Blake Shelton “God Gave Me You” Contest


This morning we shared Blake Shelton’s recent wedding. He is completely smitten with his new wife, Miranda Lambert, and sings many songs on his latest album about love – so perfect for weddings, right?! Well, I think his current single “God Gave Me You” would make a perfect wedding song for all you country fans out there! If you haven’t heard it, check out his ultra sweet video right here featuring his new wife :)

So, now the fun news! Blake and his talented video team want to create a an original video for one lucky couple using the winning couple’s personal photos and “God Gave Me You” as the soundtrack. The winner will have the option of using their wedding photos, engagement photos (to play this at your wedding!) or whatever you would like as the visuals that will be used to create your one of a kind video. It’s up to you!

AND – this is the cool part, especially for big fans of Blake – Blake Shleton will add a special message as an into to the video just for the two of you. Pretty, awesome, right? So, to enter it’s pretty easy, just fill out the info below by Friday Oct, 21 at 8pm PST.

The contest is now over and we have selected a winner! Congrats to Faye! Here is Faye’s sweet story..

Winning this contest would be so special to both my fiancé and I. We are planning on getting married May 26th 2012, he is in the United States Marine Corps so we spend a lot of time away from each other which is hard on us both but the times we get together are absolutely amazing. He was home for 10 days in September and during that time I showed him this song and he fell in love with it as well as I did the first time I heard it. When ever it would come on the radio he would start to sing it to me it was so sweet. I would LOVE to play a video of this song at the wedding especially with photos from our engagement shoot in it. We already have this song as one of the songs to be played at the wedding. Its so hard being away from each other for so long and when I saw this contest I got super excited and im crossing my fingers hoping we win. The photo attached is one of our engagement photos.
