Earlier today, nearly 60 couples running the Rock ‘n Roll Las Vegas Marathon made a pit stop at the Venetian to exchange or renew their vows amidst the romantic gondolas and picturesque Doge’s Palace Bridge. The 26-mile marathon kicked off at 7 a.m. with more than 30,000 runners.
Friends, family and onlookers gathered to celebrate the Run Thru Wedding Ceremony held approximately three miles into the course. The ceremony hosted many couples saying “I do” for the first time, while others renewed their vows before heading back to complete the marathon. Among the runners were ABC’s “The Bachelor” alums Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney. The couple was all smiles as they held hands and renewed their vows.
The Venetian marks a memorable place for couple Cliff Jennings and Susan Fryman.“The Venetian is a very special place to us,” said Fryman. After first meeting during a marathon in Venice, Italy, Jennings proposed to Fryman on a gondola at the Venetian and today said “I do” overlooking the outdoor Grand Canal.
Sarah Reinertsen, the first female leg amputee to complete an Ironman Triathlon, and her husband also renewed their vows today.
