Leap into love this Leap Day

SAN DIEGO – San Diego Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk Jordan Marks will offer more love on Leap Day this year and welcome walk-in weddings across San Diego County for couples seeking to “take the leap” and be married on this unique day.

A leap year is a calendar year that contains an additional day and only occurs every four years. This year, Leap Day falls on Thursday, Feb. 29 and four County Clerk offices offering marriage license and civil ceremony services will welcome walk-ins and waive the appointment requirement for couples taking a leap into love on Leap Day.

Couples wishing to “take the leap” or renew their wedding vows should schedule their appointment now on the award-winning website as they are filling up quickly. Appointments are highly recommended; however, walk-in customers are also welcome at four County Clerk locations including Chula Vista, Downtown San Diego, San Marcos and Santee.

Marks commented, “Leap Day only comes every four years, and my County Clerk office will offer more love by welcoming walk-ins for couples seeking to leap into love and be married on this memorable day.” Marks joked, “If they get married on a leap day some hope they only have to remember their anniversary every four years, but being married on such a memorable date will make their wedding all the more special.”

The Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk Offices will be open on Feb. 29 at 8 a.m. with the last appointment at 5 p.m. for marriage licenses and civil ceremonies. Walk-ins are welcome between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Couples wanting to get married on this special day can choose between appointments for the indoor ceremony room or the outdoor wedding venue.

Appointments can be made online at or by calling 619-237-0502. The cost of a non-confidential marriage license is $129. For an additional $107, the couples may have their ceremonies performed by one of the County staff in English or Spanish.
