Woman Donates Wedding Venue To Couple After Calling Off Engagement

“It was overwhelming … I had so many emotions that day.”

Bride-to-be Kolbie Sanders was scheduled to marry on October 20, at the Bellevue Wedding and Event Venue in Tyler, Texas. But just one week before her impending nuptials, she broke off her engagement and took to Facebook to share a now-viral announcement.

Kolbie took to the popular social media platform and told her friends that she wanted to donate her venue, which was valued at $3,500. But there was one catch: she only had 24 hours to find the couple — and they would have to agree to the same wedding date of Oct. 20.

She wrote:

“I have partnered with the venue, and they are on board with this decision, and we are both excited to see if we can help a couple in need of making their wedding that much more beautiful with a free venue. I figured the best way for this to work is for everyone to SHARE this post so that it reaches a higher audience.”

Kolbie’s Facebook post has drawn hundreds of comments from people not only nominating couples but also praising her for her generosity.

She asked couples on social media to send her a message with their backstories. Kolbie then appeared in a Facebook Live video, vigorously shaking a bowl filled with strangers’ names and then choosing one at random.

She pulled one out, held up the card reading, “Halie Hipsher.”

Hipsher’s grandfather, Edwin Truett Hipsher, was battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. With his condition, the bride-to-be had no idea if he would make it to her wedding, what was scheduled next fall, and walk her down the aisle.

“I was in shock,” Halie shared. “As soon as my sister called me I was like, ‘All right, this is real, this is my name.’”

Instead of being the bride that day, Kolbie ended up going to the wedding as a guest.

She said:

“It was overwhelming … I had so many emotions that day.”
