Remember when we posted the FREE $25,000 wedding a couple months ago?! Well today, we get to see the real thing! Samantha and Tyler were the lucky winners (you can read their winning story here), they truly had a dream wedding, all of which was donated by some of the most talented vendors in the Inland Northwest! The big day took place at the gorgeous Belle Victorian Gardens, with Sarah from Park Road Photography behind the camera. This couple had everything from the bridesmaids dresses to hair and make-up completely covered by a fantastic group of vendors, be sure to read the full vendor list at the bottom of the post. Here is a little from Belle Victorian Gardens owner, Pam, about how it all came together: “When the date of September 21st, 2013 was cancelled at our venue, I decided that I would make lemonade out of lemons by creating a giveaway wedding at my venue on that date. I felt it would be awesome publicity to draw attention to our beautiful property and to bless a couple who may not of had the means to be able to book a date there. As it turned out we had close to $30,000 contributed by vendors to create this beautiful event. We then put it out on our local wedding blog, applebrides.com, and all of our facebook pages to let potential couples know to enter. We had many entries and narrowed it down to 3 finalists. We then interviewed the three finalists and chose a winner.”
And wait, there’s more! Here is the beautiful video by Aaron from Grace Media!
