With Colorado still reeling after immense floods, brides- and grooms-to-be have suddenly found themselves in a situation where their venue might well be underwater, or their florist evacuated. Which is why Colorado wedding photographer Sarah Roshan turned to Facebook, creating a group called Save My Colorado Wedding, helping out those left in a lurch from the floods.
Reaching out to other wedding professionals and venues, Roshan has been setting up alternative locations, and connecting people who have had their celebration disrupted to those who can help. As reported by CBS News, the group now has a complete list of availability at 200 local venues for the next eight weeks, letting those couples who would have been left stranded with somewhere to hold their nuptial celebrations. With wedding planners, florists, photographers and more all chipping in, these special days have been saved for a great many couples.
Talking to CBS News, she said "Everything seemed so chaotic, I just needed to organize it all. It's been a little crazy and sleep has not been in the cards for awhile. But what's important is that I'm helping people."
According to the Facebook group, things are starting to slow down a bit for the project as the area starts to recover. But for anyone still faced with a flood disrupted wedding, they're more than happy to lend a hand.
