    Couples marry in City Hall Valentine’s Day ceremony

    By: Denis Devine

    Forty-two couples were married today at lunchtime ceremony at Philadelphia City Hall. Usually, this mass wedding is held on Valentine’s Day, but City Hall is closed on Saturday, and well, not many couples want to get hitched on Friday the 13th. WHYY’s Denis Devine was there.
