Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - FRONT PAGE - Dig­i­tal First Me­dia

WEST CH­ESTER >> The win­ners of the Veter­ans Day Wed­ding Give­away, Emily Beers and Tyler Thiel of Down­ing­town, con­tinue to plan their big day, Sun­day, Nov. 11, with the help of sev­eral area busi­nesses as part of a con­test that be­gan ear­lier this year.

Spon­sored by West Ch­ester’s Amer­i­can He­li­copter Mu­seum and Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter (AHMEC) and John Se­rock Cater­ing, the prize of a free five-hour cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion for 100 guests to be held at the mu­seum in­cludes con­tri­bu­tions from Blue Dog Print­ing & De­sign, Schaf­fer Sound, Mat­lack Florist, Ba­iada Pho­tog­ra­phy, Sagets For­mal Wear, Chadds­ford Win­ery, Choice Party Linens, Mas­ter’s Baker and Lo­cust Lane Brew­ery.

“The progress with the wed­ding is great,” said Beers. “I am happy to say that the brides­maids in my wed­ding who are ac­tive duty are all able to make it to the ac­tual day. Right now, the last minute touches are to fi­nal­ize the guest list, type up in­tro­duc­tions, time the big day and have the re­hearsal din­ner.”

Beers and Thiel met at a lo­cal gym in 2015. By 2016 their friend­ship blos­somed into more, so they moved in to­gether. Thiel started plan­ning to pro­pose mar­riage in March of this year, and in April he did.

“We took the dog for a walk near an el­e­men­tary school,” Thiel ex­plained. “I just re­mem­ber get­ting down on one knee and the rest is a blur. I planned for fam­ily and friends to be (at our house) af­ter­ward (to cel­e­brate).”

The cou­ple has con­nected with all of the con­tribut­ing ven­dors to fi­nal­ize the wed­ding. The bridal party has com­pleted their suit fit­tings and made their dress choices. Beers and Thiel have per­formed a walk-through of AHMEC with their fam­i­lies to plan the dec­o­ra­tions; they have cho­sen navy blue, ma­roon and gold for their col­ors.

“We’re very happy that we can help make this hap­pen for Emily and Tyler,” stated Sarah Sands, AHMEC’s Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor. “It’s im­por­tant to us to give back to our mil­i­tary per­son­nel who have given so much for us. We also ap­pre­ci­ate our co-spon­sor, John Se­rock Cater­ing, and all of the ven­dors who are gen­er­ously con­tribut­ing to make this ex­cit­ing, beau­ti­ful day
