Dunmore, Alberta – February 21, 2013 – Weddingstar Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of personalised wedding decorations, accessories and favours is pleased to present the winners and weddings of the 19th Annual Empire State Building Valentine’s Day Weddings Contest.

In collaboration with the iconic Empire State Building and celebrity event designer Preston Bailey, Weddingstar had the pleasure of sponsoring the weddings created for the winners of the "Love is in the Air" contest. Styled by Preston Bailey, all three couples had dream weddings that took place on February 14, 2013 at the Empire State Building.

To win the contest each couple had to submit videos to the Empire State Building's Facebook page and were then picked by Preston Bailey's team for their unique and inspiring stories. The three lucky couples who won were: Laurie-Ann & Daniel, Danielle & Michael and Kari & John. Each couples winning video can be found on the event page of the Empire State Building's Facebook listing [http://www.facebook.com/empirestatebuilding/app_119933741511529]. For even more detailed information about the couples, go to Preston Bailey's website under the heading “Bride Ideas” [http://brides.prestonbailey.com]

The “Love is in the Air” contest marked the 19th occasion of the Empire State Building Valentine's Day Weddings Event, which is the only day of the year couples can marry at the iconic building. Each winning couple tied the knot in a season themed ceremony made complete with Weddingstar accessories. Laurie-Ann and Daniel were married in a winter theme wedding, Danielle and Michael in a spring theme and finally Kari and John in a autumn themed event. Along with Weddingstar other premiere vendors included Sunpride Flora, Levy Lighting, Sylvia Weinstock Cakes, Nuage Designs, and Gio Draping Events which contributed to the elegant ceremonies and receptions.

With towering floral displays and tables full of candles and blossoms, the reception and ceremonies were a sight to behold.

“Weddingstar would like to extend our most heartfelt congratulations to the couples and to Preston himself who was married the night before in a star-studded and dazzling affair.”
