CULVER CITY (CBSLA.com) — A Culver City couple is expected to tie the knot on Valentine’s Day in what’s expected to be the ultimate dream wedding valued at nearly $100,000.
Andre Mercier and Sierra Dickens will say “I do” at Citi Pond at Bryant Park in New York City for free … all thanks to TheKnot.com.
Initially, the pair planned to put off their wedding for a-year-and-a-half due to financial concerns but Dickens checked out TheKnot.com and found a “Dream Wedding Sweepstakes.”
The pair made a video and won the wedding giveaway.
CBS2′s Joy Benedict reports that the pair has not been able to choose any of the elements of their wedding. In fact, the public has been voting for a different element of their wedding each day.
Thus far, the rings, wedding theme and even Dickens’ dress have been picked.
Dickens was, however, able to narrow down her gown choices to four. She won’t know until the big day which gown the public chose.
“The weight that has been lifted off my shoulders because I don’t have to plan anything is just unbelievable,” Dickens said.
“We knew that we were gonna have to put our faith in the public and the public has definitely come through,” Mercier said.
Currently, the public is voting on Dickens’ hair and make-up. The bridesmaid dresses, cake and entertainment have yet to be chosen as well as the honeymoon — which they hope to turn into a charity trip.
“We would like to turn our honeymoon into a charity trip because we feel like so privileged,” Mercier said.
