CHICAGO (WLS) -- Four couples will get married this month at the Skydeck of the Willis Tower as part of the second annual "Love on the Edge" contest ahead of Valentine's Day.

The winning couples were announced Monday:

- Jennifer Can and D'Andre Hamilton, Chicago residents who will marry after six years together

- Betty Rivera and David Castillo, who reside in Brighton Park and who met in high school (Side note: David is afraid of heights)

- Oliver Robinson and Lara Pira from Skokie, who met the first day of high school 16 years ago and fell in love seven years ago

- Kathy and Denis Kendall of Glen Ellyn, who will renew their vows to celebrate their 26 year marriage

The couples will get married Feb. 12. The couples will exchange vows from the ledge's glass-floor balconies that extend 4.3 feet from the building structure.

The Skydeck is the highest observation deck in the U.S., located on the Willis Tower's 103rd floor at 1,353 feet in the sky.

To date, there have been 874 known marriage proposals, 90 weddings, 15 vow renewals on the ledge.

Winners will exchange their vows with eight guests in a private, 15-minute ceremony. After the ceremony, the newlyweds will celebrate with a champagne toast and receive their wedding gifts from Crate & Barrel and each couple will receive a complementary photo taken by Willis Tower's in-house photographer.
