Brides for a Cause Celebrates One Year with a Weekend Anniversary Event
Business owner Erin Scharf opens her doors for a special weekend event by offering 20% off already discounted dresses. Brides-to-be, moms and their friends make their way to NE Alberta and 20th Avenue to find the dress of their dreams. I had a fantastic time dancing around the action and capturing the connections between the dress and the future bride.
I was given the opportunity to photograph an on tour special event hosted by Bride for a Cause. An organization that operates a circular wedding dress system where you can donate your wedding dress or purchase a once worn wedding at a fraction of the price. Half of the purchase supports the continuing efforts of Brides for a Cause to travel the dresses and the other half is sent to charity to help couples facing terminal illnesses create the wedding of their dreams.
