A very imposing outside with its dome modeled on St Peter's church in Rome and it's also taller than the Capitol building in Washington. Inside there is a magnificent marble floored rotunda.

This is incredible architecture! You can get married here or just wander the floor and see the exhibitions on the ground level. It is stunning, and lit up at night with different themes.

government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.

From what I recall some of the weddings were being done in the judges chambers but others were going on all over. I guess the best thing to do is to check with the individual judge.
