Honoring our Backyard Heroes

Armida & Randy

Badges and Bouquets

Badges & Bouquets provides the opportunity of a fully sponsored wedding, which is a token of our appreciation for the protection and assistance offered at a moment’s notice by our quiet heroes.

Tina, owner of Diamonds & Dreams, and her fellow event professionals wanted to honor the city’s quiet, backyard heroes—firefighters, EMTs, and law enforcement officers who are overworked and underpaid—with a bit of recognition and a huge wedding celebration.

Each submission is a love letter written by one of the entrants.  They go thru a couple of interviews by phone where I ask about family backgrounds, their relationship,  how they deal with stress of their job, etc.  That information is sent to a panel of judges, the judges then pick the top three couples, and a new round of interviews and more judging.  A single couple is picked and we begin “planning.
