Clerk Bock offers couples unique opportunity to wed in historic courtroom

All spaces have been filled at the Historic Courthouse for 12/12/12 ceremonies.

Couples may still get married at our regular courthouse locations on 12/12/12. Please call 561-355-2986 for more information.


WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (November 20, 2012) – The date won’t come around again for another century, and Clerk Sharon Bock wants to celebrate December 12, 2012 by giving couples the chance to exchange vows that day in the courtroom of Palm Beach County’s Historic Courthouse.

“This is the last time this century that couples can have a wedding date like this,” Clerk Bock said. “Getting married in the courtroom of Palm Beach County’s Historic Courthouse is a way to make the day even more special for couples who choose to get married with us on 12/12/12.”

Clerk Bock will personally perform some of the ceremonies on 12/12/12, starting at noon. Ceremonies will be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Historic Courthouse, 300 N. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach.

Space will be limited for the Historic Courthouse weddings. Couples are asked to pre-register by calling (561) 355-2468 no later than December 7.

Couples who want to get married at the historic courthouse on December 12 must have a valid Florida marriage license and pay the $30 ceremony fee. Couples also have the option of purchasing the full Clerk & Comptroller’s “Sensible Start” Wedding Package – which includes the cost of a marriage license, the ceremony fee, photos and a commemorative certificate – for less than $150.

More information about marriage licenses and ceremonies is available on the Marriage Licenses and Ceremonies page of www.mypalmbeachclerk.com.



The Florida Constitution established the independent office of the Clerk & Comptroller as a public trustee, responsible for safeguarding public records and public funds. Clerk Sharon Bock is directly elected by and accountable to Palm Beach County residents.  In addition to the roles of Clerk of the Circuit Court, County Recorder and Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners, the Clerk & Comptroller is the Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Auditor for Palm Beach County.
