CreativeLive : Bride+Groom


Life is crazy beautiful. Often times more crazy, but when beautiful strikes, it’s awesome. Remember that wild adventure I’m taking with creativeLIVE? A couple weeks ago, I posted that we needed a real life couple who’d be willing to get married, and in turn for their generous participation, they’d get a free wedding. The response was amazing and the couples who took time to submit their videos blew me away. I was incredibly honored to hear their stories.

One of the couples was Laura and Billy. And they made the following video…

Laura and Billy want to win a free wedding with Jasmine Star from Laura Marchbanks on Vimeo.

Seeing them so in love and happy made my heart melt. The creativeLIVE team and I are happy to announce Laura and Billy as the contest winners! It was an incredibly hard decision, but after a few Skype conversations, we knew we found the perfect fit! The day will be made extra amazing with the help of Daniela of Bella Signature Design, one of Seattle’s premiere wedding coordinators. She has some amazing things in store and we’re stoked to have her talent for this event.

If you’d more information how you can participate this event online, definitely check out the creativeLIVE website. Or, if you’d like to join the fun in person, you can submit a video and hopefully score a seat for the actual event in Seattle. Don’t forget: The deadline is THIS Friday!

Happy Wednesday!

    The photoshoot was to benefit Portrait House. Laura put a lot of effort into this and I can not think of a more deserving person/couple!
