This blog post is dedicated to the memory of:
Specialist Paul Conlon and First Lieutenant Donald Carwile.
Tanya Costigan Events was proud to be a part of the 2nd Annual
Marx Dream Wedding Giveaway! Marx Entertainment in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, hosts this giveaway each year to a couple that is either a veteran or active duty service member.
This year’s winner of a wedding worth $45,000 was Amber and Steve. Amber is an active duty Air Force Staff Sergeant and Iraq veteran. Steve is a Purple Heart recipient from Afghanistan, who was injured by a suicide bomber back in 2008, while serving with the 101st AirBorne Division, 1/506 Infantry Regiment. I loved being the wedding planner for these two super fun, amazing people, who met online while playing Call of Duty on XBOX.
Steve is a huge proponent of the Wounded Warrior Project and is a board member for Freedom Fighter Outdoors. He was recently on the morning talk show ‘The Talk’ on July 4th, talking about Wounded Warrior Project. You saw a sneak peek of one of their wedding photos, by Four Wings Wedding Photography, during that broadcast!
Enjoy the wedding photos and the clip of Steve on The Talk!
