AKRON — The Akron Municipal Court has partnered with four local venues to offer outdoor weddings for couples. The selected local venues are Springfield Township’s Springfield Lake Gazebo, the Akron Art Museum’s Bud and Susie Rogers Garden, the Summit County Historical Society’s Mutton Hill, and the Hower House Museum’s South Lawn.

“Love doesn’t take a break because there is a pandemic. Performing wedding ceremonies is such a fun aspect of being a Judge. I am grateful we are able to partner with these venues to provide a memorable experience for area couples,” said Ron Cable, Administrative/Presiding Judge.

Ahead of the ceremony, couples must get a marriage license from Summit County Probate Court and pay a cash-only ceremony fee at the Akron Municipal Court in the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center, located at 217 S. High St. in Downtown Akron at 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday.

The ceremony will cost $25 for couples residing in the court’s jurisdiction (Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Richfield, Springfield Township, Lakemore and the Summit County portion of Mogador), and $40 for those residing outside the jurisdiction.

The wedding appointments are first-come, first-serve, meaning that arrangements are made based on prior requests. It’s essential to set the date as soon as possible as the additional time slots will not be added when the venue has reached its appointment quota.

Among the scheduled events, the Springfield Township’s Springfield Lake Gazebo, located at 491 Canfield Rd. (Near Route 224) in Akron, held outdoor weddings on Friday, May 21, 2021.

On Tuesday, June 8, 2021, ceremonies will be held in Akron Art Museum’s Bud and Susie Rogers Garden at 1 S. High St. in Downtown Akron starting from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
