Reunion Resort launched its social media-driven Wedding of the Year contest on January 1, 2014. Couples who held their wedding at Reunion in 2014, and chose to participate in the Wedding of the Year contest, had their special day shared on Reunion Resort’s wedding blog, at


The blog posts were shared on the resort’s social media channels. Once the wedding was posted to the blog, it became eligible for voting via social media for 14 days. In addition to Reunion’s current social media followers, Wedding of the Year contestants were encouraged to have their friends and families vote by having them like and share their wedding on social media.


Throughout 2014, winning couples were announced each quarter. The quarterly winners received a $250 gift card to Reunion Resort and were entered for a chance to be the grand prize winner of Reunion Resort’s Wedding of the Year.


The grand prize winner was chosen through an online poll in addition to a Reunion Resort Wedding of the Year committee panel score. Forty percent of the qualifying couples’ scores came from social media and the remaining sixty percent came from Reunion Resort’s Wedding of the Year voting committee.
