So you all have probably heard of all the buzz Belize is getting this year 2012 being The Year of The Maya and you have probably also heard of the Epic Event that is going down on 12/12/12. Yes, I’m taking about The Maya Marriage of Many brought to you by The Romantic Association of Belize. It is going to be a once in a lifetime experience that only a few will be able to boast about. Here is the Official Press release.
For One Local Bride, Valentines Day just turned South, way South…All the way to Belize, Central America!
A Frisco, TX bride-and-groom-to-be who entered the www.2012weddingsbelize.com Facebook Maya Marriage of Many contest is about to get a big surprise! Will it be the Grand Prize or an amazing Runner Up package?
Influency Group in Frisco contacted the Blushing Bride Boutique on Main Street to identify the perfect couple to participate in the contest. They worked diligently to inform as many people as possible about the contest and get them to fall in love with their story and vote for them in hopes of winning a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be married in the Mayan Mountains of Belize on the steps of the 3200 year old ancient Mayan Palace of Cahal Pech on 12/12/12.
Our local couple is within the top two slots to win the Grand Prize – one of the only 12 coveted available Bridal Packages for the Maya Marriage of Many on 12/12/12. The Grand Prize is valued over $16,000 and includes the exotic, exclusive wedding ceremony and a honeymoon on the tropical paradise island of Ambergris Caye. The ceremony will be orchestrated by Lara Goldman of Romantic Travel Belize, in conjunction with luxury wedding planner Lisa Light of Lisa Light Destination Bride and celebrity photographer, Terry Gruber, among others. Second Prize is Wedding for Two plus a Free 5 Night Package in Belize, and many other amazing prizes valued over $3000.
The 12.12.12 Event will bring together 12 ‘blushing brides’ and their fiancés, along with six of their closest friends and family. This incredibly romantic, intimate and elegant affair is one befitting of its origins. The Maya Marriage of Many will be the one and only time multiple weddings will take place together on any Maya site in Belize, therefore, each couple’s love story is forever woven into the fabric of Mayan culture and tradition.
The 12.12.12 Event is being held in honor of the last remaining days of the 5126 year old Mayan calendar and the beliefs of many will be tested as time ticks down in 2012. On December 21, 2012, the world as we know it will end – or so it’s thought by those who believe the culmination of the 5126 year old Mayan calendar signals the end of time. Of course, the Maya who still live in Belize, would beg to differ. Many of the Maya in Belize, the epicenter of the ancient Mayan world, reject popular doomsday scenarios and instead see the calendar’s end as a joyous time of spiritual rebirth, renewal and new beginnings.
“As the home of the Western Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef and majestic mountains dotted with Maya sites, Belize is a culturally rich destination wedding location for those looking to celebrate their love and good fortune in a truly epic way,” says Lara Goldman, a destination management consultant and owner and founder of Romantic Travel Belize. “Since this is the only place in the Yucatan where you can get married on the actual Maya Palace’s themselves. The site of this epic event dates back to 1200 BC. Guests will truly experience something extraordinary.”
The Big Reveal, including a formal announcement of the Grand Prize winning couple, will be made at a press conference the morning of February 13 at 10:30 a.m. inside the Lebanon Church on the grounds of the Frisco Heritage Center with Councilman John Keating, Lara Goldman, and representatives from the Frisco Convention & Visitors Bureau, Influency Group, Blushing Bride Boutique, and more.
Later that day, there will be an evening “UnBelizeably in Love Cocktail Reception” and event at the Frisco Heritage Center Depot February 13 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 6321 Page Street. The event will include exclusive vendors for all things weddings, a Belize information booth, wine and food, a fashion show, and giveaways on a local, national and international level. You will not want to miss this event – the public is invited to attend.
