A formalwear company is helping heroes feel beautiful on one of the most special days of their lives.
Formal dress company Camille La Vie is donating wedding gowns to active duty military, veterans and first responders. And for the first time, they are also donating dresses to COVID-19 front-line workers.
Ten brides received the full fitting experience at the Jersey Garden Mall on Wednesday as part of Operation Wedding Gown. The initiative aims to give back to women like Jennifer Vaughn, who serves in the Massachusetts Air National Guard.
“It’s incredible to be recognized. I don’t think first responders or anyone who joins the military does it for the recognition. But we certainly appreciate all the thanks that we do get,” Vaughn says.
News 12 New Jersey is happy to report that Vaughn found her dream dress. Her fiancé also serves in the military.
