Win a Free $40,000 Wine Country Wedding


WeddingWire presents “My Wedding in a Week” in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 11, 2009 – WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, announced the launch of “My Wedding in a Week” along with STAR 101.3 FM in San Francisco. Together with their team of wedding professionals, WeddingWire will be giving away a $40,000 wine country wedding to one very lucky couple. The only catch: the couple has one week to plan everything beginning to end.

Beginning the week of March 2nd, San Francisco-area engaged couples have the opportunity to register to win the wedding of their dreams at Viansa Italian Village & Winery in the beautiful Sonoma Wine Country. Once selected by STAR listeners on March 27th, the winning couple only has seven days to plan and execute their dream. The radio audience can help by voting online at to select the wedding cake, wedding dress, reception menu, and floral decorations during the week of March 30th.

“It’s amazing what lengths engaged couples will go to in order to plan their wedding, and this contest is the perfect example,” says Megan Hermeling, Manager of Community Development for WeddingWire. “However, with the current state of the economy, many couples’ wedding plans have been downsized or even canceled, out of necessity. WeddingWire is thrilled to be in a position to give a deserving couple this incredible gift. There is nothing more beautiful than a wine country wedding!”

The happy couple will say “I Do” on Friday, April 3rd at Viansa Italian Village & Winery. Showcasing romantic Tuscan architecture with unparalleled panoramic views, Viansa sits majestically on a vine-covered hilltop at the gateway to the Sonoma Valley. The contest winners will invite one hundred of their closest friends and family to an intimate ceremony in the wine cellar, followed by a full reception in their tented pavilion.

WeddingWire has compiled a very talented and generous group of wedding professionals to provide the couple with anything and everything they would need to make this day possible. Local vendors from the Bay Area have agreed to participate, offering their services ranging from a wedding dress and a wedding cake to the entertainment and catering.

The “My Wedding in a Week” timeline is as follows:
• March 2nd – 19th – Contest Registration
• March 20th – Finalists are chosen
• March 20th – 26th – Voting period
• March 27th – Winners announced
