The “wedding capital of the world” is on the cusp of issuing its 10,000th marriage license to a same-sex couple, and local businesses want to make sure the ceremony to come will be a lavish celebration.
The Clark County Clerk’s Marriage License Bureau has received an abundance of gifts for the couple including a two-night stay at Mandalay Bay, free wedding photography from Frick Photo and offers for free ceremonies from a handful of local resorts and wedding chapels.
In all, more than 25 businesses have donated gifts. Most are members of the Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce.
“We thought it was a great opportunity to say ‘thank you for getting married with us’ and celebrate the ‘same love, same rights’ (movement),” chamber president Kristen LaBuda said. “Marriage equality is just an important value to us here.”
