Leigh says she is still seeing the impact of her request one month after saying "I do."
"They really had a lot of fun with it," she told ABC News. "I find that every time someone does a random act of kindness, they're amazed at how much they benefit as much as the person they're helping."
One of Leigh's bridesmaids, Emily Schairer, took pet supplies to a local animal shelter because she and her young daughter, Chloe, love cats.
Her maid of honor sent her a photo of the doughnuts she brought to a nail salon, while a childhood friend living in London brought frozen yogurt to the security guard at her office building.
Other random acts included buying lunch for a stranger, delivering a surprise batch of cupcakes, baking cookies for the UPS deliveryman and donating supplies to a women's shelter.
Leigh said the random acts of kindness reports have not stopped pouring in since the wedding.
"It was just a way to celebrate the love of our wedding," said Leigh, who sells inspirational artwork on Etsy and is known to do random acts of kindness daily. “It was nice to have such a big chapter of our lives not only create love and happiness for us and for our guests, but for others as well."
