It’s been incredibly difficult for so many people in Alberta this week & our hearts go out to everyone affected by the wildfires.  But tonight brought us this story of hope!


A Fort McMurray couple, who were supposed to get married in Fort Mac this weekend & lost it all, were given a second chance by some amazing folks right here in our city!  After evacuating, the couple had intended to have a quiet wedding in a friend’s living room tonight – but people rallied over Facebook to make their night as special as possible.  Random good Samaritans donated cakes, rings, a wedding dress & more!


I spoke with Wanda, who spearheaded the initiative to help the couple.


Here’s how it all happened:
