Love is in the air in Dawson County.


Dawson County Magistrate Court will kick off Valentine weekend with free marriage and vow renewal ceremonies at the Historic Dawson County Courthouse.


Make your special event part of history by holding your wedding or vow renewal ceremony on Feb. 12 in the oldest working courthouse in Georgia. Judges will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


The courthouse will feature décor for the occasion and light refreshments will be served.


Bring your camera to capture the momentous occasion.


“Last year we performed 15 individual Valentine weddings and vow renewals,” said Chief Magistrate Judge Lisa Thurmond. “We encourage couples to call early.”


A marriage license from probate court is required for new marriages. No license is required for vow renewals.
