In September, HuffPost Weddings introduced readers to Alissa, a generous newlywed who wanted to give away her wedding dress to a deserving bride-to-be. We helped Alissa spread the word about her gown and in October, we announced that she had chosen a winner.

On Monday, Alissa and the lucky recipient of her gown, Renᅢᄅe Stroinski, met for the first time on the Today Show where Alissa presented Stroinski with the dress.

Watch the video above to see Stroinski's emotional reaction, then click through the slideshow below to see pictures of the gorgeous dress. Want to "pay it forward" and give away your wedding gown? Email
