The day is one year away, yet an early wedding present has already arrived for this South Carolina couple.
Morgan Crumpler and Jeremy Spitler of Charleston have won an all-inclusive wedding package – priced at $35,920.
The package was co-presented by The Willcox and Southern Living Magazine.
Due to this offer, the couple will not have to fret about their cake, flowers, photography or entertainment.
The wedding will take place at The Willcox.
“Everyone at The Willcox is very excited to have such a wonderful couple win the sweepstakes,” said Stephen Hale with HaleStorm communications.
Not only will the couple be married at The Willcox, but the hotel will also attend to the couple’s wedding planning, refreshments, hotel stay and provide them with spa accommodations.
Also contributing are All Star Tents and Events, Dianna Tornow Cakes LLC, Floyd and Green, Cote Designs, Giving Weddings, 4 Cats in the Doghouse, John Vaughn and Lionel Smith Ltd.
The Willcox is one of less than 40 Southern hotels in the Southern Living Magazine Hotel Collection.
It was through this connection that The Willcox became the host for this event, according to a release.
The sweepstakes ran in the magazine and on its website from Dec. 11 to Feb. 28.
Crumpler and Spitler were notified in May by email.
It was Crumpler who saw the initial ad.
“Jeremy didn’t believe me at first,” she said. “He made me call.”
Their scheduled wedding date is late-May of 2015.
The two plan on coming to Aiken before then.
They have been together for two years.
She works at East Cooper Hospital. He is a pilot with Endeavor Airlines.
“We are so blessed to have this opportunity and are looking forward to what is in store,” Crumpler said.
