New Jersey Life Wedding Magazine and celebrated jeweler Euphoria New York of Englewood NJ whose collection can be viewed on neimanmarcus.com, sponsored the Infinite Love Wedding Band prize. The winner who resides in Old Tappan, NJ says she and her fiancé were already very familiar with Long Beach Island. Jill Brower has summered in Brant Beach for most of her life and was very excited upon hearing about the Wedding Road Show. “A friend emailed me the link to the chamber’s registration site,” stated Brower “I was undecided where to hold our wedding, but after spending the day at the Road Show I am leaning towards LBI.”
The First Prize winner received a Couples Retreat Spa Package from Freedom Spa and Salon as well as a $100 Gift Certificate from Anchor Limousine Service. Sandra Kelly and her fiancé Shaun who reside in Bayville called her win the perfect ending to a perfect event. “I had no idea about the shops and services that were available so close to home”, said Sandra, “The spas and dress shops were what I was looking for.” Sandra is planning her March 26 nuptials and has added Southern Ocean County to her radar to help finalize her arrangements. She commented that the chamber’s Wedding Road Show set a standard far above a typical bridal show, the ability to move around, interact and experience allowed her and her fiancé to wedding plan at their own pace.
The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce plans to continue the Wedding Road Show for 2010. This event was made possible by support received from the New Jersey Department of Travel and Tourism; Media Sponsors included NJWedding.com, WedAlert, Brides.com, and New Jersey Life Wedding Magazine.
