Know a couple that got engaged recently - one (or both) of which is either a current service member or veteran? Allow Brecknock Hall at Peconic Landing to host their dream wedding - at no cost.

Brecknock Hall at Peconic Landing in Greenport is once again looking for lucky lovebirds to celebrate during its annual Veterans Day Wedding Giveback. Along with tremendous support from the community, who donate their time, expertise and services, Brecknock Hall will provide a completely complimentary wedding that can accommodate up to 82 guests. The ceremony will be held on Sunday, November 10, 2019 in celebration of Veterans Day.

The contest launched in 2011 as a way for Peconic Landing and the community to thank and give back to Long Island's military personnel. Each year approximately $60,000 worth of services and in-kind donations are gifted to ensure the affair is fairytale worthy.

"We want to thank all of our business partners who help make this giveback possible," Robert J. Syron, President and CEO of Peconic Landing, expressed. "It is an incredible community project, and many of them donate their services year after year."

Last year's winning couple was U.S. Air Force Technical Sergeant (TSgt) Trenton Todd Zanow, of Batavia, NY and U.S. Air Force Airfield Management Operations Supervisor Jennifer Lynn (Lenzi) Zanow, of Ridge, NY. The couple was told that they had been selected during a surprise reveal in May, which can be seen here: www.youtube.com.

"Announcing the winners of this giveback is a highlight event for our veteran members and for the entire community," Syron said.

The Zanows met while serving at the 106th Rescue Wing at Francis S. Gabreski Air National Guard Base in Westhampton Beach, NY. They now serve full time at the 103rd Airlift Wing, a unit of the Connecticut Air National Guard.

"Every year we are more and more impressed with the applications we receive from individuals serving our country near and far," Syron added.

A panel of Peconic Landing members with military ties will select this year's winning couple. The judges will take into consideration the number of years served, special military honors and each individual couple's love story.

Currently, sponsors of the 2019 Veterans Day Wedding Giveback include: A Flippin' Good Time, Beautiful by Katy & Dina, Leanne's Specialty Cakes, Christopher Michael Catering, East End Events Catering, Fire Monkey Hair Design, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, Greenporter Hotel, Ivy League Flowers & Gifts, Jillybean Custom Designs, Kim Jon Designs, Ken Hild Photography, Lieb Cellars, Macari Vineyards, Make Some Noise DJ's, Massage Me, by Sara Leonard LMT, Moments In Time Floral Design, Moriches Main Street Flowers, North Fork Bridal Shoppe, Southold Fish Market, Special Effects Salon, The North Fork Box, and Times/Review Media Group.
