Free Wedding-- No Kidding-- At Zach Scott (I'm Officiating)

Hey Y'all,
Zach Scott is having a contest to give a free wedding to a couple who enters the best 2 minute YouTube video in a contest that's happening right now. The press release is below. I'm officiating the wedding and lots of super groovy local folks are kicking in with wedding planning, catering, dress, etc. The contest is happening right now, so if you want to get hitched, and you're on a budget, this could be a most fun solution. Please pass the info along to anyone you know who might be interested. Also, as you'll see-- winners can use this as a vow renewal if they are already married. Commitment ceremony is also cool. Contest deadline is March 28th-- coming right up!
