Tyler, Texas (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
Centaur Arabian Farms, a bed and breakfast and a wedding and event center on 10 acres outside Tyler, is honoring military couples engaged to be married through a new discount program and a love letter contest.
Engaged military couples, where either the bride- or groom-to-be is enlisted military or a veteran, will receive a $1,000 discount off one of Centaur’s wedding packages through its new Operation Tie the Knot program. Centaur is also sponsoring a contest to find the best love letter written by a member of an engaged military couple. The contest winner will be announced on Independence Day and will receive a Celesta’s Love wedding package valued at $2,500.
“We knew we wanted to do something to honor the military,” Eva Sealey said. She and her husband Bill have family members who served in the U.S. Navy. “It’s the least we can do. We feel so blessed every day that we get to enjoy our lovely home because they leave their homes to serve our country.”
The Operation Tie the Knot $1,000 discount can be applied to one of the Sealey’s three wedding packages, which are named in honor of their champion Arabian horses. Package prices before the discount range from $2,500 to $8,800.
The Celesta’s Love package includes a ceremony in the facility’s 700-square-foot custom-built ceremony pavilion and a reception in a renovated horse barn. Tables, chairs and linens are provided.
The Nobel Knight package includes all of the above plus white linen table cloths and additional table decorations, chandeliers in the ceremony pavilion and barn and valet parking for guests.
The Magic’s Moment package includes all of the above plus additional decorations in the ceremony pavilion, garden and barn, use of the pool/patio area, wedding day use of the bed and breakfast facilities, as well as wedding and groom’s cakes, hors d’oeuvres and non-alcoholic drinks during the reception.
Love letter contest entries should be sent to Eva Sealey, Centaur Arabian Farms, 10271 FM 2813, Flint, Texas 75762 or to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 18, 2010. A panel of local civilian and military representatives will judge the letters based on the quality of their content, which should include a description of their romantic courtship, the couple’s military story and desires and goals for married life.
The contest winner will be announced on Independence Day and will receive a Celesta’s Love wedding package. The $2,500 package for up to 150 guests includes a garden wedding in the ceremony pavilion with seating provided and a reception in Centaur’s authentic barn with tables, chairs and linens provided. It also includes six hours use of the property and onsite parking.
Details about Operation Tie the Knot and the love letter contest will also be announced during Centaur’s grand opening, which will be held from 4 p.m. to sunset, Sat., May 1, at the facility. The event is free and open to the public.
