Happy Friday….Herman here!
Trivia question for all you Oktoberfest brainiacs out there: Oktoberfest began as a celebration for what?
Ding, ding, ding: As a celebration for Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese of Bavaria in 1810.
Now that was a long time ago! In honor of Oktoberfest’s origin, this year Berghoff is bringing it back to how it all began…with a contest where one lucky couple will be crowned the Prince & Princess of our Oktoberfest. Not only do they win the title, but they also win a free rehearsal dinner at the Berghoff. Now that’s a prize if I’ve ever seen one!
After a week of submissions, we’ve narrowed it down to 9 couples. Each has a tale filled with Berghoff memories, German themed weddings, creative engagements, and many other inspiring stories. Drum roll please…..and the nominees are:
- Beth & Eric
- Michelle & Anne
- Mary & Jedd
- Jeremy & Lisa
- Mary & Ken
- Mike & Kara
- Marah & Andrew
- Arnell & Katie
- Michelle & Ben
It is now up to you, the public to vote and decide who should be crowned the Prince & Princess of Oktoberfest. Voting runs through September 14 and the winners will be crowned live at Oktoberfest. I can’t wait…now go rock the vote (isn’t that what they say over here?)!
