Foreclosure Forces Reception Venue Shutdown, Leaving Dozens Of Brides Out Thousand$ & Without Place To Hold Weddings; Victims: Owner Knowingly Pocketed Upfront Deposits While Facing Imminent Boot

In Chandler, Arizona, KNXV-TV Channel 15 reports:

  • A local Chandler wedding venue closed its doors leaving dozens of brides out of money and out of a place to hold their wedding.

    Inspirador, owned by Dilia Wood, emailed clients Saturday telling them they needed to shut down immediately, blaming a recent foreclosure for the problem.

    According to the company's bank, Inspirador has had financial problems since 2011. The bank took over the bank last week.

    Brides like Theresa Tanner aren't happy. Tanner has already paid for her wedding in full. It cost her $14,000 to host 170 guests at her wedding that's supposed to happen in 30 days.

    "We have to cancel her honeymoon," said Tanner. She's doing that to pay for her wedding.

    "It's the coldest thing you can imagine. This is the place where all my dreams would come true and this is the place that shattered them all in an email," said Tanner.

    Tanner, along with 60 other brides received the same letter saying the company had to close it's doors immediately.
