Free Wedding Winners!
A while back we publicized a free wedding giveaway that The White House and Cameo Events (with a whole host of other vendors) were giving to a deserving local couple. Well, the winners have been chosen! Blake and Katey won a $25,000 wedding! Here is their story….
“Our love story began eight years ago when we met through a family member of Blake’s. It’s been a long and wonderful trip to get here. The situations we’ve had to deal with haven’t been easy, but the blessings we’ve received in return have surpassed any misfortune that has come our way. We simply cannot wait for this journey we are about to embark on, it has been along time in the making.
I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer in 2009. I was advised if we wanted to have a child in needed to be soon. We had been trying for a baby for about a year at that point and were pretty down on our luck in more ways than one. The next thing we knew we were pregnant, through a high risk pregnancy, a few complications, and an earlier than planned c-section we had a healthy baby girl named Jaidyn, she is our miracle. We knew it would be a good possibility Jaidyn would inherit a brittle bone disease that Blake has lived with since he was born as well, when she was about three months old we were given the confirmed diagnosis of Oseteogenesis Imperfecta, and with the help of Shriners we will keep her up to date on current treatments. When we entered this contest, we accepted the fact that there was a good chance we might not win, but when we did we were ecstatic! This is such an amazing opportunity and we consider ourselves extremely lucky. This is such an amazing gift to be granted with. There’s a saying, “It’s easy to be thankful for the good things, but a life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks”. We couldn’t appreciate this opportunity more to assist in bonding the connection Blake and I have.”
Congrats to Blake and Katey!
