The gay mecca of Seattle, Washington is hoping to court LGBT travelers through their new Marry Me in Seattle campaign and a sweepstakes for engaged couples to win hosted trips and weddings in the Emerald City—and a chance to be married by Seattle’s first openly gay mayor, Ed Murray.
The sweepstakes package includes participation from some iconic Seattle partners, according to a press release. “Air transportation will be provided by Alaska Airlines, a four-night stay at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel, a wedding ceremony at Canlis restaurant, DJ and music, wedding photography, champagne courtesy of Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, beer from Hilliard’s Brewery & Taproom and dessert from Trophy Cupcakes. The hosted Seattle weddings will accommodate guests and transportation to and from the ceremony will be offered by Uber Seattle.”
“It’s an honor to be part of this campaign and I look forward to officiating at the ceremonies for the lucky couples who win wedding trips to Seattle,” said Seattle Mayor Ed Murray. “I appreciate the work Visit Seattle is doing to bring more out-of-town LGBTQ visitors to Seattle and the new ‘Marry Me in Seattle’ campaign is a great example of that work.”
