A local couple is in the running for a Facebook contest organized by the national bridal store chain David’s Bridal.

Samantha Sissman and Clyde Wentling, who first met as students at Arlington’s H-B Woodlawn Secondary Program, are getting married this summer. They’re hoping to win the $2,500 “Share Your Love” contest to help offset the expense of flying the mother of the groom-to-be in from her home in West Africa.

Sissman and Wentling both grew up in Arlington. Though they attended high school together, they only started dating in 2008 after meeting again years later through friends. Sissman, whose family still lives in South Arlington, has worked as an aide in the Arlington County Board office for nearly four years.

To vote for Samantha and Clyde, go to their contest entry page and click on the red ‘vote’ button. Additional information about the contest can be found here.

    No Gays in the Top 25???

    That’s racist.

    • Roycroft

      Being gay has nothing to do with race.

      • Deducer

        Based on his post, the only thing one can assume is that the poster above you is attracted to gay black men. I fully support his freedom to be open with his sexuality.

  • ArlRes

    Gay or straight, y’all should vote for these two. Would be nice to see an Arlington couple win the contest.

      I voted for the Russian girl.

    • thecharlesriver

      Are they more worthy than a couple from somewhere else?

    I’ll chip in for a razor so he can get a shave!

    Why are only the women’s names on there (except one)

  • Cool

    They are cute. I hope they win it! After all she has to deal with Zimmie, so she must be a gem.
