“We could not be more excited to start Hilary and David off on their life together with this grand prize. We had to scramble to pull off the surprise as they are heading out of town to plan their wedding, but the rush provided even more thrills for this special moment,” said Marc Bridge, the vice president of marketing at Ben Bridge. “We began the $100,000 Wedding of the Century sweepstakes last year to celebrate 100 years as a trusted family jeweler and we are pleased to continue this new tradition with such a wonderful couple.”
