For several years, Rosalyn Ferrer, 50, and Rommel Basco, 55, reside in a small shack in an empty patch of wasteland with six children; hence the dream of having a wedding wasn’t a thing that could be afforded.

Fortunately, Richard Strandz and his friends help give the couple a surprise makeover and wedding.

We never had enough money, and we concentrated on getting enough food to eat each day. Now I feel so blessed that it has happened. I am so thankful.’ Rosalyn, according to Daily Mail, said.
