LVCVA and County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya launch Forever Happens Here

LVCVA and Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya launch "Forever Happens Here"

With funding from Lynn Marie Goya's wedding tourism fund, the Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Bureau (LVCVA) has launched it first major national campaign devoted to weddings, Forever Happens Here. Showcasing the glamour and variety of wedding venues, locations and styles offered in Clark County, the new campaign is launching a series of short videos telling the Las Vegas wedding story.

“We’re thrilled for this new campaign as forever truly does happen here,” Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya told KTNV. “We marry more destination wedding couples each year than anywhere else in the world and have so many amazing love stories to share. As we enter into our 5 millionth marriage license celebration, this campaign rings more true than ever.”

 

 

 

Lynn Marie Goya in the New York Times promoting Las Vegas Wedding tourism

“The Las Vegas Chapels are Open, and Waiting” — New York Times Business Section

While most other county clerks were closing their offices during the first months of COVID, Lynn Marie Goya and the wedding industry implemented strategies to keep couples safe while still allowing them the essential service of getting married. “Las Vegas weddings are open for business,” crowed the New York Times Sunday Business Section.

Las Vegas’ wedding industry has surged since County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya reopened the Marriage License Bureau in late April of 2020. When the office opened its doors after a six-week closure, couples were lined up around the block.

Yet, April 2021 had its busiest month in years, with nearly 8,000 licenses issued. In April of last year, officials gave out only 400, said Fox News. “As more and more people get vaccinated and are encouraged to travel again, we have just been bombarded. We are up over 2019 numbers which was already a really good year for us,” Lynn Goya, Clark County Clerk told KLAS News.

“”About 20% of the licenses we issue are to locals, and 80% are to tourists. Before COVID shut the international tourism down, of that 80% of tourists that come to Clark County to get married about 20 to 25% were international,” Lynn Goya, Clark County Clerk told Fox News. “Last year we only had 3% because obviously people aren’t traveling and they still aren’t traveling yet internationally.”

The $2.5 billion industry permeates the economy, Goya told NPR, supporting 18,000 jobs.

Couples flock to Las Vegas during pandemic wedding boom

Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya said she thinks the pandemic may have changed how people look at being in a relationship.

“I think it made people re-evaluate what’s important to them,” Goya told US News. “One is the financial and health benefit aspect of getting married. But also, you know if something terrible happens to you, you have somebody you can trust and rely on. There’s a solidity that being single doesn’t offer.”
