If you're planning to get married during the DNC, don't plan on a courthouse wedding. Mecklenburg County magistrates will not be performing marriage ceremonies or oversee small claims cases from September 2 through September 7. There are about 25 weddings per week at the Mecklenburg County courthouse. But no one will be able to tie the knot there during the DNC.
