Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop Valentine's Day Weddings


Live yesteryear's charm of a romantic runaway marriage by marrying at the Gretna Green Blacksmith Shop in Gretna, Louisiana! Marriages are performed by Judge Vernon J. Wilty III, the Jefferson Parish justice of the peace who has performed more than 19,000 weddings in his career as a marrying judge!

The couples are married individually and after the judge completes the vows, the blacksmith will strike the anvil to seal the deal in the centuries-old tradition of Gretna Green Scotland, the city of Gretna's namesake.

Special certificates and proclamations are issued to all couples along with a complimentary wedding photograph.
