Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Weddings usually have something old, new, borrowed and blue. But how about a wedding with a little garnet and black?

Most people don't imagine their weddings being planned inside a classroom. But a group of USC hospitality students will be making dreams come true at their desks.

USC's 15th semester love story is open for submissions, but Sunday, February 10th is the deadline to enter.

The students will choose a deserving couple to receive an all expenses paid wedding. The couple has to have some type of tie with USC and submit a 500 word essay or 3 minute video. Even though the students do all the planning, she says the community makes it possible.

The students are responsible for every aspect of the wedding. And the couple isn't involved in any of the planning. Couples must sign a contract handing over control of every aspect of the wedding to the students.

Submissions must be sent by 2/10/2013, and a winning couple will be announced Wednesday, February 13th.
