3 couples get married, renew vows at Willis Tower Skydeck on Valentine's Day weekend

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Three couples took their love to new heights Sunday morning, atop the Willis Tower.

Skydeck Chicago hosted its annual Love on the Ledge wedding ceremonies, as couples said "I do" with the Chicago skyline as the backdrop.

A whole lot of love was in the air with the ultimate Valentine's Day weekend celebration.

Three couples had the backdrop of the city behind them as they renewed their vows or got married on the ledge at Skydeck Chicago.

"It means the world to me; this is like our crew, and I'm happy they're able to join us on this day, and I'm really excited," Juanita LaDonna Watson said.

Each ceremony lasted about 15 minutes.

"She deserves it; we met in the city, we're both from the city, born and raised. It's been great, less stress," Paris Parnell Adams said.

All the couples applied for this special day and gave a reason for why they should be chosen.

The three winning couples received a gift of a one-night stay at a nearby hotel along with a complimentary breakfast before their big day Sunday.

Each couple had eight guests who could see the ceremony.

One couple was bringing it back to where it all started.

"I had actually proposed to her about two years ago on the ledge. So it kind of helped us out you know to bring back more memories," Ashley and Stephanie Galarza said.

Another couple was reigniting the magic, renewing their vows after nearly 20 years together. And this time, Mike and Amanda's kids got to witness the special moment.

"For me, it's just incredible. The view out there and I hate heights. It's just wonderful," they said.
