In a decorated courtroom 309 at the Kankakee County Courthouse, 8 couples exchanged wedding vows on Valentine's Day, Friday, Feb. 14. Judge Imani Drew, who decorates for the occasion with the help of clerk Merita Segar, said she’s always delighted to officiate the ceremonies and make the room look special, a Valentine’s Day tradition started by retired Judge Susan Tungate. “It makes me feel wonderful to be part of the joy,” Judge Drew said. “Today is a little different than the rest of the days,” Segar said of wedding ceremonies held on Wednesdays and Fridays at the courthouse. “There’s more love in the air.”
