In July, Kerry Coryell posted a 3-page ad on Craigslist looking for folks that might be willing to trade services so that she could have the wedding of her dreams.

To her delight, the response was overwhelming. Coryell and her finance Kurt VanDerLinde ultimately received in excess of $75,000 worth of goods and services, many of which were donated, not traded.  The couple was married on the Brig Pilgrim wooden tall ship in Dana Point Harbor with flying doves and a ride in a 1964 Princess Rolls Royce limousine.
