Twelve Jacksonville companies are teaming up to pet and pamper one lucky Northeast Florida bride and groom on their wedding day.
Before you make plans to walk down your red carpet to wedded bliss, you have to register to win. “The Ultimate Wedding Package Giveaway” provides $20,000 worth of donated services. Couples can register to win at http://www.moneypages.com/Contests/Register.aspx?ContestID=144204. Registration ends on Dec. 23, 2011 and voting for the winning couple begins in January 2012.
“We’ve put together the premier package to ensure the winning bride and groom are treated to the best day as they begin their new life together,” said Alan Worley, CEO of Money Pages, who organized the program. “Weddings are about making memories and we guarantee that our partner companies will create a wedding day this couple will never forget.”
Last year’s winners, Todd Weeks and Holli Welsh, met while working at their civil service jobs. Weeks was newly employed as a police officer and Welsh was an intern, both at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. The pair fell in love and Weeks proposed prior to a Halloween costume party. As a newly engaged young couple working in public service, Weeks and Welsh struggled to have the wedding they envisioned for their perfect day. Thanks to the community donations from “The Ultimate Wedding Package Giveaway,” these public servants were given the best wedding gift of all: a free wedding and the wedding of their dreams.
The next blushing bride wins $500 toward her gown from The Bridal Shop at The Avenues and the couple will receive teeth whitening from the staff at Beaches Center for Cosmetic Dentistry. Anderson Jewelry is providing a gift certificate toward the ring of her dreams while Dinsmore Florist is providing the wedding day flowers. Haute House will style the bride’s makeup and hair and, if needed, the Electrolysis and Laser Center is offering hair removal for the lucky couple. Avecina Medical is offering the couple a pre-wedding weight loss session to make sure they look their best on that special day.
Guests will regale in the luxury of the Palencia Club for a great wedding reception. If any members of the wedding party become stressed out, The Back Institute/Lakewood Chiropractic will massage away the tension while Naturally Photography captures the special day on film before the lucky couple is whisked away by At Your Service Limo to romantic St. Simons Island, Ga., where they will honeymoon at the Village Inn and Pub.
