Proof that human kindness and generosity has not gone out of style, a wedding planner worked for weeks with volunteers and vendors in April to create the “Wedding of a Lifetime” for cancer patient, Jennifer Batugo and her fiance Brian Gargano. They needed a last minute date change for their planned August wedding because the bride may not live that long.
After learning of her terminal diagnosis in March, Gargano placed a call to L.A. wedding officiant Elysia Skye. Though he didn’t know it at the time, Skye also happened to be a breast cancer survivor who runs a non-profit breast-cancer support organization.
Donations poured in for the food and drink, photography, videography, makeup, accessories, balloons, hotel accommodations, flowers, flights, music, and wedding cake — even a white 1959 Rolls Royce.
On Sunday April 21 they got married in a picturesque Japanese garden on a Los Angeles hilltop having been cheered on by hundreds of strangers donating cash and prayers for their big day.
