“It was my honor to conduct my first two same-sex marriage ceremonies,” said Foster, one of which was done in none other than Harvey Milk Park Equality Plaza. “I look forward to officiating many more as my schedule will allow.”

Beginning today and lasting until July 12, the City Clerk Department will provide civil marriage ceremonies from 10AM to 3PM, Monday through Friday. Thereafter, from July 18 to August 29, civil marriages will be limited to every Thursday from 10AM to 3PM.

All couples must provide a valid marriage license, obtained through the County Clerk’s Office (the nearest is in Norwalk), as well as receipt for fees paid. If you wish to have your ceremony held in Long Beach, you must do so through the County Registrar when your license has been issued.

For those wishing to have Mayor Foster officiate their ceremony, call (562) 570-6801. Mayor Foster’s availability will be based on his schedule.

For more information, call (562) 570-6101.
