What could be better than winning a return trip to Las Vegas to renew your wedding vows? How about a return trip every year for a lifetime?
Clark County has launched an Instagram contest that will award prizes for one couple every month, and one grand prize that will pay off for a lifetime.
“It is the five million couples who chose to get married in Las Vegas that made us the Wedding Capital of the World,” said Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya. “These lucky-in-love couples have a special place in our history.”
The contest is open to all couples — married or not — and asks them to capture a kiss at one of eight designated locations around the city, most right on the Strip where visitors already flock.
“We are all about celebrating love, whether your love story starts here or is a stop along the way,” said Goya. “It’s all part of what makes us the Wedding Capital of the World, and this is a great way to honor all of the couples that come to Clark County.”
To enter, couples must take a photo of their kiss at any of the locations and post it on their public Instagram account using the hashtag #LuckyInLoveLasVegas. Couples may enter up to eight times, or once per location.
“There are so many places in Las Vegas that are iconic backdrops for photos, proposals, and weddings. We want to celebrate those couples that choose to come here and have them ‘capture a kiss’ with us,” said Donne Kerestik, CEO of Chapel of the Flowers, one of the designated locations.
To enter, couples must take a kiss photo at:
- “Sweetheart” mural by Jerry Misko at Office of the County Clerk/Marriage License Bureau
- “Married In Fabulous Las Vegas” sign at Chapel of the Flowers
- “LOVE” sculpture at The Venetian Resort
- “The Wishing Tree” at The Grand Canal Shoppes in The Venetian
- “Future is Colorful” stairs at Fashion Show Las Vegas
- “The Fountains of Bellagio” at Bellagio Resort
- The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas
- Venus de Medici statue at Caesars Palace
One winner will be selected each month through January for a prize that includes airfare from Allegiant Airlines, a two-night stay at Venetian Resort Las Vegas, dinner, gift cards, a pair of rings, and a vow renewal at Chapel of the Flowers.
Next February, one grand prize winner will receive a trip annually for the next 25 years with airfare, hotel, vow renewal package, and more. The couple must remain married to continue to receive the prize.
Clark County’s Marriage License Bureau is the busiest in the world, having issued more than 77,000 licenses last year. It is responsible for about $2.5 billion in annual revenue to the county.
