WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Switch out the church bells for security checkpoint beeps. This is just part of getting married in a courthouse.

Which bride, Cheyenne Kan, says is a winning option.

“You don’t have to worry about as much, easy, fast, fun you can enjoy yourselves more.”

The Sedgwick County Courthouse surely had love in the air this Valentine’s Day. Numerous couples made their way to say “I do.”

For some it was a spur of the moment decision.

“The big wedding idea is kind of scary, and we just wanted to get it done with. We didn’t really plan it out. We just last-minute were like let’s go get it done,” said groom Dale Morgan.

For others like Terese and Howard Smith, it was planned for months. They decided to use this Valentine’s Day to tie the knot for their second time together.

“It’s special, he won’t forget the anniversary,” said Terese.

A wedding at the courthouse has perks other than marrying your love.
