This is the ultimate high-end bridal experience!

The event benefits the East Texas Food Bank and attendees are asked to bring canned goods and non-perishable food items. The East Texas Food Bank distributes more than 18 million pounds of food each year to more than 200 agencies in 26 East Texas counties. Their mission is to reduce hunger by providing food, support and education to those in need.

Here's what Malinda Felts, owner of Shoemaker Hill Ranch, had to say about why she chose the East Texas Food Bank as the benefactor:

We are very excited about this event and excited that we are able to benefit the East Texas Food Bank. Last year God put in my heart a hunger to help feed the hungry and with this event we are helping to do just that."

So plan to attend and don't forget your donations. Tickets can be purchased on-line at Shoemaker Hill Ranch's website.
