As part of a yearly tradition, these 14 couples won the opportunity to be married atop the Empire State Building!

Spending time with your lovey may have you feeling like you're flying high this Valentine's Day, but these couples will be looking down on all of New York as they take their vows on Tuesday. The Empire State Building offered their observation deck to anyone wishing to tie the knot, and those 14 couples chosen from around the country and around the world will also receive a one-night stay at the Grand Hyatt, a breakfast at the ESB's STATE Grill and Bar, and a Bulova timepiece. One of the couples will also be selected to win a three-night honeymoon at the Hard Rock Hotel in the Dominican Republic.

Here are the lucky winners (read more about each couple on the official announcement page):

  • Cynthia Eska and Joseph Moccia (Berkeley Heights, NJ)
  • Roetta Collins and Patrick D. Smith (New York, NY)
  • Laura and David DeMusz (Middletown, Delaware)
  • Krista Owens and Danielle Reno (Wantagh, NY and Levittown, NY)
  • Andrea Hurtado and Andrew Reed (Cutler Bay, FL)
  • Danielle Stone and Brian Doyle (Boonton, NJ)
  • Yanqiu Wang and Huan Yang (China)
  • Jennifer Cuatt and Christopher Langmack (North Salem, NY)
  • Carolyn Zeits and Ryan Simon (Philadelphia, PA)
  • Jennifer K. Tuck and Rayford W. Chappill (New York, NY)
  • Amanda Woodard and Phillip Turinsky (Southgate, MI)
  • Jennifer and Patrick Davenport (Port Orange, FL)
  • Catherine Fiehn Malat and Eric LeStrange (Milford, CT and Shelton, CT)
  • Emily and Ken Evans (West Palm Beach, FL)

The services will be starting at 8am and each couple only gets 15 minutes in the spotlight, so if you're heading to the ESB to propose to your beau this Valentine's Day, better wait until after 2pm to avoid being upstaged by these lovebirds!

And of course, once night falls, the building's spire will be lit in full red in celebration of Valentine's Day. 💗
