Grand Hall at the Priory’s City of Pittsburgh First Responder Winter Lights Wedding™ Giveaway

Ten years ago, the Priory Hospitality Group launched its Winter White Wedding package – a wedding reception package which emphasized the beauty and grandeur of winter. In 2008, to celebrate the launch of this revolutionary wedding package, we held a drawing to give a complimentary Winter White Wedding to a military veteran or active duty member who had served in Iraq or Afghanistan. This became an annual event until the cessation of active hostilities in 2014.

Now it’s 2018, and time to refresh the Winter White Wedding. Making its debut in January through March 2019 is the Winter Lights Wedding™ package. Where the Winter White decorative theme focused on the stark beauty of snow, the Winter Lights Wedding™ package focuses on varying themes of light, and how that light is enhanced by the crispness of winter.

To commemorate the debut of our newly burnished Winter Lights Wedding™ package, we’ll be giving away a complimentary package to a current member in good standing of the City of Pittsburgh’s first responder forces – the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire, and Emergency Medical Services. In addition to the wedding reception package, courtesy of the Priory Hospitality Group, we’ve recruited a variety of other service providers who will be donating their time and talents, to create an almost cost-free wedding reception.

The winner will be chosen through a random drawing on September 25, 2018 – First Responder’s Day – on KDKA TV’s Pittsburgh Live television show. The Winter Lights Wedding™ reception must be held on a Friday or Sunday in January through March 2019. The value of the prize is in excess of $15,000. If you’d like to be considered, please just complete the application here and submit it by September 21, 2018. All applicants are bound by the Rules and Regulations attached to this page. Please read and review them before submitting the application.
