Houston natives Shellie Schoellkopf and Robert Callaway were all set for their upcoming wedding on October 7. And then Hurricane Harvey happened. They realized almost everyone on their guest list was affected by the flooding, so they decided to change their plans to help their loved ones.
They gave the money directly to family members and friends who lost their homes in the storm. The total amount $5000
“We recognize it’s not this grand amount that some other couples spend on their wedding, but it’s still more than we’d be able to give if we hadn’t done it,” Schoellkopf says. “Our guests have been really supportive of our decision.”
