Help us turn their tragedy into a treasure!
We were invited to a beautiful wedding this Friday, June 10th 2016. It was going to be one of the happiest days for two amazing young people. Months of planning, careful budgeting, and saving to create a lifetime memory. Unfortunately 6/10/16 will no longer be their dreamy wedding date.  On Monday, just 4 days before their wedding, the groom-to-be  had a horrific accident while working.  His legs were badly crushed and he was immediately rushed to the ER.  
The doctors were not sure of the extent of damage to his legs.  After multiple emergency surgeries that night and the power of of prayer, his legs were safe & set in casts.  Alex is now on a long and painful road to recovery. The bride-to-be has never lost hope and stayed strong with the loving support of friends, family and total strangers.
As we all know, short notice cancellations with weddings are typically a  major loss. 

Below is a post from Brittain's FB page to share with you.

"People always say bad won't come their way and ruin an important day. Well yesterday my world crashed. Who would think, days before your wedding your fiancé gets into a bad accident at work. Doctor said he's lucky he still has his legs. He'll be able to walk again but not for months. Emergency surgery and days at the hospital. I won't leave his side. I can't. This was gods true test. I'm here through the worst and looking forward to the best. Money can't replace his life, so what ever happens with the wedding... I'm ok with because I'd rather reschedule, than cancel. My fiancé is alive, and last night, I wasn't sure of that. I'm so over joyed by the amount of love and support this man has from family and friends. Even strangers have reached out. We thank each and every one of you."

Let's help them unite in marriage and give these kids a great wedding gift. They deserve a beautiful day.

Even though we've reach our initial goal, we've decided to keep the campaign open and running. The coming months are going to be financially difficult for this couple now, living on a single income. We are grateful for the many wonderful people who've helped and continue to help these kids. Little note from Brittain: "Yesterday Alex's step dad, brother and uncle carried him out of the house since we have no wheel chair yet, put him in the back of his step dads suv and brought him outside for fresh air. Alex was so happy for the first time since Monday "
With the help of some strong men, Alex was carried outside to enjoy sun and fresh air.

My prayers for you, I only have that and cupcakes to offer I'm sorry this happened at all let alone this time frame. Bless Alex for his fighting spirit and Brittain for her courage and strength. When our men need us, wives, for being there for him like this makes you just that even without papers, should be able to lean on one another.
