Los Angeles lovebirds hoping to tie the knot on Valentine's Day are in luck — county officials are now taking appointments for the big day.

For the first time, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk is accepting appointments to handle the influx of interest in Valentine's Day wedding ceremonies. Each of the county clerk's six offices also will offer ceremonies.

"We implemented this system to accommodate the demand," Dean Logan, the county's registrar-recorder/county clerk, said in a statement. "We have seen significant interest in this special day."

Those wanting to make appointments must complete an online marriage license application and bring a confirmation page and $90 license fee to one of the county clerk offices. An additional $25 fee is required to schedule the appointment.

Of course, scheduling the appointment is only the first step. Those wanting a Feb. 14 anniversary date still have to show up — with a marriage license and valid photo ID.
