Cupcake® Announces "Dream Wedding" Contest Winners

LIVERMORE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2013) - Cupcake Vineyards® announced today that Valeria Melo and Lee Waters of Orlando, Fla., are the 2013 winners of the Love Deliciously Dream Wedding Contest and were awarded complete wedding coordination by expert wedding planner and author Alison Hotchkiss; wedding day photography by celebrity photographer Elizabeth Messina; and $5,000 toward wedding expenses -- a prize package worth over $65,000.

"We'd like to extend our congratulations to the contest winners, Valeria and Lee," said Cupcake's winemaker, Adam Richardson. "Hundreds of engaged couples pinned their dream wedding details on Pinterest, but Valeria and Lee's board far exceeded the contest judging criteria."

"We are so grateful to have won! Having Alison help plan our wedding is a luxury we didn't even consider, given our budget. Elizabeth's photography is exactly our style, and we know she'll be able to capture all of our special moments," said Valeria Melo. "The $5,000 is huge, especially given our original budget of $10,000. Winning the contest is truly like a dream."

Valeria and Lee's wedding will take place in February 2014 at Lake Doe Campground, in the Ocala National Forest. For more details about their winning Pinterest board and their reaction to winning the contest, visit our blog at
