A Fort McMurray bride whose gown was destroyed in the wildfire still managed to have her pefect wedding after Torontonians stepped up with new dresses.
On Saturday I have a wedding. My couple are from Fort McMurray and yesterday they were evacuated from their home. I asked Elise what I could do to help her on my end here and she asked me if I could possibly help to find her a new dress as hers was lost in the fire. I posted on Facebook and within an hour hundreds upon hundreds of strangers had reached out, offering to give her their dress to wear. Designers, bridal stores and fellow photographers all did what they could to help her find a new gown. Elise arrived in Toronto at 3pm, I picked her up at 5:30pm and we went to @leaannbelterbridal where the ever so generous and gracious, Ginny, lent Elise not one but two dresses. One for the ceremony and one to change into for the reception. Elise was so overcome with emotions by everything that has happened and I can safely say that the kindness shown by strangers has touched her more than you will ever know. Thank you SO much for all of your help! You really don't know how much it means to her and her family. ❤️❤️❤️ #BeKindToOneAnother @vsco
Thanks to the generosity of strangers Elise Boissonnault got a chance to wear several dresses over the course of her special day.
It was actually Neary who got the ball rolling when she put the call out via social media about the search for a new dress.
Congratulations Elise and Brandon!
