SAN ANTONIO – Downtown San Antonio was filled with love at the stroke of midnight on Valentine’s Day.

- 10 a.m. - The Last Straw Florist flower shop will donate roses to the first 50 couples.
- Noon - United States Postal Service Postmaster Robert D. Carr Jr. will unveil the 50th anniversary of the Love Stamp and the Main Plaza Conservancy will donate roses and a photo booth.
- 2 p.m. - The Main Plaza Conservancy will donate roses and a photo booth.
Couples must get their marriage licenses 72 hours before their ceremonies unless they meet certain criteria listed here.
While the ceremonies are free, people are asked to make a $20 donation to the Battered Women and Children’s Shelter and the Bexar County Family Justice Center.
