Susan Riley, Kevin Jaworski Marry After Winning Stuart Magazine’s Wedding Contest

What they do:

Susan, 25, works for Seacoast Bank and Kevin, 28, is a deputy sheriff for Indian River County.

How they met:

Susan and Kevin met at a mutual friend's birthday party. They were seated across from each other and talked through the entire dinner.

How they knew they'd met “the one”:

For Kevin, there was no defining moment when he realized Susan was “the one.” “I enjoyed every moment I've had with her since we met,” he says. For Susan, it was when Kevin met her family for Easter. “I think seeing him fit in so well with my family really sealed the deal for me,” she says.

On the proposal:

Kevin proposed to Susan after a carriage ride through St. Augustine. “I barely had time to get the words out before she yelled, ‘Yes!'” Kevin says.

What made the day special:

Susan's dad, Bill Riley, built the arbor that arched above the couple as they said their vows. At the reception, Kevin says the music and atmosphere were perfect. “I don't think the dance floor was empty at any point during the night,” he says.

Last winter, Susan and Kevin won the Stuart Magazine wedding giveaway contest by submitting an essay explaining why they deserved a dream wedding. Scroll down to see the list of vendors got together and chose the couple, donating their services for a total-valued package of $8,500.
