The couple won an online contest. Theirs was the first of four Valentine's Day weddings being held at the landmark Manhattan skyscraper.     

A wedding chapel was set up for the occasion. After the ceremony, the couple went to the observation deck for photos.     

The 29-year-old Figarelle wore a black tuxedo for the ceremony. The 24-year-old McArthur wore a strapless white gown with a train.
