Las Brisas Farm In Fayetteville To Host Free Weddings For Warriors - Volunteers Needed

Las Brisas Farm, a Fayetteville, TX, wedding and events venue, will be hosting Weddings 4 Warriors on November 10, 2013, as a special thank you to active military who serve and protect us. The mission of this grassroots project is to provide military couples a wedding or vow renewal, keeping in mind the emotional, spiritual and financial strain military families endure.

Texas Weddings for Warriors is part of a national movement that started in 2009 in Savannah, Georgia. “I am very honored to give a little back to those who give us so much. The service and sacrifice of those who serve, including their families, is truly extraordinary. I am a grateful citizen and hope to make this an annual event,” says Kathy Aydelotte, who owns Las Brisas Farm with her husband Eldon.

The citizens of Texas-and particularly in small-town Fayetteville where many veterans, young and old, have chosen to settle-would like to express gratitude and appreciation to families who have been willing to sacrifice such a great deal. Las Brisas Farm will provide an event, surrounded by family and friends, something that is often uncommon when couples are forced to marry suddenly prior to deployment to a location far from home.

Three weddings will be performed separately and privately, followed by the couples joining together for one reception, that will include the typical wedding essentials, such as dinner, wedding cake, toasts, first dances, and music by a DJ. Las Brisas Farm will not be accepting monetary donations but rather will be providing these no-charge weddings to the military couples with in-kind donations and volunteer effort. Additional information can be found on the “Volunteers & Sponsors” page by clicking the Weddings for Warriors icon on the Las Brisas Farm homepage, www.LasBrisasFarm.com. The basic requirement for those applying is that at least the bride or groom must still be active duty in the United States military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard and Reserve).
