Why do you think it would be fun to get married on the ice? I think weddings should be memorable and this would be something unique and different. Plus with all the fans and our family there this would be an event to remember by all in attendance. Also, I have pictured us taking a swing at the puck together as one instead of a kiss.
Why should you win this contest? We feel we should win this contest because one, we love each other and because of circumstances out of our control we were not able to get married when planned. Our kids were really looking forward to seeing us get married, but it did not happen. Personally, I feel that we both have done so much for the community and been faithful to God, and we just believe that we would be a great model couple for all to see.
