Wedding dreams were realized on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 7:30 AM for Donaliquea and Wence winners of Bahamas@sunrise Bahamas Dream Wedding 2. When the couple were married in a live televised wedding ceremony at the British Colonial Hilton, downtown Nassau.
It is the second time that a local wedding has been televised live on the Bahamas’ National Television Station ZNS 13 and it is estimated that some eighty thousand persons may have watched the event.
The winners of the Bahamas@sunrise promotion Donaliquea and Wence, won an all expense pay wedding package including a Caribbean honeymoon. And in the process had their wedding planned entirely by the audience of the program. As every element of the wedding including the wedding cake, bride and bridesmaids dresses, groom and groomsmen attire, rings, wedding location and even the wedding reception menu were selected by the audience.
It may be fair to say that if the audience voting on the wedding elements were anything like those selected the couple in the first place, then the wedding planning was done by their families and friends, as an estimated 8,500 persons voted for the couple during the contest.

Donaliquea and Wence first met in 1997 and soon became very good friends, eventually becoming engaged in 2004. But the couple separated in 2006 to allow themselves more time to grow and pursue individual goals.
And as love would have it the couple got engaged a second time in 2011 and this time fate rewarded their wedding dream with an all expense paid wedding and honeymoon.
The beach side wedding ceremony was performed by Dr. Richard Pinder, Senior Pastor at Bahamas Faith Ministries, the couple home church and witnessed by scores of family and friends.
The couple will be honeymooning at the Double Tree by Hilton in Costa Rica, the overwhelming choice of the Bahamas@sunrise viewers, as 76 percent of them voted for the Costa Rica as the honeymoon destination.
A clear indication that wedding dream do come true. And you can see more of the pictures from Bahamas@sunrise Bahamas Dream Wedding 2
