December 2014 Giveaway Winner: Wedding Giveaways in Raleigh Durham & Chapel Hill
Every six months, we offer amazing new Wedding Giveaways in Raleigh Durham & Chapel Hill. Brides can register at any Triangle Bridal Show, or on our website. Our December 2013 giveaway was a truly exciting prize. We offered a weekend getaway to the historic Carolina Inn, an incredible wedding venue and weekend retreat. The lucky winners of this giveaway are the soon-to-be-wed Allison and Chris of Durham. They are currently planning a wedding at the Duke Gardens in June of 2014, with the help of several fantastic local wedding vendors, and a little help from Weddings Mag. Allison says, “It was not long after we got engaged that I realized we now had a wedding to plan. After a little bit of anxiety and some guidance from friends, family, and of course weddings-magazine.com (and my 3 Weddings magazine copies), I think that we have managed to check a lot of the “to-do’s” off of our check list. I have listed below our vendors thus far!”
The happy couple was sweet enough to share their adorable Outer Banks engagement story with us as well!
“Chris proposed on July 27, 2013 in front of the Bodie Island lighthouse in Nags Head. It was perfect! I love lighthouses and he is from the Outer Banks, not to mention I had no idea that he was about to pop the question! We had gone to visit his parents for the weekend, and planned to climb the lighthouse on that Saturday. It was blue skies, a little bit windy, and not too hot that day. As we began the ascent, Chris started acting nervous because he is afraid of heights, or so I thought. Once we reached the top of the lighthouse and looked out towards the ocean for a few minutes, it was time to walk back down all of those windy stairs. After the climb, I wanted to take the obligatory picture in front of the lighthouse- so I passed my phone to his brother to take our picture. The next thing I know Chris got down on one knee and proposed!”
