US gay couple in the running to win $80k dream wedding

A gay US couple are in the running to win an $80,000 dream wedding.

Three couples, two heterosexual and one gay, are competing to win their dream wedding with Arena Stage, an American theater company.

The ‘Win a Wedding’ competition invited applicants to share their love story with the judges, who managed to narrow the entries down to a final three.

Shawn Byers and Mike O’Sullivan, who met because they were both looking for a running partner, are hoping to win the prize for their bid day.

‘I didn’t think I would ever be able to be married,’ they said.

‘Seeing the world change and being a part of that in our generation and our time, it’s just opened up a world I really didn’t think I would ever get.

‘We’re finally in a place where the world is changing.’

The competition invites the public to share their opinion on who should win by tweeting the hashtag #shawnlovesmike.

The other final two couples are Quinton Huguley and Kaisha Sutton and Dan Deiter and Megan Thrift.

The competition launched on 24 September and the winners will be announced at the end of the month.
