Dave and I very excited to be a part of the first wedding wish granting organization in the United States, Wish Upon a Wedding. Wish Upon a Wedding was founded in January of 2010, and is dedicated to producing weddings and civil ceremonies for individuals facing terminal illness. The Chicago chapter just launched and in celebration of it's launch many Chicago wedding vendors came together at an event to show their support. Ali Phillips, the president of the Chicago chapter, announced the first couple in Chicago to have their wedding wish granted. Beth and Nick will be married on April 18, 2010.
This film by I Do Films tells their story beautifully.
If you are a wedding vendor and are interested in becoming a wish granter, you can find more info on their website about how to do so. If you know a couple in which one or both are terminally ill, and wish to be married, tell them about Wish Upon a Wedding!
