AKRON, Ohio — Some couples prefer a warm summer wedding on a beach or at a country club.

Others are perfectly happy saying their vows on the final day of October inside a historic theater with local news cameras rolling.

Couples are saying "I do" inside Akron's Civic Theatre Thursday, an annual tradition made possible by Akron Municipal Court.

Akron Municipal Court Judge Ron Cable will perform weddings from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Couples interested in tying the knot must have a marriage license from Summit County Probate Court and pay a cash fee at the Akron Municipal Court Clerk's Office. The fee is $25 for Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Richfield, Springfield Township, Lakemore and Summit County Mogadore residents. The cost is $40 for those who live outside the court's jurisdiction. After paying the fee, couples should take their receipt to the Stubbs building to scheduled a ceremony time slot.

Sixteen couples were married during last year's ceremonies.
