They canceled the wedding after her brother was accused of the shooting at Emanuel AME church just three days earlier.

Canceling the ceremony cost them thousands of dollars and brought sorrow, pain and shame to her wedding day, she said on the Go Fund Me page.

"Our wedding day was supposed to be the most important and special day of our lives. It was suppose to start our lives together with our new family. Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man," Amber said in the post.

Amber said she will donate 10 percent of the money raised to Emanuel AME.

So far, the couple has not rescheduled their wedding.
