Richland Couple Beats Adversity and gets Married

KENNEWICK,Wa.,--In early June, fire destroyed Mike and Chrissy's home. They lost everything except the desire to get married. Chrissy, the bride to be, made a few phone calls, wanting to have a small wedding ceremony. But they deserved better.

"I didn't think it was quite good enough and so I just called my friends in the wedding industry and I just had a few people that managed to, to be able to help," says Bobbi-Jo Floyd.

The wedding was held at the home of Rob Di Piazza, a photographer who donated his time and backyard for the ceremony.

"It's just special circumstances," said Di Piazza. It's from the heart and it feels so much better."

Local businesses such as Mr. Tux and Albertsons donated tuxedos and a wedding cake respectively. Mike and Chrissy are very grateful.

"It's nice everybody got together and put this on for us, pretty much everything was donated," says Mike Cram. My parent's kicked in alot."

And its Mike's parent's who view Chrissy more as a daughter, saying they are blessed. Same goes for the bride and groom, understanding that many people played a role on a day they'll never forget.

"I'd like to thank everybody that helped out, it was great," says Cram. Everybody went above and beyond what they had to do."
