The Empire State Building is looking for couples who want to tie the knot on Valentine's Day in one of the coolest places in the country.
    
Participants must submit their love stories, photos and reasons for wanting to marry at the legendary landmark by Dec. 9. Fourteen couples will be chosen based on the originality and creativity of their entries, as well as their links to the iconic building.
    
A spokesperson for the building says more than 220 couples have been married at its annual Valentine's Day tradition, which began in 1994. Last year, two brides took part in the Empire State Building's first same-sex commitment ceremony.

If you want to say "I do" atop the world-famous landmark, you better get crackin'. Valentine's Day is the only day each year the building opens its doors for weddings.
    
The Empire State Building has partnered with the Knot.com for this year's event. Click here for more information.
