Back by popular demand, the Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder is offering a special venue this spring for couples who wish to exchange wedding vows atop the summit of Mount Diablo. In partnership with the California State Department of Parks and Recreation, the County Clerk-Recorder will officiate weddings at the iconic site from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on Friday, May 24th.

There are only 16 appointments available for this spring "Destination Wedding" event. Last year's event filled up quickly, as couples took advantage of the unique wedding experience.

Weddings will be held on the summit's observation deck, with a dramatic backdrop of Contra Costa's rolling hills. On a clear day, the summit offers a view of San Francisco, the Sierras and beyond.

Couples interested in having their ceremony at the summit of Mount Diablo must make an appointment. Ceremonies can be scheduled online here!

The civil marriage ceremony fee is $60. Couples can obtain a public marriage license for $86 or a confidential license for $90 from the Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder in Martinez. A marriage license may be issued from a different county in California, but must be presented to the Clerk's office when the ceremony is purchased. The Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder holds Destination Weddings each season at unique and picturesque locations throughout the county.
