Justin and I are in the midst of planning our dream wedding. We are paying for everything ourselves so we planned on a late 2015 date, that way we can try to save at least $10,000 for it. Things were on track, until we got the news that Justin's father needs to go into surgery because he is getting blood cloths in his legs. These blood clots are causing him severe pain, so much that he is unable to walk some days. His health has been deteriorating for the past 5 years and each time he goes under the knife, there are major risks that may not end well.
Both of my parents have already passed, so I asked Justin's father to do the honors of standing in their place to escort me down the aisle and to be my partner for the father daughter dance. To see his eyes light up was heart-warming as he never had the chance to do any of this with his children.
We are hoping to raise enough money to move the date up as soon as possible as time is not on our side. Donations would go toward all wedding expenses, such as venue, food, airfire and accommodations. We must change our wedding location to the East Coast (we live on the West Coast), and bring the wedding to Justin's dad.
Thank you so much! For all big contributions ($50+), we can send you a piece of our wedding, whether it be a favor or a piece of our decorations. Your choice.
