Statement from Las Vegas

"This is a historic day for Las Vegas and the great state of Nevada. As the "Wedding Capital of the World" and one of the top destinations for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender visitors, Las Vegas welcomes LGBT couples wishing to legally recognize their relationship. There is simply no better destination to host a fabulous wedding followed by a one-of-a-kind honeymoon."

Las Vegas is welcoming from one end of the Strip to the other and goes above and beyond to ensure every visitor has a memorable experience. With more than 300 sunny days a year, the destination provides the perfect backdrop for couples ready to make it official. Las Vegas offers everything from elaborate, over-the-top venues to intimate settings that will bring the most romantic dreams to life. That's why it's no surprise that nearly 100,000 marriage licenses are issued each year, for couples looking to make it official.

Additionally, this past April, the destination released a "What Happens Here, Stays Here" television commercial specifically geared toward the LGBT community. "The Check In" aired on various well-known television networks including Bravo TV, E! Entertainment Television and Logo TV.
