CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — Whenever Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday, a Harrison County, West Virginia, judge presides over happy couples instead of defendants and plaintiffs.
Circuit Court Judge Thomas A. Bedell holds a group wedding ceremony on Feb. 14 for couples who want to participate. This year’s noon ceremony will mark the 12th time he has held the event.
“Part of the fun is just to see who shows up at 12 o’clock on Feb. 14,” Bedell told The Exponent Telegram.
