Weddings that Give Back- Cup of Love

A few months ago Black Sheep Bride shared a proposal unlike most witnessed on Pinterest and You Tube these days… Its was set in the middle of a homeless outreach event and the engagement ring delivered in a styrofoam cup. Why you might ask? Well because that is where this couple’s love was founded, helping others and providing warmth through coffee and hot cocoa to their ‘downtown neighbors’ (the Downtown Jacksonville homeless) via the groom’s non-profit, called Cup of Love. It was something that resonated deeply with me, because I was living in Downtown Jax at the time and quickly became friends with a lot of the homeless folks this couple served every week! So when it was time to tie, you better believe I was excited to see the wedding day photos!

What a great way to start off their marriage right, by sharing kindness and care to others.
