2nd Annual Big Wedding Giveaway

PLAINVILLE, MA: Local wedding photographer Jen Osojnicki didn't realize what she was getting into when she offered a wedding giveaway contest last year. "I came up with the idea because I thought it would be a fun, exciting way to help a bride win her dream wedding, and it was. We offered some great prizes and the winning bride was thrilled," says Jen. Repeating the contest seemed like a good idea…and good ideas have a way of growing to become great. Within days of her decision to hold the 2nd annual Big Wedding Giveaway Contest, other local wedding vendors had jumped on board, and Ms. Osojnicki has now amassed donation of services and gift certificates for a true dream wedding--a prize worth nearly $20,000.  

The 2nd annual Big Wedding Giveaway Contest is an essay contest for engaged couples; entry submission runs from February 15, 2012 through February 24, 2012. Entrants must write an essay telling their story—how they met and fell in love—including details about why they deserve to win the prize, and send the essay, along with a recent photo of the couple, to Essays must be between 250-500 words long, and a group of judges will choose the top essays out of all the submissions. On February 29, 2012, these top essays will be posted on and opened for public voting on Ms. Osojnicki's blog (voting runs until 3:00pm March 6, 2012).  Wedding dates must also be included in each entry, as many of the vendors who are booked into 2013 must take their schedules into account when choosing the winner.  "Last year, some of the stories brought us to tears. It reminded me about why I love what I do," says Ms. Osojnicki. The winning couple will be announced at an event (details to follow) and crowned with—what else—a veil and top hat.

Local vendors donating their services to this Contest include:

Jen Osojnicki, Photographer
Nathan Suher, Filmmaker

Aside from providing a fun, exciting contest for brides, Ms. Osojnicki intends this contest to be a way to recognize and support local vendor companies. "I'm astounded at the generosity I'm seeing from local businesses in this contest, and I want to help get the word out about it. When small business owners band together, great things happen!"
