WESTBURY, LONG ISLAND (PIX11)–  A couple of veterans tied the knot Saturday in style on Long Island

Ryan Donnelly and Tina Mcgrory are the winners of Nassau County’s “free wedding for a veteran contest.”

Marine Sergeant Donnelly was wounded in Afghanistan and is the recipient of a purple heart.

Mcgrory is an army veteran.

The ceremony took place at the Viana Hotel and Spa in Westbury.

The contest is sponsored by two-dozen small business owners, most of them members of the local chamber of commerce.
