From First Kiss To Finalists in “Say Yes” Wedding Sweepstakes
Robb Milne and Christina Wagner were childhood sweethearts. After her family was the victim of a home invasion, they moved into on-base housing at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. As luck would have it Robb lived right across the street. One night against a backdrop of stars, near a wishing well, he became her first kiss. As is inevitable, when you are in the military, her step-father was transferred and they moved away. The two kept in touch for some time but eventually they lost touch.
Thanks to the power of social media and Christina’s teenage daughter inquiring as to her first kiss, the two reconnected and fell in love again. At the time, she was living in Mesa, Arizona and he was a long time resident of Northern VA (Chantilly High School, Class of 1989) and living in Ashburn, Virginia. It didn’t take the two long before realizing the geographic gap had to be lessened and he moved to Arizona.
An epic love story required an equally epic proposal. Robb recruited friends and family for an all-day adventure filled with clues, puzzles and challenges that led Christina from location to location. At each stop, friends and family would help her on her quest to find Robb. If she solved all of the puzzles (including Morse code), digging for buried treasure, jumbled riddles and more, he would then ask her a very life changing question.
The entire day was captured on video by Sam Erdmann of Sam Erdmann Productions. After compiling the day and editing seven hours to seven minutes, the video was submitted to the Encanterra Country Club’s “Say Yes” Wedding Sweepstakes. They were selected along with 15 other couples, from nearly 200 entries. The couple who receives the most Facebook votes will win a designer wedding ceremony and reception at Encanterra worth more than $50,000. Voting opened at 12:01 a.m., Friday, March 14th (PDT) and will continue until 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, April 2nd (PDT).
All of the couples have been encouraged to spread the word through social media channels and requesting daily votes from friends and family. One vote per day, per valid Facebook account may be submitted. On April 5, 2014, the winning couple will be announced live during The Good Life Festival™ at Encanterra.
