And she instantly felt it was a case of divine intervention. Ready to head to the venue for her big day, 23-year-old amanda was packing up the car on sunday when the unthinkable happened. I'm calling to report stuff stolen. I'm sorry? You said your truck was stolen? No. I'm trying to -- my -- my wedding dress. Reporter: Someone had swooped in and swiped her dress, in brdaylight, right outside her kent, washington apartment. Are you getting married today? Yeah. What does that? It was $6,000. It was from a cousin of mine. She was handing it down to me. So, yeah. It was more sentimental value. Reporter: Then, the 911 dispatcher asked a seemingly odd question. What size was your dress? Like a one or a three. I'm thinking, well, I have a dress. Maybe it will work for her. Reporter:28-year-old candice felt so bad for her caller, she asked her supervisor if she could offer to lend amanda her own wedding dress. It was an immediate reaction. I've been a bride. I can put myself in her place about how horrified she would be. That's kind of the biggest part of the wedding. Reporter: Candice texted a photo of herself in a dress to the officer on the scene, so he could show it to the bride to be. In the pictures, I could tell it would fit me. Reporter: From there, the pictures tell it all. Amanda looked dazzling in the same dress candice wore a year and a half earlier. Oh, my gosh. Hi. Hi. Reporter: The forever-bonded brides met face-to-face for the first time thursday. I'm a little bit emotional. You're seriously an amazi person. A lot of people wouldn't have done that. Reporter: A case of something borrowed also leading to something new. I made a new friend today. Pretty cool. Yeah. So, amanda says she's going to have the dress preserved for candice. Police have not been able to track down the stolen dress. But amanda said, it was a woman who stole the dress. As she drove off, she laughed. Isn't that disgusting? I love that they were the exact same size. The dresses came from the same store. And -- what are the chances? Aman da sent a text, saying it went off without a hitch.
