Military Wedding to Remember
On November 11, 2011, we hosted the first Military Wedding to Remember, where we gave away a dream wedding to one deserving military couple. With the help of our partner, FOX 25 News and a host of sponsors, we gave away another dream wedding on November 11, 2012.
Our bride and groom, Karyn Sampson and Mac Luciani, started the process by submitting an essay about why they deserved the Wedding to Remember. Once chosen by the public, who voted for one of 3 couples chosen by the judges panel, Mac and Karyn started the whirlwind process to plan their wedding – in six short weeks. From choosing a dress at L’Elite to finding cake flavors from Montilio’s Bakery with Karyn’s 5th grade class and sending invitations from The Paper Store, our wedding specialist, Jennifer Wheaton, assisted them throughout the process. They chose furniture at Bernie & Phyl’s, appliances from Baron’s Major Brands and Appliances and practiced their first dance with the team at Arthur Murray Dance Studio.
The team at Westin Copley along with Elizabeth Warner from FOX 25 News helped them kick off their wedding weekend with a sneak peek at the suite they would stay in after the wedding. After an intimate ceremony that included the couple’s dog, Gemma, Mr. and Mrs. Luciani and family and friends danced the night away to tunes from Joey Scott & The Connection, after dining on a delicious meal. And after all that planning and the excitement of the festivities, Mac and Karyn will honeymoon at the Sheraton Puerto Rico.
We’re already planning for 2013 and look forward to another Military Wedding to Remember!
Congratulations Mac & Karyn!
