Loved ones- As some of you already are aware our beloved Ethan was let go from his job at the Catholic Charities this week. They have gone into panic mode. There is a lot to still be done money wise for the wedding. We have spent countless hours with Brenna hand making and crafting so many amazing details for their wedding. We have talked her down from insanity and other stressful moments. It's coming down to the wire, they were intending to pay their venue off closer to the wedding but with Ethan out of a job they are now considering postponing/canceling the whole shebang. It would break their hearts to do it but it's a good possibility. They have both done so much for everyone and are both such kind and compassionate people, all the planning they've done and the love they have for all of their family/friends is incredible. Pay what you can, if you can. They don't know about this, we wanted to surprise them with a little help. You can't afford to give anything? That's fine too. Give them your support and love (as I'm sure you have always done). They need it now more than ever before. Were you planning to buy them a gift for their wedding? Consider this instead. They've lived together for so long, and I know Brenna and Ethan would have rather asked for cash in lieu of gifts but felt a little tacky doing so. We love these two and they have waited long enough to get married. Lets do what we can to make it happen. ❤

Hi everyone! Than you SO SO SO SO much for all the donations and shares. Lets make one final push to see if we can't get them a few more dollars.
Ethan did file for unemployment compensation but the Catholic Charities has decided to fight it, so he will be in limbo until a meeting with an unemployment referee is completed and a decision is reached.
Help alleviate some stress from these two lovebirds and donate what you can!

Thanks,
Devin

Holy, shnikes. I am without words. Me. Needlessly verbose and convoluted Brenna. Without words. So I will leave it in the words of someone who could say it better - Thornton Wilder. "We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” Well, I must very much be alive right now because I am more than conscious of my treasures and they are all of you. There are so many more deserving funds/causes out there beside this one. Many of you have your own stresses and worries in life. Yet, you graciously opened your hearts and donated to a little goofy old wedding. What can I say? Love shines bright. My heart really feels nearly full to bursting. This has been an outpouring of love I never ever expected let alone anticipated. From the bottom of Ethan, Declan, Lucy, and I's hearts - Thank You.
