Valentine Speed Weddings In Paducah

Instead of in the air, love is down by the river for more than a few couples this Valentine’s Day.  The backdrop of a quick current is helping them get to the altar in a hurry. 

Former McCracken County Circuit Judge Jeff Hines married a total of seven-couples Saturday in ten-minute intervals at the River Discovery Center in Paducah. 

All it took was a commitment to a lifetime of love, and a $100 donation. 

The center’s executive director  Julie Harris said it’s a simple and special way make sure your anniversary is a memorable one.

“They get a simple wedding without all the work normally that a wedding entails, and they make a donation to the River Discovery Center. So, they get a tax deduction,” Harris said.

All the proceeds will go towards helping the River Discovery Center’s educational programs.
