And the winners of the Belle Victorian Gardens free wedding giveaway are….
Samantha and Tyler!
Many applications were received and we enjoyed reading each and every one. It was hard to narrow it down but we just loved Samantha and Tyler’s adorable story…
“I grew up watching weddings from across the street from Belle’s and ever since I was a little girl my dream has been to get married there. My fiancé and I have been searching for that perfect location and as we started our journey in this crazy wedding planning world we realized the wedding of our dreams is out of reach as for now. So we gave ourselves a year to plan and put it all together knowing that a lot will have to be second choice do to the fact that we are paying for our wedding with no help. Although what’s a “Dream wedding” anyway. In all reality it’s the love shared between two people and your wedding day should be an expression of your love, but can you put a price on that? My fiancé Tyler is my best friend, lover, partner, and teammate in life. From the moment we met my heart felt like it could finally rest. We have had our tests and trials, and at one point honestly it was our true love for each other that carried us through.
This whole wedding planning ordeal has been fun although all I want at the end of the day is to marry my best friend. The most amazing gift he can ever give me is his last name and to him this gift has to feel like it comes with a hefty price tag. Student loans, medical bills, and surprise situations have put a huge damper on our wedding planning. Whats suppose to be a happy time ends in stress and wondering where the money is going to come from. Our love has been through so much and this too shall pass. No matter what just getting to marry my best friend is all I want. Tyler supports me, motivates me, and he is constantly reminding me what’s most important in life. Our love doesn’t have a price tag. No amount of money spent on flowers, dresses, food, champagne or anything wedding related will ever be able to show our family and friends the magnitude of our love on our wedding day. The catch is every girl has dreamed of her wedding day since she was little. From the flowers, dress, food, and champagne rather a value or not every girl deserves her big day just as she’s always dreamt it. My dream since I was a little girl has always been to get married at Belle’s. This opportunity you’re offering caught my eye because it would give my fiancé and I a chance to have the wedding of our dreams and express and share our love with family and friends beyond our wildest dreams. It would also take a lot of stress off of my fiancé, and this is the most important thing in the world to me. I thank you for taking the time to read this entry and I know I’m going to be one of many applicants, but I can only hope my entry sticks out to you in some way.”
Thank you to everyone who entered!
