Good news, lovebirds. The Orange County Clerk-Recorder has extended hours on Valentine’s Day, Friday the 14th, for wedding ceremonies at its three offices: from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Santa Ana, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Laguna Hills and Fullerton. Plus, free courthouse parking!
Christina Aguilar, left, has seen sweet as well as bizarre weddings in her years of officiating ceremonies at the Old Courthouse [see Trade Secrets, February 2013]; Daniel Gutierrez has succeeded her. And just in case you weren’t aware, California does not recognize the partner you’ve been living with for the past seven years as your common-law spouse. Make it legal—and make your reservation now at 714-834-2500, or ocrecorder.com because Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days to get hitched.
