Md. couple tie the knot after winning free $80,000 wedding in Arena Stage contest
It was a big day for a Maryland couple who just tied the knot. What made it even more special was that their $80,000 wedding was free!
It was all part of Arena Stage's wedding giveaway contest, which was inspired by its upcoming musical production of "Fiddler on the Roof."
Kaisha Sutton and Quinton Huguley won the contest after showing why they were the perfect match to receive the wedding of their dreams.
Their wedding package included Arena Stage as their venue, a reception for 175 guests that included a cake, catering, flowers, wedding day photography and videography, event planning services, a bridal suite, a photo booth and everything else you could possibly think of for the big day.
Kaisha is a D.C. native while Quinton is from Temple Hills, Md.
They first met in 2008 on their first day of classes at Mount St. Mary's University.
Now, he is a Department of Defense police officer and she works at the state department.
They both now reside in Upper Marlboro, Md.
These two 24-year-old college sweethearts competed against 100 other couples and were selected by the upcoming production's director and actor.
One big example of their love they presented to the judges was a new tradition they established. They created a time capsule to celebrate their favorite memories as a couple.
The couple regularly posts funny videos of their daily life adventures on their YouTube page. A banner on their page says it is a "romantic comedy of a relationship."
"I think one of the things that made our video submission unique was it really kind of reflective of who we are as a couple and who we are as people," said Kaisha. "I think we are both pretty personable, and videos and all of those kinds of things are things that we do because of our YouTube channel. We are really passionate about making videos and we just have fun doing it."
Congratulation to the happy couple! We wish you all the best!
