Almost 70 years after she was married, Martha Mae Ophelia Moon Tucker finally got to try on a wedding dress.
Recently, she was watching the movie “Coming to America” with her granddaughter Angela Strozier, according to a Facebook post by Strozier. During the wedding scene, Tucker revealed her lifelong dream to try on a wedding dress.
Strozier decided to make that happen.
A few days later, Strozier took Tucker to a local David’s Bridal shop, where Tucker tried on two wedding dresses.
Local makeup artist Pharris Clayton even gave Tucker a makeover, before the dress appointment, according to the Facebook post.
Strozier told AL.com that when they arrived at David’s Bridal she explained the situation to the employees.
