Love is in the air as the Kaminski House Museum gears up for its upcoming Wedding Showcase on the lawn and the Kossove Terrace.
Set for Sunday, April 29, from 1-4 p.m., the event will feature florists, caterers and other businesses providing wedding-related services to make dreams come true for couples planning one of the most important days of their lives.
The showcase will feature a $5,000 wedding-day prize package and drawings for bridal gifts and prizes. The prize package includes the museum’s $1,500 rental for the lawn and the Kossove Terrace, luxury accommodations in a local bed and breakfast, a wedding cake and other wedding-related gifts.
"Eight couples from throughout the Grand Strand have submitted their special stories of how they met, how the romance progressed and how he/she proposed," Museum Deputy Director Kim Leatherwood said. "All eight love stories will be on display at the showcase and attendees to the event will be asked to vote on their favorite love story. The winner of the prize package will be announced at the conclusion of the Wedding Showcase."
The event will also feature the latest wedding day fashions by Fabulous Reflections by Julie and a special exhibition of vintage wedding gowns from the collection of Melissa Levey. The gowns will be on display inside the Kaminski House Museum through the end of May.
