"When we heard Douglas' story, we were inspired," said Chuck Haag, head of operations at Stonebrook. "It's a story that reminds us that love is a miracle and has miraculous power.
THORNTON, CO, July 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After receiving numerous entries in the Military Wedding Giveaway, on July 4 -- our nation's birthday and a great opportunity to celebrate our veterans -- award-winning north Denver wedding venue Stonebrook Manor selected the military couple of Douglas Montgomery and Darya as its free wedding winners.
In his entry, Douglas told of how he had contracted MS as a result of injuries in the line of duty, and for 16 years he had been told he would never walk again. Then he met Darya, a neurology nurse who showed compassion for his injuries and pain and shared with him her engaging stories. He then invited her to the Marine Corps Ball, and her love inspired him to walk so he could take her to the ball on his own two feet and not in a wheelchair.
As winners of the contest, Douglas and Darya will receive a complete wedding for 100 guests, including 7.5 hours for the ceremony and reception, hors d'oeuvres, champagne toast and flutes, coffee service, soda, Tuscany menu items, cake cutting service, staff, and more!
"When we heard Douglas' story, we were inspired," said Chuck Haag, head of operations at Stonebrook. "It's a story that reminds us that love is a miracle and has miraculous power. We were happy to see the response to his story by visitors to our Facebook page, and we look forward to helping him and Darya plan their dream wedding." Douglas and Darya have not announced a wedding date.
More information about this contest and future events is available on our Facebook page or our website.
