2/8/2021 - Town Clerk Andrew Raia to Make House Calls for Valentine’s Day Marriage Ceremony Marathon

Huntington – In light of COVID-19 restrictions, Huntington Town Clerk Andrew P. Raia will be making house calls to perform the Town's first Marriage Ceremony Marathon at happy couples’ homes on Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14, 2021.

 

“We’re not going to let COVID get in the way of true love and this long-held tradition,” commented Mr. Raia. “I will be making house calls this Valentine’s Day as the Town’s Marriage Officer and I will continue performing outdoor marriage ceremonies as I have for the past year during business hours at Town Hall.”

 

 

For further information or if you would like to make an appointment, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at (631) 351-3216 or email araia@huntingtonny.gov. Please note:

 

  • Marriage Ceremonies: A marriage ceremony may only take place after 24 hours issuance of a marriage license, the deadline for a marriage license application for a Valentine’s Day ceremony is Thursday, February 11 (more information, Town Hall is closed Friday, February 12 in observance of President Lincoln’s Birthday); vow renewals do not require a waiting period.
  • Domestic Partnership Registry: Find more information on requirements for a Domestic Partnership Registry.

 

In prior years, the tradition, started by former Town Clerk Jo-Ann Raia, transformed the Town Board Room into a wonderful tribute to “Love’s Greatest Holiday,” with marriage ceremonies performed throughout the day with donations from local merchants including bakeries, florists, supermarkets, pharmacies and photographers.
