CHICAGO — Skydeck Chicago at Willis Tower, Chicago’s most iconic landmark, announces its third annual “Love on the Ledge” social media contest today. Over the last two years, Love on the Ledge has provided adventurous couples looking for a unique way to tie the knot or renew their vows the opportunity to win a romantic ceremony 1,353 feet in the sky. For the first time, Skydeck Chicago will expand the “Love on the Ledge” opportunity to couples that are not engaged or married by offering a romantic photoshoot atop Skydeck Chicago.
