Capsul Gives Back: The GWED
Last month, we were lucky enough to be part of the Greatest Wedding Ever Donated. Tiffany & Caleb turned their wedding day into a gala and benefit concert raising money for the five causes they are most passionate about. The wedding raised awareness and funds for mental health, education, research, rare disease, and low-income families.
Groom Caleb was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called cystic fibrosis at the age of 1. Despite being told that his life expectancy was only 19 years old (he is now 27) and fighting his sickness daily, Caleb has mastered the art of living in the moment and appreciating life without expectations.
Tiffany overcame childhood trauma from sexual assault, depression, emotional abuse, poverty, first generational living, suicide and pressure of raising my siblings, by turning her focus to helping others. She works with underserved communities to rebuild homes, create sustainable youth programs, and lead new projects that strengthen individual's understanding of self-awareness and universal love.
These are the causes Tiffany and Caleb raised awareness and funds for:
Cystic Fibrobis Foundation
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for CF and supports a broad range of research initiatives to tackle the disease from all angles. The CF Foundation offers a number of resources for learning about clinical trials and treatments that are being developed to improve the treatment of cystic fibrosis.
Wayfarer Foundation - Low Income Families
The Wayfarer Foundation (WF) was created to support charitable programs that are inspired by content produced by Wayfarer Entertainment. They create and execute events, provide programs and opportunities for communities to engage with the non-profit.
Think Together partners with schools to change the odds for kids. They deliver nationally-recognized expanded learning programs and school improvement, offered through affiliate partner Principal's Exchange to build communities where all kids get a great education that prepares them for college and career.
Global Genes focuses on eliminating the challenges of rare disease. The Foundation’s mission is to unify the international rare and genetic disease community by providing connections and resources to ease the burdens of affected patients and their families.
To Write Love on Her Arms
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.

Capsul provided jewelry for the bride, groom, bridesmaids, and some of the social influencers involved in the event.
The bride and groom created custom sound wave necklaces for each other with secret messages. Tiffany wears her sound wave id necklace below.
The bridesmaids wore custom block bracelets with GWED and Do Good in blocks and mini-blocks.
We created dog tag necklaces for the groomsmen with messages from their families.
We created a bracelet to help thank the evening's DJ, Brandi Cyrus. The bracelet says "Feather" to celebrate the life of her horse that recently passed away.
Watch this space. Tiffany and Caleb plan to start helping other couples and vendors within the wedding industry give back and on their wedding days!
