My Favorite Non Profit Event – Wedding For Warriors

2009 – 2012 I have been a lead coordinator for Weddings for Warriors an awesome event that gives wedding ceremonies to military couples


In 2009 The Savannah Wedding Tourism Council launched the project entitled Weddings for Warriors.  The event provided free wedding ceremonies and vow renewals to active US Military personnel.  This season’s the event will take place on January 18, 2012.  Morris Multimedia, Inc. has generously agreed to host the event at the Morris Center at Trustees Garden, 10 East Broad Street, Savannah, GA.

Members of the Savannah Wedding Tourism Council joined with other businesses in the wedding, hospitality and tourism industries in the Savannah area to create individual ceremonies for each couple.  The SWTC is composed of members from the wedding, tourism and hospitality industries in the Savannah Area.  Warriors are invited from across America to participate in the event.  In the past, volunteers from across the Southeast, from northern Virginia to Florida provided goods and services at no cost to the SWTC or to the couples.

“The project was conceived as a way of saying a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to active duty military personnel in Savannah and the Low Country,” said Becky Byous, Executive Director for the Project.

“We wanted to offer as many free wedding ceremonies for active duty military personnel as possible,” Byous said.  The totals for this year’s event has not been set, but in the past as many as forty couples were selected to represent their branches of the military.  With the success of the event the group has decided to make W4W an annual affair.
