Whenever Valentine's Day falls on a weekday, a Harrison County judge presides over happy couples instead of defendants and plaintiffs.
Bedell tells The Exponent Telegram that part of the fun is seeing who shows up.
He says he started the group ceremony because of the large number of individual Valentine's Day weddings performed by the court in the past.
Bedell says eight to 12 couples normally participate. They can bring whoever they want to the courtroom, which holds about 100 people.
