Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Are you lovin' it?

Although many couples, including the happy pair pictured here, have made McDonald's part of their nuptials, McDonald's devotees now have a place where they can officially consummate their affection for the Clown: Hong Kong is the first city in the world to host weddings under the Golden Arches.

Helen Cheung, director of corporate communications and relations for McDonald's Hong Kong, says she's been getting about ten calls a month from couples who want to tie the knot under the watchful eye of Ronald McDonald. There's so much interest, in fact, this McDonald's will soon be hostings engagement parties and wedding anniversaries.

Just one hitch in getting hitched here: No alcohol.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
