Founded by Heidi Janson, Brides Across America is a national charitable organization with a mission to united military brides and bridal salons as a way to support our troops.
The organization began in 2007 when Heidi coordinated a local event at her bridal boutique in New Hampshire, where she was able to donate fifty gowns. From there, the organization has grown and, with national media support, Brides Across America has gifted over 5,000 gowns to date.
Brides Across America is part of Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network and also teams up with the Smiles across the Miles charity.
