The county’s wedding wizard will be open late Monday, June 16, when the new California allowing same-sex marriages law is set to kick in. To absorb the anticipated flood of same-sex couples the Clerk-Recorder Patrick O’Connell says his office will offer extended hours, from 5:01 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the 16th.
The Clerk-Recorder’s Office is located at 1106 Madison Street, Oakland. Appointments for marriage ceremonies the week of June 16 are encouraged and can be made by calling (510) 272-6362 between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please allow at least 30 minutes for issuance of a marriage license prior to the scheduled appointment. The Clerk-Recorder’s Office includes a specially furnished Wedding Room where weddings are performed by staff and volunteer wedding commissioners.
