Kristyn and Jason Wilczek of Miami found luck in Las Vegas on Dec. 13, 2014 or 12.13.14, the last sequential date of the 21st century. The couple won a Las Vegas Facebook #IDoRedo wedding contest after their dream wedding fell apart earlier this year (Photo credit: Las Vegas News Bureau).
“The day before our wedding, we were robbed while taking a few engagement photos before the rehearsal dinner. The suspects got away with my wedding band, my grandmother’s antique ring, my suitcase that had all of my jewelry and clothes for the wedding day, along with our custom sneakers, laptop, my purse and wallet,” said Kristyn Wilczek. “Even though our items were never found, our love triumphs over all and I’m thankful we still have each other.”
The couple and their six friends have enjoyed the ultimate weekend getaway. The Wilczek’s exchanged vows atop the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel at The LINQ Promenade. The breathtaking skyline offered the perfect backdrop for a couple whose love will last an eternity.
The grand prize also included roundtrip airfare and a two-night stay at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. The wedding party enjoyed a true culinary experience for their rehearsal dinner, inside the exclusive Joel Robuchon at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Winner of Michelin’s Three Star, Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond, and Wine Spectator’s Grand Award, Joel Robuchon has redefined Las Vegas fine dining. The Salon at Vdara provided a relaxing experience for the bride and three guests with their organic pedicure treatment. The bride was also pampered with a makeup application and hair updo, compliments of the salon.
The gentlemen also had some pre-wedding fun, enjoying an adrenaline rush at the Richard Petty Driving Experience. It’s the only driving attraction in Las Vegas that allows guests on the 1.5 mile tri-oval superspeedway that the NASCAR pros race on. The guests rode shotgun in a NASCAR race car, for three laps at speeds up to 160 mph.
Once the lucky couple said “I do” they were whisked away to celebrate in celebrity style, enjoying a feast of signature dishes from LAVO Italian Restaurant at The Palazzo before heading over to the famed TAO Nightclub at The Venetian for a VIP table experience while they danced to the sounds of DJ Justin Credible. Wonderland Bakery located in Downtown Summerlin created the ultimate “I Do” sweet experience for the lucky couple that included an elegant, sophisticated and delicious cake, sweet table, favors and a welcome basket.
