Dede Daniel, is a mother of two, and planning a wedding to her fiance, Stephen Long, but she also has stage 2 breast cancer.
Thanks to the kindness of strangers, she recently did an engagement photo shoot fit for royalty.
Daniel was diagnosed in November, and began chemotherapy in January.
Just hours after she completed her first treatment, Long proposed.
In search of a beautiful, affordable venue in the Atlanta area, Daniel wrote a letter to a host of The Bert Show, her favorite radio show, to explain her situation and ask for a venue recommendation.
The host read her letter on air, and before Daniel knew it, a planner, a photographer, a florist, and more all donated their services to help her dream wedding become a reality.
As part of the package photographer Loyall Hart donated, he surprised Daniel and Long with an unforgettable photo shoot at the Swan House at Atlanta History Center on March 6.
Wedding Angels Boutique donated Daniel’s stunning black beaded gown, which she wore during the eight-hour shoot.
Local florist SomeTheme to Talk About also donated her unbelievable bouquet of roses, ranunculuses, and eucalyptus.
Daniel has four chemotherapy treatments left, and a double mastectomy planned for July 11. If doctors find no signs of cancer spread after that, she will go into remission — just in time for her Sept. 10 wedding.
