Mayor Phil Kramer is hoping to turn the municipal building into “Wedding Central” on Valentine’s Day.

The mayor announced that he will be holding a “wedding clinic” in the building at 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., and hopes to marry at least a dozen couples in that time.

“It will be a little fast paced I guess, but what could be better than getting married on Valentine’s Day!” Kramer said in his statement. “It’s the best way I can think of to get as many people married on this special day as possible. I can’t wait to see a room full of brides and grooms in the Municipal lobby.”

Couples, witnesses and families will have their paperwork completed by township staff in the municipal bulding’s lobby. Then, on a first-come, first-served basis, they will be escorted to a private room for the five-minute ceremony. The newlyweds and their guests will then have a few minutes for pictures and congratulations as Kramer goes into another room to marry another couple.

Kramer will continue his tradition of donating his portion of each wedding fee – $50 – to Second Chance for Animals in support of the Franklin Township Animal Shelter.

While he said he hopes to marry a dozen couples, Kramer sad he “may stretch it to 15 if the demand is there.”

Couples must comply with state law and obtain their license in the towns of residence of either applicant at least 72 hours prior to the ceremony.

Anyone interested can begin the process by calling the Township Clerk’s office at (732) 873-2500, ext. 6208.
