Win a Colin Cowie Wedding at the Empire State Building CONTESTS & GIVEAWAYS
ColinCowieWeddings.com, a new planning site, is partnering with the Empire State Building for a nationwide contest, “The Wings of Love,” that will identify four romantic couples who will each win a once-in-a-lifetime dream wedding designed by Colin Cowie. Celebrity wedding designer Colin Cowie, known for his glamorous celebrations across the globe will bring his signature wedding style to the Empire State Building when four lucky winners say “I do” at the glittering NYC landmark in an exclusive Valentine’s Day wedding for up to 40 guests. And if that is not enough to make Long Island engaged couples want to race to the altar, one Grand Prize couple will win the chance to receive a $100,000 cash prize to kick off their married life in style.
Couples can enter from November 18 through December 9, at Facebook.com/colincowieweddings or www.esbnyc.com. Participants are asked to submit a short video, two minutes or less, about their unique love story, describing what makes their love soar, and why they should be chosen to be married, or renew their vows, at the Empire State Building.
Sixteen semi-finalists will be chosen by a panel of wedding and style experts from ColinCowieWeddings.com, the Empire State Building, Estee Lauder, Kleinfeld, home of TLC’s “Say Yes To The Dress,” and Christian Oth Studio based on their originality, style and connection to the world’s most famous building. The semi-finalists will be announced on December 16, and then the public will vote on the final four winners, which will be announced on January 6, 2012.
As Cowie transforms the 61st floor of the Empire State Building into four luxurious ceremonies and receptions, the details like the brides’ dresses, flowers and cakes will be decided by public voting on Facebook. Each bride will be outfitted in a designer gown from Kleinfeld, with hair and make-up provided by Estee Lauder and grooms will be outfitted by Men’s Wearhouse. All couples will be treated in first-class style with a two-night stay in Manhattan’s exclusive Pierre Hotel where they will be primped and pampered with pre-wedding festivities by the ColinCowieWeddings.com team of editors, stylists and photographers in preparation for their magical celebration.
On February 14, 2012, the chosen couples will each tie the knot in a private ceremony and reception with four unique looks, each topped off with Dom Perignon and Godiva Chocolatier.
The excitement continues after the “I Dos” when all four wedding albums are posted online the week of February 21, 2012, for one last vote to choose the couple who will get a chance to win $100,000 in cash. “A great way to start their life together,” says Cowie.
