Twenty-four-year-old Kolbie Sanders called off her wedding just one week before the big day, but instead of letting all the hard work and preparation go to waste, she decided to do something special for one lucky couple. She partnered with the wedding venue and called out to brides-to-be on Facebook to enter for a chance to take over their spot. The only catch was that they had to be ready to get married that weekend. 

Kolbie read everyone's stories, did a Facebook Live drawing and picked 22-year-old Halie Hipsher. Now, Just a few days before the wedding, Halie and her fiancee Matthew Jones join us at RTM to talk about their experience and upcoming wedding! Kolbie's story is inspiring so many people, because she was able to turn her heartbreaking situation into something so positive for someone else.
