At the stroke of midnight, Las Vegas couple Justin Brittingham and Heather Bagley said, “I do,” becoming the first couple to be married on the palindromic date of 8/1/18. The couple married 550 feet in the air, atop the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel at The LINQ Promenade.
Aug. 1, 2018 marks the first of several “magic wedding dates,” which include the palindromic dates of 8/1/18 and 8/18/18, as well as the equally auspicious date of 8/8/18. Long considered to be a lucky number (in Chinese, eight is “ba,” which is similar to “fa,” meaning fortune), the number eight can also represent infinity, prosperity, balance and harmony.
Earlier this summer, Caesars Entertainment conducted a Facebook contest, encouraging couples to explain why they are lucky in love. More than 25 couples from around the country entered the contest. The winning couple receives the complimentary wedding inside the High Roller cabin. Destination Las Vegas provided the officiant, flowers and décor for the High Roller cabin, as well as a wedding gown, hair and make-up for the bride.
The LINQ Promenade is an open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district anchored by the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. The High Roller consistently ranks as one of the best, “must see” and most photographed attractions by media outlets around the world. Each of the wheel’s 28 glass-enclosed cabins can accommodate up to 40 guests and features an interactive journey incorporating video, music and spectacular views of the famed resort city during the 30-minute revolution. Unique in-cabin experiences include Happy Half Hour (featuring an open bar inside select cabins for guests 21 and over during the 30-minute ride); North America’s first in-cabin Chocolate Tasting with Ethel M Chocolates and Yoga in the Sky (a 60-minute session that can accommodate up to six guests). Cabins are also available for private events and groups.
