Professional Holiday Pictures of your Family at Brides a la mode!

On September 13, 2009, just two months after returning from Iraq, Army Sgt. Chris Monjeau and Mary Smith of South Bend, Ind., said “I do.” Little did they know that the joy of their wedding day would end when they returned home to find that their house had been burglarized, causing them to lose nearly $10,000 worth of electronics, jewelry and other valuable items.

On Tuesday, September 29, area wedding professionals will join together at Brides a la mode to hold a fundraiser for Chris and Mary called “Christmas in September.” The event, taking place from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., will feature a number of ways the local community can come together to help this couple recover some of what they lost during the robbery.

For a nominal donation of $5 per person or a maximum of $15 per family, professional photographer Matthew Whitlock of Zeta Alpha Studio will take portrait shots which can be used for holiday cards. Hair and make professionals from Nicholas J Salon and Spa , the Beehive Salon, Camellia, the Cosmetic Store and GabGlam will be on hand to ensure everyone in the family looks their best for the pictures. Everyone is encouraged to come dressed for the holidays to get in the Christmas spirit (and to make sure the pictures look right for holiday cards) – it really will look like “Christmas in September” at Brides a la mode!

In addition to the photographs, a number of raffle items will be available throughout the afternoon, including big ticket items such as three hours of DJ service from ProShow DJs, personal photo shoots from OMG and Cathy Dietz Photography and even a $500 catering gift certificate from the Landing Catering – all of which would make an incredible holiday party. A variety of other items such as gift baskets and accessories will be raffled off as well. Complimentary food, drinks and music will be provided by Brides a la mode to make sure everyone is in the holiday mood.

Won't you come and help us help the Monjeau's and celebrate "Christmas in September"?
