OutRVA, ‘Say I Do!’ to give away all-expenses paid wedding at Lewis Ginter

OutRVA and Say I Do! have collaborated to offer LGBT couples an opportunity to win an all-expenses-paid wedding at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s Robins Tea House on March 7.

In September, Richmond Region Tourism launched OutRVA, a campaign designed to show people Richmond’s strong LGBT community and highlight the area as a travel destination.

The winning couple will say "I do" in a ceremony coordinated by event designer and floral artist Casey Godlove of Strawberry Fields Flowers & Gifts and marriage concierge, Ayana Obika of All About The Journey. The couple will receive wardrobe and styling, a custom wedding cake, florals, an overnight stay at the Linden Row Inn (including a suite on the day of the wedding for preparation), and a post-wedding brunch at the Hilton Garden Inn on Sunday, March 8. Professional photographers will document the day throughout Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and the wedding will be featured in upcoming tourism marketing promotions.

“Tourism is about helping visitors make memories that last a lifetime,” said Katherine O’Donnell, vice president of community relations at Richmond Region Tourism. “We’re excited to offer this opportunity, and to shine a spotlight on Richmond as a wonderful wedding destination for all couples.”

Couples entering the contest must be based in Virginia and available to attend the Say I Do! Dessert Soiree at the Renaissance on Sunday, Feb. 8, where the winning couple will be announced. The Say I Do! Soiree is a matchmaking event for LGBT couples and the LGBT community to meet pro-equality wedding vendors and LGBT-affirming businesses.

Eligible couples are encouraged to share their story on RichmondisOut.com by Jan. 31, 2015. A complete list of participating vendors can be found at http://www.RichmondisOut.com.
