RULES & HOW TO ENTER

For the second time in two years, Charleston's leading wedding vendors and Magnolia Planation and Gardens will offer a wedding package valued at more than $50,000 to the couple who wins "Sharing the Romance."

May 15 is the deadline to apply for the wedding giveaway, "Sharing the Romance," that will culminate Feb. 7, 2015, with a ceremony and reception at Magnolia's Carriage House.

To enter, submit an application along with a 3- to 5-minute video that states what you love about the possibility of getting married in Charleston and explains how you met your future spouse.

Judges will select four finalists in May. Their videos will be posted on Magnolia's and Charleston Weddings Magazine's websites on June 2 to give the public an opportunity to vote for the couple with the most compelling story. The winner will be announced in August 2014.

The application and rules are posted on the Magnolia website: www.magnoliaplantation.com.

FOX 24-TV in Charleston and Charleston Weddings Magazine are the media sponsors for "Sharing the Romance."

Katie and Bobby Hill won "Sharing the Romance" in 2012. They were married at Magnolia on Feb. 9, 2013, under the branches of ancient live oaks adorned with Spanish moss along the banks of the Ashley River.

Winning the contest helped the couple with their wedding plans while they served in the same U.S. Army unit in Kandahar, Afghanistan, with Operation Enduring Freedom.

The wedding contest is the brain child of Tom Johnson, Magnolia's executive director. Magnolia, founded in the late 1600s, is America's oldest public garden and the last large-scale, romantic-style garden in the country

"Unlike a formal, well-manicured garden, Magnolia's gardens are designed to be in harmony with nature," Johnson said. "We are pleased to again offer this opportunity to make some couple's wedding possible on such a tranquil and historic landscape."

All but two of the following vendors - Artistic Eye Productions and Bellelina Skincare and Makeup Studio - participated in the last contest. The vendors and the services they’ll provide are:

ACW Limo - Limousine for Bride & Groom
Artistic Eye Productions, video services
Bellelina Skincare And Makeup Studio
