~ Empire State Building Valentines Day Weddings ~
Every year The Empire State Building holds a contest and 14 lucky couples from around the world, are chosen to get married at the top of the city. Lucky me, I was the officiant in 2008 & 2009! The beautiful winners from those years are here with excerpts from their ceremonies.
Congratulations and many happy years to you all!
