Devastating Wildfire Destroyed Her Dream Wedding Dress, So These Strangers Come Together to Give Her Not One, But Two More

After a devastating fire, a bride is left without her beloved wedding dress. Strangers come together to offer her the surprise of her life.

The bride received a tremendous amount of support after a devastating fire took her dream wedding dress

Elise Boissonneault had spent an entire year searching for her perfect wedding dress. After scouring every shop in the city, the bride-to-be finally found the perfect gown. Sadly, that triumphant moment was short lived. A raging wildfire in her home town of Fort McMurray forced Elise to evacuate her home, leaving all possessions behind, including her dream wedding gown.

Her wedding was scheduled to be performed the following weekend and Elise had no time to select a new dress. Enlisting the help of her wedding photographer, Alex, the bride sent out requests across social media to borrow a replacement gown. She never expected the incredible response she would get.

Soon, Elise had an army of designers, wedding photographers, artists, and wedding planners scouring the web for a last minute option. After only hours, the bride received offers to wear over 100 dresses.

Finally, she received a proposal she she couldn’t turn down. LeaAnn Belter Bridal, a dress shop in her home town, offered the bride not one, but two wedding gowns: one for the ceremony and one for the reception. She was brought to tears by their simple act of kindness.

“Elise was so overcome with emotions by everything that has happened and I can safely say that the kindness shown by strangers has touched her more than you will ever know,” Alex said. “Thank you SO much for all of your help! You really don’t know how much it means to her and her family.”


The wedding went on without a hitch. The intimate ceremony was a perfect ending to the tumultuous events weeks before.
