San Marcos, CA -The San Diego County Assessor-Recorder-County Clerk (ARCC) has announced that a limited number of appointments are now available for couples to obtain a marriage license and get married in a wedding ceremony on Valentine’s Day, Wed., Feb. 14, at one of five ARCC offices in San Diego County, including the San Marcos branch office at 141 East Carmel St.

Jordon Marks, a countywide elected official who serves as county commissioner of civil marriages in his role as San Diego County Assessor-Recorder-County Clerk (ARCC), said Valentine’s Day is historically one of the busiest and most-sought-after days of the year for same-day marriage licensing and civil ceremonies.

“Valentine’s Day is a favorite day to tie the knot and say `I do’ because it can be easily remembered as a memorable milestone for many future decades,” Marks said. “My office is ready to help hundreds of local couples celebrate their romance and commitment to each other with a special, magical marriage service.”

The ARCC office is responsible for issuing marriage licenses, birth and death certificates, as well as registering business names and recording all legal real estate documents. On average, the office provides nearly 25,000 marriage licenses and performs more than 11,000 weddings annually. The office also oversees assessing the value of real estate and personal property, which in San Diego includes planes and boats. Property taxes constitute the largest share of revenue for the county.

Valentine’s Day appointments for marriage licenses and wedding ceremonies can be reserved between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at any of the five ARCC offices, including Chula Vista, San Marcos, Santee, Kearny Mesa and the ARCC Downtown San Diego headquarters at the County Administration Center (CAC), 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego.

Walk-in appointments will be available only at the Downtown CAC location, which also offers indoor ceremony rooms or a picturesque, outdoor marriage arbor on the waterfront.

To make an appointment, visit www.sdarcc.gov, or call (619) 237-0502.

Cost for a non-confidential marriage license is $129. Cost for an ARCC staff member to perform the ceremony is an additional $107. Ceremonies can be conducted in English or Spanish. 

The San Diego County Assessor-Recorder-County Clerk (ARCC) Office, with more than 450 employees, operates five offices in San Diego County. Marks, who serves as San Diego County ARCC, was elected to a four year term in November 2022. For more information, visit www.sdarcc.gov.
