The season of hearts, flowers and love is almost here. What will you do this year in the Santa Clarita Valley to celebrate Valentine’s Day?
The Big I Do
The city of Santa Clarita has the perfect party planned for those seeking to “tie the knot” on Valentine’s Day, or those thinking of renewing their vows.
The second The Big I Do wedding ceremony at City Hall will be hosted by City Hall Ceremonies on Wednesday, Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day.
“We had so much fun as a group putting on this event last year, we are very excited to be able to do it again this year,” said City Clerk Mary Cusick.
City Hall Ceremonies holds weddings every Wednesday.
“It is the best day of my work week,” said Cusick. “Every couple is different, some come dressed to the nines, others come in flipflops, some couples cry during the ceremony and I cry with them, or they laugh. I am just grateful to be part of it.”
Couples who participate in this this year’s Valentines Day event will have the opportunity to receive special gifts and participate in drawings courtesy of community sponsors.
This unique wedding experience will have multiple couples getting married at the same time, followed by a lavish wedding reception. Brides will walk down the aisle and can be given away by someone if they wish.
Couples will enjoy a bride’s room to finish getting ready, catered brunch, beautiful décor, floral arrangements, wedding cakes, a DJ, photographer, photo booths and dancing.
Jill’s Cake Creations will furnish the wedding cakes for couples to cut.
Registered couples have a chance to win custom wedding bands, a bridal headpiece and a seven-night Princess Cruise.
One lucky couple will be the honeymoon cruise presented by Princess Cruises, valued at $3,000.
To qualify for the cruise, couples must be registered for The Big I Do by Jan. 31 and exchange vows at the event on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14. Entrants will share their love story through a one-minute video on the city’s website, (deadline 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31.) Voting on the videos will be held Feb. 5-12 with the winner announced at the wedding reception on Feb. 14.
