The January 1, 2018 free service contest winner has been selected and notified, but I can’t give you too many details right now as they are planning on eloping this fall here on the Outer Banks and have not told their friends and family yet! I will share some of the bride’s email to me after being told the good news.
“Wow, what a wonderful way to start the New Year! Thank you for selecting [us] as the winners of your contest! We would love to have you officiate our ceremony in the Outer Banks. Honestly, it is an answered prayer for me. We had been contemplating a small ceremony locally or an elopement at the Outer Banks. I was leaning more towards the elopement … but since it is his first wedding, I understood that perhaps he wanted something traditional … I had already been down that road and wasn’t interested. When I found your website, something inside me kept coming back to it. Although we’ve never met, there was just something that told me this is what [we] need – intimate, personal, and simple with the ocean in our ears, two best friends by our side, and an officiant who can make it really special. When I saw we had won the contest, I was so happy and told [my fiance] immediately. He had this big smile on his face. I will never forget it. He said, ‘So looks like we’re getting married at the Outer Banks huh?’ I laughed and said yes we are. So us winning this contest is just confirmation that we should go with our hearts and elope. So thank you again.”
I can’t wait for this fall to be the one standing with this sweet couple as they say those two life changing words, “I DO!”
