SAN PEDRO, Belize and FRISCO, Texas, Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Janelle Franklin and Abel Garcia, Jr. were surprised to learn that their Valentine's Day took a sudden southern turn yesterday. The couple, from a suburb of Dallas, were informed at a Press Conference in Frisco, TX, that they won the Grand Prize wedding and honeymoon package in a pretty extraordinary contest, the www.2012weddingsbelize.com
Maya Marriage of Many.
The Grand Prize, worth $16,030, is one of only 12 coveted Bridal Packages for the Maya Marriage of Many that includes the exotic wedding ceremony and a honeymoon by Lara Goldman of Romantic Travel Belize, in conjunction with luxury wedding planner Lisa Light of Lisa Light Destination Bride and celebrity photographer, Terry Gruber, among others. "Janelle and Abel are an amazing couple and the perfect representatives of the Maya Marriage of Many. Janelle was born overseas, and they got engaged on the Eiffel Tower (they climbed it!), so their international flair is just perfect for this event. I could not have hand chosen a better couple to win this package. I look forward to spending the year with them," said Lara Goldman, owner of Romantic Travel Belize and contest organizer. "With the Big Reveal behind us and our cornerstone couple in place, now the attention shifts to the remaining 11 couples whose stories will be woven into the fabric of Mayan culture and tradition with this exclusive historical event."
The Maya Marriage of Many is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be married in the Mayan Mountains of Belize on the steps of the 3200-year old ancient Mayan Palace of Cahal Pech on 12/12/12. Only eleven more couples will have the honor of participating in this event being watched from around the world.
The 12.12.12 Event is being held in honor of the last remaining days of the 5126 year old Mayan calendar and the beliefs of many will be tested as time ticks down in 2012. On December 21, 2012, the world as we know it will end – or so it's thought by those who believe the culmination of the 5126 year old Mayan calendar signals the end of time. Of course, the Maya who still live in Belize, would beg to differ. Many of the Maya in Belize, the epicenter of the ancient Mayan world, reject popular doomsday scenarios and instead see the calendar's end as a joyous time of spiritual rebirth, renewal and new beginnings.
"As the home of the Western Hemisphere's largest barrier reef and majestic mountains dotted with Maya sites, Belize is a culturally rich destination wedding location for those looking to celebrate their love and good fortune in a truly epic way," says Goldman. "Since this is the only place in the Yucatan where you can get married on the actual Maya Palace's themselves. The site of this epic event dates back to 1200 BC. Guests will truly experience something extraordinary."
Couples wanting to share in this exclusive, momentous occasion, either to wed or to renew their vows, should contact Romantic Travel Belize immediately. Availability is extremely limited.
