Couple spends Saint Patrick's Day getting married at The Derby Museum

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Saint Patrick's Day took on special meaning for a local couple who got married Thursday at the Kentucky Derby Museum.

John Carver and Whitney Dotson were the winners of the "Lucky in Love" contest. The Derby Museum partnered with 102.3 The Max to give them their dream wedding on Saint Patrick's Day.

The couple learned that they won the contest last week.

"We got engaged in December," said John Carver. "We were kind of hemming and hawing about the wedding plans, and here we are."

"Because we didn't want to have to plan it!" laughed Whitney Dotson.

After the couple tied the knot, they also received other prizes, including free live music and a free night at the Galt House Hotel.

John and Whitney met exactly four years ago.
