Couples can have their wedding or renew their vows below deck on the Riverview Amphitheater Stage for $222.22. This includes a dress-up/prep area at the Shreveport Riverfront Convention Center, a trolley ride to the bridge, an LED bridal flower and groom’s boutonniere, an Aquarium Plaza reception with wedding cupcakes, a champagne toast and a fireworks display designed by Broadway lighting designer Jason Lyons with the first dance under a light show designed by Oscar-winning filmmaker William Joyce.
As a bonus, all couples are entered into a raffle for a Margaritaville honeymoon the weekend of February 25 with a balcony suite overlooking the “Bakowski Bridge of Lights” and dinner at Jimmy’s Steakhouse.
You can find more information about the event and register to get married or renew your vows on the Texas Street Bridge website.
