We are Niketa Calame and Donovan Harris! We recently got engaged on Nov. 8, 2012. We are starting a new life together which is exciting and starting to plan for our wedding is more than exciting. We are starting at a 0 budget and unfortunatly unlike most brides whose mom and dad put up the majority of the budget and the bride gets started right away on locking in venues and photographers etc... , My mother had to retire early on disability and my father is no where to be found. The average cost for a California wedding is $26,000 on the low end. I have found my dream wedding place and $7,000.00 Locks in the venue and our preferred date. After that I will continue to save for the rest of the cost of the wedding and venue but that amount right there would be a blessing to have as soon as possible to lock in the venue. I was referred to this site by another couple who was successful at raising funds for their wedding and I jumped on the opportunity. Hopefully you can help our little dream come true. Thank you in advance!
