PHOENIX -- Same-sex couples were given the opportunity to audition for the chance to win a wedding worth $60,000.

"This has been long in the works, very exciting for us," Ben Sinon, Wrigley Mansion General Manager, said. "We've been working on this specific event since the summer. Last summer we held an LGBT focused wedding show here at the mansion."

The "I Do with a View" giveaway auditions took place Monday starting at 8 a.m.

Couples had two minutes to win over the panel of judges by telling them about their love for each other and showcasing what makes them special.

The judges will choose the top five couples and put them on the Wrigley Mansion Facebook page for a public vote.

The five finalists will be announced Wednesday, Oct. 29.

The winner will be announced Nov. 5, and then they have eight days to plan their wedding before the wedding date on Nov. 13.

"We've got great support from vendors - honeymoon suites, the cake, Royal Palms Resort and Spa with a staycation honeymoon after the actual ceremony, as well as the 100 person reception that's gonna be held here at the Wrigley Mansion," Sinon said.

Wrigley Mansion consistently ranks among the top wedding and special event venues in Arizona.
