OKLAHOMA CITY -

Newlyweds robbed of their honeymoon.

Jeremy and Meagan Schofield vowed to be together for better, or worse on March 8, 2014 in Oklahoma City.

The "worse" part came sooner than they expected. The first day into their married life they noticed something was missing from the reception – the card box.

All of the cards and cash given to them to help pay for their honeymoon had been stolen the night of their wedding.

"We will get through anything together," said Meagan Schofield and her husband Jason agreed," It's a good test for newlyweds."

The two laughed about the unfortunate circumstance and are reminded they still have each other.

Neither one of them are worried about recovering the cash. The two postponed their honeymoon and are eager to warn other couples this sort of thing can happen.

For the father of the groom, Michael Schofield, it's a different story.

"All a father wants is his child to have the best," Schofield, a professional photographer in Moore, Oklahoma, decided to offer up his services in exchange for donations to a honeymoon fund.

He published a donation website sharing the couple's unfortunate circumstances. Schofield included information about a trade – he offered to do free photo sessions in lieu of donations.

He was surprised people began giving donations without asking for anything in return. Soon the newlyweds found out about his plan to make up for the stolen cash.

"I think it hurt him more than it hurt us," said Jeremy Schofield.

Grateful, still, for each other, their family, and the many gifts life will offer them in the future.

"Its just a speed bump, I'm sure we are going to get a lot more of them in life I mean just brush it off and keep going," said the Schofields.
