Richmond, Va. – Instead of asking their guests to get them a gift from an online registry, a Richmond couple took their wedding party to a blood center to donate.

Barry Gamble and his new wife, Monica, had a ‘destination wedding,’ that ended up at the Virginia Blood Services Donor Center in Richmond, according to WTVR.

The staff at Virginia Blood Services decorated the clinic to look like a wedding chapel, and even offered cake as a snack to replenish.
