Couples get married/renew vows on the Skydeck

On a week dedicated to love, why not tie the knot 1,300 feet in the sky?

On Sunday, Skydeck Chicago hosted four couples on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower, two getting married and two renewing their vows, just before Valentine’s Day. Each couple was picked after sharing their love stories in Skydeck’s “Love on The Ledge” social media contest.

This year’s “Love on The Ledge” event comes as Skydeck also celebrates its 50th anniversary. According to a news release, over the years, Skydeck has hosted more 1,300 proposals, weddings and vow renewals, plus tens of thousands of romantic dates.

“Really, we’re about making memories at Skydeck, and I think we did that (Sunday) with ‘Love on The Ledge,’” Randy Stancik, Skydeck general manager, said.

This year’s “Love on The Ledge” contest opened in October, and Stancik said Skydeck received about 40 submissions for a wedding or vow removal. The winning couples each received a night’s stay at Swissotel Chicago, right in the heart of the city at 323 East Wacker Drive, on Saturday night.

“We provide everything, we provide the officiant, to the music, to the champagne, to the hotel night the night before,” Stancik said. “It’s an opportunity to celebrate love, with Skydeck being a very romantic place.”

It’s probably the most Chicago thing you can do. Get married at the top of the Sears (Willis) Tower!
