OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – A pastry chef with a heart of candy is making dreams come true for some special brides. 

Leia Perez is a self-taught baker, who turned a hobby into Candyland Designs. This cake designer is not just running her business, she’s also granting wishes. Perez is helping make weddings come true for women facing a life-altering health circumstance. 

Their website goes on to say, "The goal is to partner with other local wedding industry professionals with a vision to give couples and their loved ones a day away from serious illness. Due to health-related circumstances outside of their control, the couples we are trying to honor have endured far greater challenges than many of us could possibly imagine and we aim to celebrate their love for one another."

“I mean, some days are longer than others and I am absolutely exhausted but what I am doing is fulfilling, I am happy doing what I am doing… At the end of the day I wouldn't have it any other way,” Perez said. 

Perez said none of this would be possible if it weren't for the vendors chipping in. Volunteering their time and services. Perez is looking for the next bride to grant their wedding wish. If you’d like to apply to become a bride or donate click here.
