What is Weddings for Warriors?
Since 2009, Weddings for Warriors has provided free wedding ceremonies and vow renewals to active US Military personnel. Weddings For Warriors, Inc. (W4W) joined with other businesses in the wedding, hospitality and tourism industries in the Savannah, Georgia area to create individual ceremonies for each couple. Volunteers from Wisconsin to Florida provided goods and services at no cost to the couples.
“The project was conceived as a way of saying a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to active duty military personnel and is now offered across the United States" said Becky Byous, Executive Director for the Project. “Because we are in a time of war, and because these brave individuals are willing to give their all for the protection of our nation and our way of life, we wanted to give something back even if it is in this small way.”
Requirements for couples include that at least one, the bride or the groom, be active duty in the U.S. Military; Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard or National Guard.
Designer wedding gowns, floral bouquets, photography, officiant and a reception with all the trimmings are all provided at no charge to the active duty military couples.
The Weddings For Warriors Project provides individual wedding ceremonies to active duty military, but the reception is one grand party.
Las Brisas Farm wishes to thank the hundreds of community supporters and volunteers that made all this possible for three outstanding couples and their families on November 10, 2013.
