Havelock woman to get free wedding after winning contest

Now that she knows she won, Lanier is preparing her daughter to be the flower girl during the ceremony at South Harbor Wedding Chapel in Southport, she said.

“She’s my princes, so being the flower girl is the perfect role for her,” said Lanier, who met her fiancé eight months ago. “After all, it’s the three of ours’ wedding.”

The couple has not decided on a honeymoon destination, and they may very well wait, said Lanier.

“We’re elated and in shock,” said Lanier, who found out about winning the contest on Friday. “All I can do is thank them for this. It’s going to be a fairytale wedding — the one my Barbie’s wished they could have had.”


Samantha Prillwitz and Bryce Forth of Jacksonville couldn’t have asked for a better surprise at the end of their Skype interview, she said.

“I thought it was one of the required parts to applying,” Prillwitz, 24, said. “I never thought I’d have an opportunity to bring together the entire family for such a beautiful wedding.”
