2016 Wedding World Changer Couple: Astrid and Gary, Tampa, FL

Graingertainment has the privilege and honor to be a part of the first World Changer Couple put on by Black Sheep Bride.

Black Sheep Bride has had couples nominate themselves and shared their stories, vendors from all over the world have reached out, interested in participating in their areas! Due to proximity, Tampa, FL is Black Sheep Bride's first market and we will be celebrating Astrid and Gary’s wedding day on Tuesday, 7/5/16, thanks to the love, support, hard work, and time and financial investments of amazing local vendors passionate about giving back!

Here is the couple's story: Gary is a firefighter in Palm Harbor with a tender heart for serving others and his community, and Astrid is currently working towards her degree in Pediatric Occupational Therapy, while also volunteering her time on Sundays with her local children’s ministry, at their church. They were planning for a late fall wedding, but Astrid’s mother’s recent battle with cancer had them seeking ways to plan their wedding sooner. Out of the applications available the Tampa Vendor Team voted and their story touched our hearts most. So excited to share this special day with a couple that we have all grown to love so closely!
