Valentine’s Day Weddings On Brides.com!
…You Won’t Want To Miss It!
For the past few years, Brides.com has partnered with the Empire State Building, holding a sweepstakes to allow 14 lucky couples the chance to have a dream wedding atop the legendary skyscraper of “An Affair to Remember” and “Sleepless in Seattle” fame on February 14th.
Valentine’s Day is the only day of the year that the Empire State Building allows weddings at the building and the only way to be able to walk down the aisle at the building is to have won the Brides.com Contest — and then be a part of the all-day wedding marathon that follows.
But, making this year’s event truly newsworthy, for the first time in the history of this annual event, Brides.com made the Valentine’s Day wedding extravaganza available for all to see on a live streaming video feed on February 14th. All 14 weddings were streamed as they happened, beginning with the first ceremony.

“This year, the brides and grooms will not only celebrate weddings and vow renewals, but for the very first time in The Empire State Building’s history, one couple – two brides — will take part in a same-sex commitment ceremony.
Brides.com editors will lend their expertise by working with famed event planner and designer Michelle Rago to transform the space at The Empire State Building into a wedding wonderland and providing consultations for one-on-one style and beauty to each couple. Beginning at 7 a.m. on Valentine’s Day, the couples will exchange vows in individual private ceremonies surrounded by 20 of their closest friends and family members. Each sky-high ceremony will conclude with a champagne toast and a VIP trip to the 86th floor Observatory.
To commemorate their big day, couples will also receive an exclusive gift bag including items from David’s Bridal, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Noritake, Nautica, The Occasions Group, The Almond Board and Beach Bum Tanning, and David’s Bridal, which will also be outfitting all the brides for special lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building on February 13th.
Visitors to Brides.com on Valentine’s Day can also enter to win the same exclusive gift bag given to the winning couples and a honeymoon package from Secrets Resorts & Spas.” – Brides.com
