There will be no charge; the only requirement is a pre-obtained official marriage license.

The festivites begin at 10:30 p.m. and will rock on until 1 a.m., with music dancing and of course, a bit of wedding cake. The event is free and open to the public, but if you plan on saying vows, please rsvp to amy@patrickscabaret so they can get a head count.
