Pretty epic, right?

The Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort boasts all-out luxury, with seven swimming pools, a FlowRider (to polish your surfing skills!), a meditation garden, six swim-up bars (our fave!), incredible restaurants, a 27 hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and a fabulous spa – all of which sound pretty sweet to us!

The Finalists

Both couples up for the First Couple of 2016 will win an unforgettable wedding experience, with an incredible NYC stay, everything they need to look, and feel, great on their big day – plus luxury honeymoons.

But only one couple will get the bragging rights as the very first ones to marry in 2016!

So who do you think it should be?

Alexander & Michael

Music-lovers from Atlanta, Alexander and Michael have been together through thick and thin over the last ten years.

After a surprise proposal at Atlanta Pride, this pair are used to celebrating their love in pretty epic ways, and now that marriage is legal for everyone in the US, they’re ready to make it official.

And how better to top a Pride proposal, than with a New Year’s Eve wedding, live on stage in Times Square!

The Finalists: Alexander & Michael and Alfredo & Monica

Alfredo & Monica

Miami twosome, Alfredo and Monica, crossed paths with a spark, at a party many years ago.

But because they were both in relationships at the time, it took a few years before they reconnected as singles – and they’ve been inseparable ever since.

Monica, who coaches CenterStage cheer team, is no stranger to having a spotlight cast on her by Alfredo. He proposed with an awesome group choreography from her girls – how sweet is that?

Sounds like the perfect proposal for a couple who want to tie the knot, center stage after the ball drops in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.
