Meet Kristin & Jeff Our Lucky Winners

What better way to start the week than with the uplifting story from our very excited Costa Rican Vacation Giveaway winners. You remember our recent HUGE giveaway prize right? Well, this is one giveaway that Kristin Shaw Robinson and her boyfriend Jeff, will not soon forget!

We want to share with you part of an email we recently received from Kristin.


I was encouraged to enter the Four Winds Weddings vacation giveaway by my coworker, Nancy, who has been telling me for years that I would love Costa Rica and should visit. As much as I've been dying to plan a trip there, it just didn't seem to be in the cards. Nancy mentioned the contest to me when it was first announced, and in late March I entered while sitting in a hotel room in Savannah, GA with my mom and two of my sisters. I remember them joking around about what would happen if I actually won as I filled out the entry form, and then didn't think anything else about it.


Flash forward to nearly a month later. I was in Chicago for Easter weekend with my boyfriend, Jeff. After a day of sightseeing around the city, we made our way to a concert. We were having such a great time, and I was oblivious to everything...until my phone rang... it was Nancy calling.  I couldn't answer because the music was so loud.  She texted me "You won the spa retreat in Costa Rica" and then a second text "look on facebook". I stared at my phone in utter shock for a solid minute or two. I turned around and looked at Jeff, and leaned in and said over the music "I have something REALLY awesome to tell you after the show". I really wanted to tell him right then, and had this huge, goofy grin plastered on my face for the rest of the concert.


He was just as shocked as I was once I told him what I'd won. Our shock became excitement the next morning as I began to pull up photos of Costa Rica on my phone. Neither of us have been to Costa Rica before. Thanks to everyone at Four Winds Weddings and at Los Altos de Eros for making this possible!!!
