PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Four engaged couples are competing for a chance to get married atop a float in the Tournament of Roses Parade.
Farmers Insurance announced the finalists Tuesday. The company will sponsor the nuptials aboard “The Love Float” in what, they say, will be the first wedding ever to be held during the Rose Parade.
The winning pair will win a trip to Pasadena, along with six guests of their choosing, a wedding dress and tuxedo, wedding rings and hair and makeup for the bride. Farmers will also cover the marriage license fees and give the couple two tickets to the Rose Bowl game.
The insurance company selected the four finalists below and the public is encouraged to vote for the winning couple online.
The four finalists are:
- Joe and Ashley, of Missouri: “These high school sweethearts were separated once by Joe’s tour in Afghanistan. Now they’ve found each other again and are never letting each other slip away.”
- Oscar and Michelle, of Northern California: “From different backgrounds, this couple found common ground and bonded over their love for country music and dance. Together, their relationship has blossomed into something even greater and Oscar and Michelle are excited to be one another’s dance partner forever.”
- Angel and Lydia, of Southern California: “A minor accident landed Lydia and Angel in the right spot at the right time. Lydia tripped while walking and Angel was there to catch her. The two have been inseparable since.”
- Nicole and Gerald, of Virginia: “Nicole and Gerald were friends in high school, but lost touch until kismet brought them together again. The two knew it was meant to be the minute they reconnected.
People can vote through Nov. 13 online at “The Love Float.” The winning couple will be announced prior to Thanksgiving.
