Area Minister and Photographer to Offer Valentine’s Day Weddings

Taya Dianna, Altared Vows by Taya, and Paul Pruitt, Paul Pruitt Photography, have paired up to give local couples the chance to get married “Vegas-style” on the most romantic day of the year! 

Ladies and gentleman there’s no need to head out West, they are offering 25 betrothed couples the opportunity to have a romantic yet simple ceremony in the beautiful surroundings of the newly-opened Sheraton Wilmington South in New Castle.

 “Paul and I had played with this idea for quite some time. When we realized we could do something at the new Sheraton, we thought it would be a wonderful way to help local couples have a unique wedding ceremony without breaking the bank,” said Rev. Taya.

The setting will be the Susquehanna Room at the newly-renovated Sheraton Wilmington South in New Castle. The complete wedding package will cost each couple $200 and will include the services of an officiant, ceremony music, wedding photography package, and a personal wedding cake. Each couple can even invite several guests.
