Love was in the air and in cards for hundreds of couples in Atlantic City this Valentine's Day.
A kiss for Valentine's Day; most often referred to as the most romantic day of the year, but for many will now be remembered as one of the best days of their lives.
"It's un-describable, the feeling of love. It's just awesome."
Kelly Wexler and her now husband Neil were just one of the 160 couples who said "I Do" during the 6th Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall Group Wedding, which takes place every year on Valentine's Day.
"So many people have told us stories over the years about how they honey mooned in Atlantic City on their first marriage. So we thought what a great opportunity to get a group of people to get married or do vow renewals," said Larry Sieg, V.P. of Marketing for the A.C. Convention and Visitors Authority.
Like Mimi and Elmer McNamara who were married on the holiday 60 years ago.
"It's 21 thousand, 900 and 15 days today," said Mimi McNamara. "Actually today is the first day of the rest of our lives."
The McNamara's have attended every group wedding and say they plan on returning every year from now on to take part in the completely free ceremony.
Just like Eddie and Carolyn Morgan who exchanged vows for the first time at the very first service.
"It's been the best 5 years of my life being with my husband Eddie, and we just compliment each other and we hope we are together for another 45 years." Said Carolyn Morgan.
No wedding would be complete without the reception, as the couples shared their first dance and raised a toast to a love that will last forever and always.
All couples had to obtain their own marriage or civil union license prior to the event, and they also had the opportunity to win various prizes.
