More Denver couples got married in 2017 than ever before.

The Denver Clerk and Recorder's Office says more than 8,400 couples received marriage licenses in 2017, a five percent increase from 2016.

"As Denver keeps growing, more people are finding love here," said Clerk Debra Johnson, in a news release. "The city is growing about 2 percent a year; our marriages are more than double that growth rate."

August was the biggest month for marriage licenses in Denver in 2017.
