Clark County: 10,000th same-sex marriage license issued

LAS VEGAS - The Clark County Clerk's Marriage License Bureau issued the 10,000th marriage license to a same-sex couple Friday.

County officials say local businesses donated wedding presents for the 10,000th same-sex couple including a two-night stay and dinner at Mandalay Bay. Other amenities included free passes to the High Roller observation wheel at The LINQ Promenade, flowers, professional photographs, and a wedding ceremony.

"I would like to thank all of the people and businesses who are helping us congratulate the lucky 10,000th couple," Clark County Clerk Lynn Goya said. "Las Vegas is the wedding capital of the world, and it is exciting for us to welcome all couples to our community and help them celebrate one of the most memorable and most enjoyable days of their lives."

The first license was issued to a same-sex couple on Oct. 9, 2014.
