Almost everyone has an image of what their wedding would look like when the time comes, and for couple Shannon Watson and Matt Zullo it involves not only matrimony but also the stress-free feeling that comes with not picking up the tab.

"We just want to enjoy our wedding," said Watson, 30. "Spend the day with our friends and family and celebrate. Matt and I have been dating for more than 12 years, so during that time we have had tons of people ask us, 'So, when are you two getting married?'

"The true answer to that questions is that we have not been able to afford to get married without putting a financial burden on our families or ourselves," she added. "So, when this contest came along, it seemed like the perfect chance at getting the dream wedding that we have always wanted."

Out of nearly 200 video submissions to the "Say Yes!" Wedding Sweepstakes held by Encanterra Country Club, Watson and Zullo were one of 16 couples selected as a finalists.
