Happily Ever Hitched

Close your eyes and picture this: Your toes are in the cool sand as the sun is setting. Small waves are lapping along the shoreline as a light breeze wisps through your hair. Fragrant florals are all around, enveloping you and your fiancé as you say “I Do” in an intimate autumn ceremony.

The most important day of your life. Your very own waterfront dream. Absolutely free.

Wait, what? Bet your eyes are open now…

Sunset Beach Resort, a newly renovated luxury campground located just outside the heart of Cape Charles, Va., is searching for an adventurous couple to get “Happily Ever Hitched” at its personal paradise on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Think romantic destination wedding, but without the outrageous money or miles.

The winning couple will win an exclusive wedding package worth $15,000 that includes a sunset ceremony for up to 50 guests on a private beach; a reception with appetizers, dinner and soft drinks at The Jackspot, the property’s beachfront restaurant; three-night accommodations at the resort; entertainment (two-hour cocktail and three hours of dance music); officiating by Pastor Kelvin Jones; flowers by Sea Glass Floral; hair by Melanie Widgeon (bride only); makeup by Sarah Beth Perry (bride only); wedding cake by Incredible Edibles; photography by Lt Grey; and wedding coordination and decorating by Alison to the Altar.

The couple will be married Oct. 19, 2017.

“We are excited to host a dream destination wedding for a special couple,” said Deserie Lawrence, Chief Marketing Officer for Blue Water Development Corporation, which owns the resort. “Our private beach surrounded by 1,700 acres of ecologically-protected lands is the perfect backdrop for a sunset wedding.”

To enter, submit a one-minute video that tells your personal love story — how the two of you met, how you just “knew” it was love, and how you made it official with a proposal. Post your video to Sunset Beach Resort’s Facebook page, and encourage your friends and family to show you some love. The public will vote for the top three couples, and the finalist will be chosen by Sunset Beach Resort staff.
