Local businesses step up to make couple's wedding day extra special

A couple thought they weren't going to get the wedding of their dreams – until some local businesses stepped in to help.

Ann Anderson and Robert Morgan recently moved to Rochester from Washington state, so Anderson could be treated at the Mayo Clinic for her autoimmune disease, Maley Photography wrote on Facebook.

This put their plans for a destination wedding on hold, but they didn't want to wait to get married. So they decided to have a small wedding at their hotel.

That's when they contacted Anne Maley of Maley Photography to take pictures, ABC 6 reports. But she wanted to do more than that – Maley vowed to make their wedding as special as possible, the Facebook post notes.

"I just thought you know what, let's make this just a beautiful day for them. They've already had a very very trying relationship with things that have gone with Ann. So I thought, you know, why not," Maley told ABC 6.

Several local businesses donated services for the couple's big day, Maley wrote on Facebook. A family even opened up their home for Sunday's ceremony.
