For couples looking to get married on Valentine’s Day, consider a romantic ceremony inside the picturesque and his­toric John Muir House in Mar­tinez.

In partnership with the Na­tional Park Service, the Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder will host weddings inside the John Muir House from 10:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. on Feb. 14. There are 16 appointments available for this “Destination Wedding” oppor­tunity.

In September, the county of­fered “Destination Weddings” at the scenic Rosie the Riveter/ WWII Home Front Historic Park in Richmond.

“We are excited to once again partner with the Na­tional Park Service and the staff of the John Muir National Historic Site to give couples this memorable opportunity on Valentine’s Day,” Clerk- Recorder Joe Canciamilla said in a statement today.

Weddings will be held in­side one of the well-decorated rooms of the Italianate Victori­an-style home built in 1882.

“The room features an el­egant chandelier, grand piano and a stunning backdrop for the ceremony with an archway in front of a window overlook­ing the property,” county offi­cials said.

Couples interested in a cer­emony at the John Muir House should call (925) 335-7900 or go to www.contracostacore.us and click on the “Make a Cer­emony Appointment” button.

Couples can also make ap­pointments to have their Valen­tine’s Day wedding ceremony at the Contra Costa Clerk-Re­corder Office, at 555 Escobar Street in Martinez. Appoint­ment times are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Walk-in couples are welcome and will be ac­commodated based on avail­ability of ceremony rooms, although appointments are rec­ommended as space on Valen­tine’s Day fills quickly.
