As many of you know, each year our company designs a wedding for a deserving couple. We look for a couple that has experienced financial hardship, yet still gives back to their community. We feel as though we've been so very fortunate in life and in business that this is simply our way of giving back.
With the unstable economy, there are quite a few families struggling with finances. Most are just lucky to still have a job. Giving back to a few very lucky couples every year makes us feel so good. It also is a wonderful way to be even more creative and connect with some pretty talented wedding professionals in the industry. For 2011, we had chosen two teams of professionals to create two deserving couple weddings. But, while at La Cupola one evening for dinner....we told Frank what we did each year and he said "we should host one here, it would be beautiful!".. and so the plan began. So we set out to find one more deserving couple (someone who really could use a helping hand and honestly could not afford any sort of a wedding) and one more team of professionals.
What I love most about this couple, is that they are real and genuine. Life sometimes hands us unexpected hardships and hurdles. It makes us stronger individuals and grateful for what we do have in our lives. Life isn't perfect, but if you can stick together and come stronger as a couple even with tough finances... you're golden!
the couple: Christina and Dustin
