Mary Best saw on the television news from her Tampa home the Polk County Clerk's Office was holding at group wedding on Valentine's Day. This was after she had called the Hillsborough County Clerk's Office to see if they were doing something like that.

On Thursday, Feb. 14, she and Nathan Best Jr. came to the Polk County History Center where they and 13 other couples were joined in matrimony. This is the sixth year the clerk's office has held the ceremony which is followed by a party in the Second Floor Courtroom inside.

In the ceremony the Harrison School for the Arts sang, Judge Mary Catherine Green delivered a poem and told the couple to cherish each and celebrate forever their unions.
