A couple hit hard by wildfires in California gets a free wedding of their dreams


Jessica Crabtree and Elijah Gonzales have been best friends for over a decade and they were looking forward to celebrating their wedding in April.

But according to our local affiliate KBAK those plans were canceled when the home they just bought in Oildale, California was burned to the ground in the fire earlier this week.

They lost everything in the fire. Left with no other option, they were forced to cancel the wedding because there was no way they could afford to pay for it anymore.

Until now.

"This is the Lord working, as far as I'm concerned, and it's an amazing thing," said Randy Crabtree, Jessica's dad.

The couple was eating ice cream with their friends when a group of vendors lined up and told them they would be putting on their wedding for free.

Tears streamed down their faces as they got their dream wedding back.

"So much goodness and kindness in this world that people are showing us, and there's no reason to feel down," said Jessica.

The couple is now planning for their spring wedding, thanks to the very best of Bakersfield.
