A gay male couple received a prize package on New Year's Eve for being the 5,000th same-sex couple to receive a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Ronald Bauman and Dumitru Alexeev of Phoenix were the lucky couple.

The Las Vegas local business community offered the couple a number of gifts to mark the milestone, including a basic wedding package at the Luxor Wedding Chapel, stays at Circus Circus Las Vegas and Mandalay Bay hotels, and tickets to the Michael Jackson One show and to the High Roller.

β€œThis is a wonderful milestone to celebrate as we ring in a new year,” County Clerk Lynn Goya said in a press release. β€œLas Vegas is the best place in the world to get married, and we extend our happy congratulations to Ronald Bauman and Dumitru Alexeev on being the 5,000th same-sex couple to receive their marriage license in Clark County.”

Nevada began issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples on October 9, 2014 following a legal challenge to the state's 2002 voter-approved constitutional amendment defining marriage as a heterosexual union.
