More than 23,000 YouTube views land two lovebirds the American wedding they always wanted

Watch a real live couple marry inside a living window during Night of the Luminaria. Winners of Galena’s Wedding in a Window contest say their vows in front of a crowd of spectators during the most romantic evening of the year.

It's no secret that Galena, Ill. is the perfect place to get married. This little town that happens to be a premier vacation destination, is giving one couple a dream wedding... with a twist! Yuanzhang Zheng and Ruiying Zhang, both from China, entered Wedding in a Window with the hopes of winning an American wedding. YouTube votes were cast by viewers from all over the world in favor of their crazy idea. Ultimately, a panel of judges chose Zheng and Zhang as the lucky couple to participate in Wedding in a Window, with prizes totaling more than $10,000.

The wedding will take place in a storefront window during Living Windows on the city's 1800s Main Street Sat., Dec. 12. If that's not romantic enough, it is also Night of the Luminaria so the city will be glistening with the twinkle of more than 5,000 candlelit luminaries.

Yuanzhang and Ruiying have won a night they will never forget. Their prize package includes four nights in a private cottage, photography, flowers, wedding attire, transportation, wedding bands and everything else a couple needs for a full wedding and reception.
