Sebasco Estates, ME (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
Sebasco Harbor Resort, a vacation destination of over 550 acres on the rocky mid-coast of Maine, today announced the final call for entries to the Pure Maine Wedding Giveaway. In the Giveaway, one lucky bride- and groom-to-be will win a destination wedding for up to 200 guests in 2009. The deadline for video entries is September 9, 2008. Winners will be announced in October 2008 and the Pure Maine Wedding will take place in 2009.
"So far, the video entries have been very creative and heart-felt, said Bob Smith, proud proprietor and official 'Lighthouse Keeper' at Sebasco Harbor Resort. "I'm just thrilled that we'll be able to give one of these young couples the Pure Maine wedding of their dreams. Sebasco has long been a place where people fall in love, get married, fall in love again, and come back for generations."
To date, video entries have been received from soon-to-be brides and grooms from as close as Greater Portland to as far away as Honolulu. Homemade costumes, artistic sets, and even "Brady Brunch" style graphics and music were employed to make the video entries stand out. While some contestants are originally from Maine and have enjoyed the state's stunning beauty and diverse recreational offerings since childhood, others have traveled from distances, such as Wisconsin, Washington, D.C., and New York, to experience Pure Maine. The entries range from humorous but heart-felt to emotional and poignant.
One groom is currently deployed by the Navy in Iraq and hopes to be returning this November, while another is closing in on his battle with cancer. All contestants explain in their videos why it would be meaningful to have their special day at Sebasco Harbor Resort.
