Hello my friendlings,
For all of you who have a case of the winter blues, take heart, because things are about to change. Spring is on its way. And you know what this season brings? Hay fever.
I mean, people getting engaged.
I’ve always thought weddings should focus on something bigger than the invites/dress/flowers/dinner mints, and now we are finding organizations focusing on something even bigger—outside of just the bride and groom. Recently, one of LRN’s own family, Joann, celebrated her son’s wedding. His photographer, Paper Antler, donated part of their fees to a safe house called “She Dances,” which combats human trafficking in Honduras.
Oh, what’s that?
That’s the sound of another organization devoted to fighting for freedom. Love Gives Way, is a community that partners soon-to-be couples with vendors who are doing their part in the battle against sex trafficking.
“Let your one day affect her everyday” is their motto. Some info on them…
Your wedding day can be even more significant when a couple chooses to hire vendors with a broader focus. And if YOU are someone involved in the wedding industry, I would challenge you to think of a way to do your business differently.
When we can focus our marriages on becoming partnerships that have purpose, the foundation of our marriages will take on a whole new meaning. And when that partnership looks like being the hands and feet of Jesus to those who are suffering, that partnership is going to be filled with all sorts of purpose, y’all! (Just trying to keep the Atlanta theme going.)
Why not kick off that purposeful partnership on yer’ weddin’ day. (Atlanta accent overkill?)
From my heart,
Do you know of any other wedding companies or vendors doing something like this? PLEASE share their city and website, if possible.
If you don’t know of any organizations like this, what are some other ideas you have seen that would create a unique wedding that would make an impact beyond just the shindig itself?
