You probably noticed that no blogs were posted last week but I promise there’s a good reason for that – last week became unexpectedly BUSY! The outcome? We’ve successfully participated in our first bridal showcase!!
I found out about an opportunity to participate in the Weddings for Heroes Military Wedding Charity event one week before it was scheduled to take place – which is great, right? But considering this had NEVER been done before, the opportunity quickly became a race against time in an effort to pull it off.
And with a little help, we did!!
The event was held on March 28th in Red Bank, NJ at the Oyster Point Hotel. The organization, Weddings for Heroes Corp, is a NJ charitable organization, benefiting our Military by providing dream weddings to Combat wounded military personnel, Combat Veterans and active duty military facing hardships or otherwise underprivileged at no cost to them.
Weddings For Heroes also offers resources and programs to Military couples coping with the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder due to military service/ deployments.
Servicemen from all branches of the military, and their brides, attended the event learning more about the vendors and in hopes of being the couple lucky enough to win the wedding of their dreams.
And several of NJ’s fabulous wedding businesses were also participating – including some of my favorites like SZDesigns, Calligraphy by Allison, Hallak Bridal, and Cardbox Diva.
Thank you again to Weddings For Heroes for the opportunity to participate in their first bridal showcase. Having grown up as a military brat to a father in the Army, their cause is one that is close to my heart and I’m excited about the opportunity to showcase in future showcases and donate our services to helping make bridal dreams come true for our troops. Here are some pictures from the evening…
