Mooers couple wins Valentine's Day wedding

Radio will air Valentine's nuptials live on Star 92.9

MOOERS — Jessica Martin and Todd Dansereau love each other so much they want to scream it from the top of the highest mountain.

Well, sort of.

Star 92.9 recently announced that the Mooers couple had won the radio station's latest contest — an all-expense paid wedding to be broadcast on the "Live With Tara Show" — which means the ceremony will be transmitted from a radio tower located high atop Vermont's tallest geographic feature, Mt. Mansfield.

On Valentine's Day, the radio station in Colchester, Vt., will be transformed into a wedding chapel, where Martin and Dansereau will be wed. They went up against five other couples and were declared the winners after they received the most online votes.

The win is just one more thing that has fallen into place for the couple.

Martin said that even though they went to high school together, they didn't travel in the same circles. That didn't matter, though, because more than 10 years after graduating, the pair reconnected on Facebook.

"We just got along so well," Martin said. "He's very easy-going."

It wasn't long before Martin and Dansereau began chatting in person, and soon after that they became engaged. That was two years ago.

"He had a picture of the ring, and he sent it to me via a text message," Martin said. "And then he called and asked me to marry him."

Jennifer Foxx, program director for Star 92.9, said she knew as soon as she saw the couple's profile that they were happy they had found each other.

"I'm really happy they won," Foxx said. "For them, it wasn't about money or anything. It is clear they are just really in love."
