We are excited to announce the couple who will receive a free wedding for a frontline worker of COVID-19. Even since we have announced the free wedding, more vendors have offered their services to make the wedding day even better for the lucky couple This free wedding now includes all-day photography from Moede Photography, the venue from Northern Stacks Events, a free keg of Northstar Cream Ale from Forgotten Star Brewing, a day of coordination package from Naomi Anderson Events, first dance choreography and lessons from Duets Wedding Dance, and $300 worth of french pastries from Bberi Desserts.

Congratulations to Melissa and Brian!  

Melissa works for M Health's first episode psychosis team, supporting youth and adults who have received a diagnosis of schizophrenia spectrum disorder. She is also a student at Augsburg University as a Masters of Social Work Candidate.

Her fiance, Brian, is a Lieutenant with the Columbia Heights Fire Department, a paramedic, and a safety specialist for Amazon.

They both live in Fridley and were originally supposed to get married on July 25th of this year, but were forced to reschedule.

There were so many amazing stories that were submitted, and we wish we could have helped everyone. Thank you to all of the frontline workers fighting against the pandemic. Stay tuned for pictures of the wedding to be posted on Instagram.
