When asked what he loved about his bride, Jesse said, “Everything.”

The couple won the wedding in a radio contest, beating out 61 other entries.

“It was interesting that they weren’t all from Florida. We had several from out of state,” said Brenda Franco, key accounts manager at Cumulus Broadcasting’s Z-96 FM WZNS Fort Walton Beach, FL.

The prize included everything from the dress to the wedding cake.
“I didn’t think we was actually going to win,” Jesse said. “It was a surprise, a very big surprise.”
