SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - It's a dream wedding for any couple: a beautiful wedding cake, fancy wedding dress, a rockin dj, an extravagant reception, a fancy photographer, spectacular decor--all free of charge!
The wedding giveaway was put on by The Clayton on the Park in Scottsdale, a new event venue that just opened up last month. They gave away the free wedding as part of their Grand Opening--the only stipulation: the lucky couple would have to get married literally the day they won!
Shasta Smith and Ronnie Cronin were the lucky couple. They went down to The Clayton on The Park to enter the contest on Wednesday. When asked on the application why they were deserving of a free wedding, the couple said they were broke and were planning to get married in a few years when they saved up enough money.
The couple got the news live on Good Morning Arizona at around 6:45am Friday night, their wedding was immediately scheduled for 7PM Friday night. The Bride and Groom rushed to get ready, picking out a wedding dress and tux later that morning, and inviting more than 40 friends for the “Impromptu I Do.”
