Vote for Your Favorite Engagement Video Couple by May 31
April 26, 2007

New York, NY - The first-ever, Video Voting Vacation Giveaway has been announced by Brides.com for Engagements on Ice couples videotaped by WEVA members. You can vote three times — once for your favorite video couple’s “Real Proposal” video, once for the Sandals vacation your favorite couple should win for their honeymoon, and once for the Sandal’s vacation YOU would like to win!

Watch the Videos and Vote Now - Click Here! Voting ends May 31, 2007. Over 10 million readers per year are driven to Brides.com, owned by Conde Nast, from Brides, Modern Bride, Elegant Bride, and 16 Brides regional magazines.

Promotion was enhanced further when clips from the Engagements on Ice videos, produced by WEVA members, were aired earlier this month on CBS’s Entertainment Tonight to announce that video voting had officially opened on Brides.com.

WEVA members completed shooting and editing of “Engagements on Ice” with Brides.com, the "#1 source for wedding ideas," as part of a new co-promotion between Brides.com and The Rink at Rockefeller Center in New York City for the winter season. Brides.com and WEVA worked with the legendary ice rink to capture the emotional and heart-tugging surprise proposals made on the ice.

"The Rink at Rockefeller Center is one of the most romantic places I can think of for a marriage proposal, and we’re thrilled to have WEVA working with us for ‘Engagements on Ice,’" said Brides.com Editor-in-Chief Theresa DiMasi.

Engagement Videos Receiving National Recognition

WEVA International members whose videos are displayed are recognized on the popular Brides.com website. Each Engagement Video is shown with a hotlink to the WEVA member's own website. WEVA members participating in this groundbreaking project include, Tim Sudall of Video One Productions, Inc; Louis Piscone of Avanti Media Group; Gary Gellman of Gellman Images; Natalie & Robert Neal of Glass Slipper Productions; and Dennis Petoff of LI-Da Video.

"Engagements on Ice" videos are being promoted throughout the Brides.com website and can be viewed and enjoyed by millions this season. The Real Proposal videos are also being promoted through email newsletters, and through other promotional avenues.
