news and press :: NBC throws a wedding at The Prado…meet the winning couple!

NBC Channel 39 recently held a contest for a free dream wedding giveaway. The winning couple, Stefanie & Jerome Heard, met in an unbelieveable and touching scenario. While Jerry was starting treatment for leukemia, Stefanie was his admitting nurse (and is a bone marrow transplant nurse here in San Diego). They fell in love instantly and ended up being chosen by the San Diego public to win the dream wedding of a lifetime! Jerry is feeling well in remission, but he has a long journey ahead. Thankfully he has an incredible new wife who will care for him as they enjoy the beginning of their life together.

Our very own San Diego Weddings of Distinction members, The Prado, Sweet Cheeks Baking Co., and SENSATION Showband were involved in the endeavor. Sweet Cheeks donated the “show” wedding cake for the original voting (5 tiers) to Rady Children’s hospital and then made the same cake for the actual wedding at The Prado. The wedding guests danced the night away to San Diego’s finest party band SENSATION Showband .

If you’ve ever thought about having your wedding at The Prado, this is a video you won’t want to miss.
Congratulations Jerry and Stefanie!
