21 Couples Tie The Knot At City Hall!

We're absolutely the type to stop and gush when we see a bride or groom taking wedding photos in the park. So, you can imagine how we get with our office so close to City Hall. It's like romantic fish in an urban barrel. What we mean is, we can safely park ourselves right by the nuptial mecca and spot a parade of blushing brides and lucky grooms all day, erryday. So, we did just that to officially ring in wedding season; we snapped 21 couples making the eternal commitment.
From one of our own staffers to a professional clown, all kinds of Gotham City lovers swung by the lower-Manhattan landmark to exchange vows. And, in a true variety of styles, they reminded us what a wedding day's all about: glitz and glam. Gotcha! It's all about the L-O-V-E, which these 21 pairs had in spades. (They just happened to have the perfect amount of glitz and glam, too.)
