Akron Municipal Court Offering More Fun & Unique Places To Say "I Do" In June Featured

Written by

If you're looking for a picturesque and cost-effective way to tie the knot next month; look no further than Akron Municipal Court.

They're once again taking marriage to the people, by offering ceremonies in off-site locations. 

On Wednesday, June 13th, you can exchange vows outside at the Towpath Tennis Center on Akron-Penninsula Road, and if you would prefer an inside venue—say "I Do" in downtown Akron at the BLU-Tique Hotel, on Friday, June 16th. 

You won't be able to have whole lot of friends and family with you though, as they are asking couples to limit their guest list to 10 or less.

Appointments are first-come, first-served and must be scheduled and paid for before the date of the ceremony. Time slots will not be added once all appointments are booked.

Prior to the ceremony, couples must obtain a marriage license from Summit County Probate Court. They then must pay a cash-only ceremony fee at the Akron Municipal Court in the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center, located at 217 S. High St. in Downtown Akron between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

 The fee is $25 for those in the court’s jurisdiction, Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Richfield, Springfield Township, Lakemore and the Summit County portion of Mogadore. There is a $40 fee for those residing outside the jurisdiction.

To make sure there is still space available; court officials suggest you contact the Akron Municipal Court’s Chief Service Bailiff, Patricia Williams, at (330) 375-2592 who can answer any questions you may have, before you get your marriage license.

Also, please note that if you were hoping to get married on Wednesday, May 31, 2023 at Springfield Township’s Springfield Lake Gazebo; all of those time slots have already been filled.
