After posting about it for what feels like forever, the "Fall, In Love" contest has finally come to a close. Voting ended last night at 11:59 p.m. and I almost had to super glue my lips shut so I wouldn't shout from the roof tops who the winner is! I felt like I was watching a reality TV show as the votes streamed in!
To the couples who entered: Can I just tell you how thankful I am that you found enough value in our contest to continuously bug your friends and family to vote?! Honestly, it is such an honor to know how much you all value photography and great event styling. But there were TWO couples who fought like champs the entire week...bringing in a combined total of 1,217 votes! I can't handle the suspense any longer...so here is the OFFICIAL final vote tally through the voting app...
FIRST PLACE, CONGRATULATIONS CAYLA + BEN!! Mekina and I are SO excited for you, and we know you worked hard for this! We are so excited to share an AWESOME day with you on Saturday. I still cannot even believe how close it was for the top two couples these past few days! So close, that we decided we had to award 2nd and 3rd place prizes!
Second place was only 35 votes away, and I can't even image that kind of let down. So, I would like to award Sara + Luis with a free 30-minute portrait session! You guys so deserve to at least have a couple of beautiful photos after all of your efforts! :)
Third place goes to Melissa + Stephen! I've entered contests before and I know how hard it can be to get 75 friends to vote! I would like to give you $50 off one of my Love Sessions!
I'll send all the winners an email shortly with more details regarding their prize and how to redeem it! :)
Lastly, Mekina and I would like to thank every single friend, family member, complete stranger who voted for these beautiful couples! I am so excited to get to know some of you through my facebook page. Please feel free to comment on photos or spark up a conversation through messaging - I'd love to get to know some of you!
Love of love, Cassi Claire
