Garrettsville – If you have recently become engaged, have been engaged for some time, or would like to renew your wedding vows, why not enter for a chance to become Garrettsville Summerfest’s First Couple!

This year’s Vegas-style theme, “The Biggest Game In Town”, easily lends itself to thoughts of wedding chapels and getting married. But don’t worry, you won’t need to dress like Elvis to say “I do” at Summerfest.

Send the committee a letter and tell us why you would like to be Summerfest’s First Couple. The selected couple will need to provide their own attire and rings, but they will receive everything else they need to tie the knot.

Start off your wedding with uniquely-designed invitations by Villager Printing so you can invite your friends. Luann from The Golden Mirror will pamper the bride with a hairstyle befitting a queen. Art-n-Flowers and The Bay Window will make sure your floral needs are fresh and fun. Choose to get married by Mayor Moser or Rev. Adkins and Harpist Ellen Eckhouse will play  wedding music as you walk down Main Street to the Main Stage. The couple and their guests will then attend a private reception. While at the reception they will toast with champagne from SkyLane Drive-Thru and local area wines from The Cellar Winery and Candlelight Winery and share in the age-old tradition of cutting the wedding cake provided by Carolyn’s Cakes.

After dinner at Main Street Grill and Brewery, and enjoying the largest fireworks display in the area, the happy couple will receive accommodations at the Hiram Inn. Then the winning couple will return on Sunday to ride in the Summerfest Grand Parade, which steps off at noon. Ronda Brady Photography will be on hand to capture all your wedding memories.

Enter for a chance to be the First Couple and celebrate at the biggest party in Northeast Ohio. Send your letters and a photo to Garrettsville Summerfest’s First Couple, c/o The Weekly Villager, PO Box 331, Garrettsville, OH 44231. Deadline for all submissions is April 29, 2011.
