​Clerk White to join hearts on Valentine’s Day

Annual event held to raise money for the American Heart Association

INDIANAPOLIS – Marion County Clerk Beth White will perform civil marriage ceremonies from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14 to raise money for the American Heart Association’s ‘Go Red for Women’ campaign.
For the sixth year in a row, the Clerk’s office will be transformed into a wedding ‘chapel’ for couples in search of a simple civil ceremony on Valentine’s Day. In lieu of an officiant’s fee, couples are asked to make a $50 contribution to the American Heart Association. Since 2007, the event has raised nearly $9,000 and 202 couples have been married.
Couples must present a valid marriage license to marry. To apply for a marriage license in Marion County, either the bride or the groom must be a resident and show proof of residency. The license fee is $18 for Marion County residents. Hoosier couples living outside Marion County should apply for their license in their home county, even if they intend to marry in Indianapolis.
Space is limited. Couples can make a reservation by calling (317) 327-4740. For more information, visit
