We had the privilege to partake in something amazing in July 2016! Black Sheep Bride in Tampa planned their very first Wedding World Changer Free Wedding to a deserving couple, Astrid and Gary, and we were able to bless the beautiful bride with her wedding gown for the big day! The concept behind Wedding World Changer is simple but meaningful, which is why we loved being a part of it and provide the bride with her wedding dress.

Couples who are actively involved in their community were nominated on Black Sheep Bride’s website and this sweet couple stole the hearts of everyone! Gary is a firefighter in Palm Harbor and Astrid is working towards her degree in Pediatric Occupational Therapy. Both of them have a huge heart and desire to serve their community. When Astrid came to our bridal shop to find her wedding dress, we fell in love with her and her family immediately. She is not only beautiful but has such a wonderful spirit and giving heart. We are so happy that we found her a beautiful lace bridal gown that fit her just perfectly! She looked stunning in her wedding dress and we are so blessed to have been a part of her special day.
