TACOMA, Wash. — There were emotional scenes when a 911 operator and a bride she donated her wedding dress to after hers was stolen met for the first time yesterday.
Newlywed Amanda, from Tacoma, Washington, surprised Candice at her office both to return her dress and to say a personal and heartfelt thank you to the woman she credits with saving her wedding. Amanda was preparing for the biggest day of her life when she got the biggest shock of her life — her dress was stolen from her car on the morning of the nuptials.
She told Good Morning America the dress was worth $6,000 and was handed down to her by her cousin. What's more — the woman who stole the dress was said to be laughing as she drove off with it. She has still not been caught.
