RENEWAL OF VOWS

Say "I do" all over again.

At 6pm on February 14, 2018, couples were invited to celebrate romance, passion, and each other in a one of a kind tour-de-love — the Vow Renewal Ceremony. The ceremony took place on the iconic glass Red Steps, following a special performance from the Broadway musical Anastasia!

Couples of all ages and backgrounds professed their love once again, with a special invitation extended to lovebirds whose kisses bridge boundaries, be they religious, political, racial, or national, as well as couples in wedding attire.
