How did she do it?

Vagner: It’s a good memory.

Name two things you agree on.
Katie: Cooking. We fight over who gets to cook dinner. Vagner: I’ve gained 50 pounds since I met her! Our tastes our very similar and the way we see things.
Katie: And we both believe in aliens!

Name two you disagree on.

What’s the one thing your wedding absolutely must have?

Katie: Scotch, beer and Jäger.

If you could have any band/musician/dj or pop star in the world (dead or alive) who would be?
Vagner: B.B. King
Katie: Black Eyed Peas.Vagner: Black Eyed Peas would fit the wedding better, B.B. can play at my barbeque.

Why do you deserve a free wedding?
Vagner: To tell you the truth, it’s all financial.
Katie: We both want to get married and we want to have a celebration for our friends. We pretty much are married. We just want the celebration to make it official.

If you don’t win the free wedding, when will you tie the knot?
Vagner: September 2012
Katie: We’ve been talking about it for a while, and now that we signed up for Blockparty Wedding, we are going to make sure it’s official by 2012. Even if we have to go down to the courthouse.

Have you ever won anything else exciting before?
Katie: Never been a lucky winner.
