Save the Date 1

Married by The Specktator | 6:30-9 p.m.
Kerry Speckman, local personality “The Specktator” and ordained minister, will be on-hand at a handmade Chapel of Love to perform wedding ceremonies to couples that have the necessary paperwork, or commitment ceremonies and vow renewals for those that don’t. After the Art Walk nuptials, participating couples will be treated to chocolates from Sweet Pete’s, photos by Rob Futrell, roses from Bonnie’s Floral Designs and ring engravings by Hemming Plaza Jewelers.

To request a ceremony time, contact Liz Grebe at We will do our best to accommodate all requests. We also welcome walk-ups.

NOTE: There’s a three-day waiting period for marriage licenses in Duval County, so you’ll want to start the process ASAP here:

Single Mingle | 7:30 p.m.
This event is for those of us that haven’t yet been struck by Cupid’s arrow. Make new friends during a speed dating-like event hosted by The Lyricist Hour with Mal Jones.

Dump Your Baggage | 5-9 p.m.
Sometimes, love stinks. Write down your stories of jilted, hurtful or unrequited love and shred it. As the shredder becomes full, we’ll empty it into what will become a colorful trash bin full of the past.

Don’t forget, local art makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift! Shop from all types of art, including jewelry, paintings, sketches and accessories throughout Downtown galleries, businesses and Hemming Plaza.

With 40+ participating venues spanning over 15 city blocks, First Wednesday Art Walk has something for everyone, no matter what your relationship status may be.
