the latest beginning at 3:00 pm.

Rental cost for the package is $1,000, which includes an hour of access for up to 100 guests. Chairs are an additional equipment rental, with the Mayor’s Balcony seating up to 40 and the Fourth Floor Galleries up to 60 (remaining guests stand for the ceremony).

Due to time constraints, food and beverage service is not possible. Acoustic music may be played with advance approval, and musicians must be selected from our qualified list.

The use of chuppahs requires advance approval and chuppahs must be hand-supported. Due to fire safety guidelines, freestanding chuppahs are not permitted.

The One-hour Wedding package includes insurance and basic building services.

Please note that City Hall is open to the public during our One-hour Weddings, and that we do not provide an officiant or manage marriage licenses and certificates.
