Although the wedding is in October, groom-to-be Justin Merritt unwrapped a special prize from the Georgia Lottery.

Merritt collected $400,000 dollars from the Georgia Lottery this weekend after he won the money from their, "20X the Money" instant win game.

Merritt claimed his prize money Monday and described the win as "amazing," and jokingly stated, "this should get my fiancà and I off to a good start."

An X-ray technician, the lucky winner feels great about the six figure victory.
