Bridal Shop Owner and The Apprentice 2 Finalist, Sandy Ferreira, To Host the 1-hour special

When Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast many engaged couples who were knee deep in catering decisions and seating charts were now waste deep in water and drowning in the emotional devastation of what had just occurred.

Sandy and her team of experts will work tirelessly and passionately to turn each couples wedding dreams into reality.
