There have been weddings at
the Empire State Building before -- Brides
magazine used to partner with ESB to marry several couples a year
on the Building's 61st floor, then pose them at the top-floor Observatory for photos. But this year, in association with TheKnot.com
, the ESB allowed Marine Corp. Captain Greg Adams and Kristy Magers of Oceanside, California, to get married right up there on the Observatory level -- the first time, their publicists tell us, this has ever been done.
Captain Adams and Magers were the grand prize winners in TheKnot's competition for the honor; 13 other winning couples will exchange or renew their vows on the lower level tomorrow. All the winners also get a bunch of wedding gear and swag, but the Captain and his bride get the coolest wedding pictures. Bigger photos after the jump.
