TAMPA, Fla. - A Florida couple looking to help children in their community asked guests to bring school supplies instead of gifts to their wedding.

Not only did Kelli and Matt Cameron of Tampa tie the knot, they received backpacks jammed with school supplies and uniforms from over 70 guests, WTVT reports.

All the wedding donations will be handed over to Booker T. Washington Elementary in Tampa for students who attend the school.

“Being a teacher, I know a lot of kids come with nothing to school,” said Kelli. “And you see the kids so excited about the little things: a backpack, or new shoes. It's so important that they can start school excited, and a lot of teachers spend their own money for their kids. This helped out a little bit."
