New York New York Hotel & Casino is giving an expected 100 couples the unique opportunity to say “I do” and proclaim their love on the run during the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon & ½ Marathon’s Run-Thru Wedding Ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 2.

The three-minute ceremony will take place on the iconic Brooklyn Bridge at approximately 5:30 p.m., providing couples a one-of-a-kind experience to marry for the first time or renew their vows as they run in the glow of the Las Vegas Strip’s neon glimmer.
