Couple hopes to share the "Kiss of the Year"

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

An MUSC pharmacy student and her husband, an Air Force Captain, are finalists for the Nivea Kiss of the Year contest. The winning couple gets to spend New Year's Eve on stage at the party of the year, in New York's Times Square.

For Seth and Allie Butler, winning the contest would mean a rare holiday moment they could share together. Their story is the big reason the couple was selected as a finalist. They met in college, dated for a short while, and later married. But they've spent more of their life apart than together.

Allie says "He (Seth) graduated and commissioned into the Air Force, left for training after five months of dating, and we've been long distance pretty much ever since."

Allie was in the Air Force herself, but finished her duties last year and moved to Charleston while Seth was stationed here. "That was the first time we actually lived in the same house," Seth says. It's the first time, since they married in July 2008, they were together. But their time together would be short-lived as Seth has spent time on deployment and was then transferred to Mississippi. Allie estimates, by the time she finishes her work at MUSC, the couple will have been married for 6 years and spent only 5 months together.

Seth and Allie say in their four years of marriage, they've missed out on birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays together. They hope this contest would give them the chance to share a kiss together at the biggest party of the year.

You can read more about Seth and Allie's story and vote for them to win Nivea's Kiss of the Year at the contest Facebook page. Voting will wrap up Sunday.
