The full release follows:
After three months of contest submissions from all over the world, Clay Hill Farm announced the five couples who will begin their campaign to secure the most public votes with an eye on the prize- an inclusive green wedding ceremony and reception at Clay Hill Farm in York, Maine on the summer solstice, June 21, 2009.
With applications pouring in from all over the country, Clay Hill Farm’s panel of judges chose the contestants they felt best creatively demonstrated an understanding of the contest message. Among the finalists is 1996 Cave Spring graduate, Tiffany Jackson and her fiancee Hosea Sandstrom from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
Tiffany is a licensed naturopathic physician and owns EcoHealth & Wellness in Mount Pleasant, SC. She specializes in nutrition, corporate wellness and body cleansing retreats. Hosea is a John’s Island firefighter and owner of a gym called Lowcountry CrossFit. They both have dedicated their careers to sustained health and vitality by teaching others how be more healthy and prevent disease.
Together, they share their love for each other and the environment by promoting a level of wellness that encourages not only self-awareness and presence, but beyond that ~ a link to, and connection with the natural world.
“We are so proud of the finalists in this contest,” says Jennifer Lewis-McShera, Clay Hill Farm’s senior wedding consultant and founder of the Green Wedding Giveaway contest. “The contest asked engaged couples to creatively explore the parallel between a commitment to each other and a commitment to the earth, and these five hit it out of the park. They really understood the contest message and made it their own. We are all green in some way and they celebrated their shade. Bravo!”
Jackson and Sandstrom submitted a highly crafted and unique vision board, an essay and beautiful original song they wrote entitled, BREATHE. Visit the website www.greenweddinggiveaway.com to view their submissions and cast your vote.
While phase one of this contest encouraged creativity, awakening and exploration of a green connection, phase two will involve the public as the resourcefulness of the five finalists is challenged in their effort to attract public votes with creative PR strategies. Old-fashioned campaigning will have a modern twist, much like green has its contemporary roots in traditional values. The couple with the most online votes by midnight on February 8th 2009, will be the Grand Prize winner. Ballots are available to the public at www.greenweddinggiveaway.com The Grand Prize winner will be announced just before Valentine’s Day on February 13th.
