Houston church helps homeless couple tie the knot
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A homeless man and woman said "I do" Sunday in front of the church members who made their wedding possible.
Bryan Prejean and Wanda Ware exchanged vows at the downtown campus of Houston's First Baptist Church.
They've known each other for years and grew closer as they tried to get their lives back on track with their church's help while they were both on the street.
"I started talking to him. We started dating. I've known him about seven years," Ware said. "He's really a great guy with a good heart. And he loves God, and that's what I was looking for: a man who loves God."
Church members donated the dress, decorations, food and even paid for the honeymoon.
Ware says she's going to college in June to study case management so she can help others in need.
