All the couples need to do is get their marriage license from the clerk's office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at a cost of $81.

"We've been wanting to do this, and should have done it a long time ago," one couple said.

The couples have 72 hours to get the certificate to make the marriage official.

Couples need to bring an ID and know their Social Security number for the ceremony.
