Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- 11/12/13 is going to be a big day for weddings in Las Vegas and a couple from Florida will probably be the very first to be married in Las Vegas on the magical date.

They will be married at the stroke of midnight at Smashburger on South Fort Apache Road.

Darlene Hielscher and Bryan Porter were the winners of Smashburger's 11/12/13 Vine contest.

Couples had to create a Vine video that showed their love for burgers and for each other. The videos could be published to Facebook or Twitter.

Hielscher and Porter were high school sweethearts who lost touch and then reconnected years later over beers and burgers. Two years after that magical date, they are now getting married in Las Vegas.

The burger-themed nuptials will be officiated by Elvis, a.k.a. Brendan Paul from Graceland Chapel.

They will cut into a 6-tiered wedding "cake" made entirely of Smashburgers after the ceremony.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is offering unique wedding opportunities for couples who wish to say "I do" on the sequential date.

For the first time ever, couples can wed inside The Chandelier bar and lounge.

Couples will also be getting married in the rather unconventional Pop-Up Wedding Chapel.

Wedding chapels throughout the city such as Viva Las Vegas Weddings are expecting 11/12/13 to be a record setting day for nuptials.

And many chapels, such as the Little Chapel, are offering special packages for the very special date.

The special wedding package at the MGM Grand hotel and casino is called "Lucky In Love On 11-12-13" and only costs $2,200. The package is all inclusive and includes a night's stay, limo service, hair and makeup, photography and more.

For those looking for something outside, City Wedding Tours offers a variety of packages.

Couples looking to add a little mob flavor to their wedding were able to arrange a wedding at the Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas. And for couples who simply wanted a touch of old Vegas, the Neon Museum offered a special package called "The Magic Day" inside of their Neon Boneyard.

The next iconic date is 12/13/14.
