CBS 6 and the Richmond Wedding Experience are giving one lucky couple the chance to win a “Wedding in a Week” at Hollyfield Manor.
Here’s David’s entry:
My name is David Johnson and I am a firefighter/medic with Hanover Fire and EMS. Lynnsey and I have been together for three years and have just recently become engaged.
As cliché as it may sound, Lynnsey has made me a better person; she has allowed me to become the real me. She sticks with me even though my career involves long hours, extreme stress, and considerable risk, and gives me nothing but love and support when I come home after a long night at work that has worn me down physically and emotionally.
Since she was a little girl, Lynnsey has dreamt of a beautiful wedding that I want more than anything to give her, but I don’t know if I can. With me working as a firefighter and Lynnsey just starting her career, everyday bills such as student loans, car payments, and rent make it hard enough to save an adequate amount of money for a decent wedding, but numerous recent health problems have set us back even more.
This wedding would change our lives. Lynnsey and I have been talking about getting married for years now and I know she wants a wedding, but it is not something that we can afford right now. We have had several conversations about what kind of wedding we could have and she recently told me that we could have a courthouse wedding and that it would not matter as long as she marries me. That is not what I want for her, for us. I want to give her, in one day, all the love and happiness she has given me in three years.
All I want this Christmas is to make Lynnsey happy, to give her what she deserves, and to finally call her my wife. I know there are probably an incalculable amount of people trying to win this wedding, but I had to at least try. Just know that if we win this wedding, it will make a huge difference in our lives and we will be forever grateful. Thank you so much for your consideration.
With the help of our team of wedding professionals, David & Lynnsey will get it all. From the dress to the reception and everything in between. The wedding is valued at more than $30,000! [CLICK here for the complete list of prizes]
