It wasn't easy, but after much deliberation, we've finally selected the winners of our wedding giveaway. Meet Jacqueline and Akash, the cute couple who will be getting married for free in New York City on June 7th courtesy of Racked.
We asked contestants to tell us how they met, with the prize going to the pair with the best story. It would have been pretty hard to beat what Jaqueline told us: "We met at a mutual friend's birthday party where I didn't know he was hitting on me. He flew to India to meet me after our first date." Adorable!
Tune in to @racked on Twitter and Instagram to follow along with the nuptials on June 7th, and keep an eye on the site the following week for stories about how we put together their New York City dream wedding. Many thanks to everyone who entered, and to our amazing vendors: King & Grove for the venue, Nordstrom for the gown, The Black Tux for the suit, Catbird for the rings, Magnolia Bakery for the cake, and Sprout Home for the bouquet, not to mention Blo Blow Dry Bar for hair, Laramie Glen of Book Your Look for make-up, and Daniel Silbert of To the Moon for photography.
