The latest update to this page was February 10, 2004.
Because of the bankruptcy situation with Penn Traffic, I will not be holding the Valentine's Day event at Big Bear this year.
Instead, I will be offering an elopement ceremony in my home for couples who want a small and inexpensive ceremony.
This will not be anything elaborate. Because the ceremonies are being performed in my home, I request that you bring no
more than 2 guests (witnesses are not required in Ohio).Click here for
directions to my home.
I will perform elopmement ceremonies all day Friday, February 13, and Saturday, February 14. The cost is only $50.00.
I will perform my elopement ceremony as shown here. Performing
a different ceremony will be $10.00 additional. If you want to reserve your time, I ask that you pay in advance. This
payment is non-refundable. Walk-ins may pay at the time of the ceremony.
If you want a minister to come to your home or any other location, I do have associates who are available. Please
contact met and I will arrange for one of my associate ministers to help you.
Note: The courthouse will be closed on February 14, so you must get your license on or before the
13th!!! The court will be very busy on the 13th, so I suggest you save yourself some time and fill out the online
application. Click here for
the marriage license application and for other details on obtaining a marriage license in Franklin county.
Or call the 24-hour recording: 614-462-3898.
Reservations are accepted ONLY on the quarter-hour. Ceremonies and paperwork take about 5-7 minutes.
That leaves ample time each hour for walk-ins. If you don't have or don't want a reservation, PLEASE DO
come by and get married!
