A group of Loudoun County wedding professionals have joined forces to provide a free wedding to a deserving military couple.
Many of the vendors are members of Hunt Country Celebrations including; Ann Fortin who will be hosting the event at Kalero Vinyard in Purcellville, Virginia. Tony Stafford of Ford’s Wicked Catering will be providing the food, Matt Warschaw of Pure Perfection Catering the desserts, and Amy Thunell from Bluemont Vinyard, will be the wedding coordinator. Michael Stump from Tip Top Photobooths will provide a photo-booth, and Seema Dubay of Salon Montage will take care of the wedding party’s hair and makeup. Robert Holley will be the photographer, flowers will be provided by Rick of Rick’s Flowers and the officiant will be Donna Ruland of Any Time, Any Place Marriages. Rosanna Smith from Bella Villa will style the event and provide antique furniture for a special look. Christian Bently of L’Auberge Provencale will offer a Shenandoah Valley Mini-Honeymoon.
The contest is open to all branches of the military as long as one member of the marrying couple is currently serving. Students at any military academy are also eligible. Interested parties should go to www.loudounisforlovers.org and create an essay explaining why they are deserving of a free wedding. The contest winner will be announced at the end of November this year.
