Two Breast Cancer Survivors Get Dream Wedding Dresses!
This past Sunday, June 2, 2019, was National Cancer Survivors Day. That is powerful and means a great deal to a lot of people, including our brand. While we miss those who lost their battle, we’re so grateful for the ones that are still fighting and are beating this evil disease.
Back in October of 2018, we had the pleasure of meeting two beautiful, warm brides-to-be who happen to also be breast cancer survivors and some of the strongest women we know. We honored breast cancer awareness month with them as part of the Young Survivor Coalition Gala in NYC.
In February of this year, we surprised these two brides, Katie and Christina, with a private shopping experience at Gabriella New York Bridal Salon where each bride got to work directly with designer Kelly Faetanini to shop for her dream wedding dress—free of charge. This is why we do what we do!
While we can’t share their wedding dress photos just yet, we can’t wait for these gorgeous souls to marry their soul mates wearing custom Kelly Faetanini gowns!
Stay tuned for more updates! In the meantime, you can read about Katie’s experience with breast cancer in her blog post feature called, “Chemo Cocktails & Wedding Bells” and Christina’s, “Navigating the Mountain In Front of Me.”
