Free wedding gowns given to military brides

Posted: Updated:
ROSWELL, Ga. -

Wedding Angels Bridal Boutique in Roswell gave away dozens of wedding dresses to the future wives of servicemen.
    
The brides had their pick of a designer dream dress at no cost on Tuesday. Many couple's wedding dates are quickly approaching because of deployment, so the brides said the dress giveaway was a big relief.

Marketta Johnson was one of the brides-to-be to receive the gift.

"I want to make him teary-eyed and I think it will," she said.

Some brides arrived as early at 3 a.m. in hopes of securing a designer gown that sometimes can cost thousands of dollars.

This is the fifth year Wedding Angel Bridal has helped military brides. Last year they gave away more than 100 dresses.

If you have a wedding gown you'd like to donate to the program, drop it off at Wedding Angels in Roswell.

    Prosecutors considered him their key witness, a longtime Gwinnett developer given immunity to spill what he knew about corruption inside county government. David Jenkins testified before a Gwinnett grand jury in 2010. He also met multiple times with prosecutors. Those interviews were videotaped. Four years later, prosecutors agreed to a no contest plea bargain with former commissioner Kevin Kenerly on one count of bribery. He will serve 10 years on probation and pay a $10,000 fine.
