Wish Upon a Wedding

“For one night Nick
felt like a normal man who was loving me. And for one night I felt like a woman
who was able to love her husband instead of wondering what was going to happen
next.“ – Bahar, Wish Recipient
WishUpon a Wedding is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization granting weddings and vow
renewals for couples facing serious illness or a life-altering circumstance.
WUW is a national organization that grants wishes all over the country with the
assistance of local city chapters, one of which is here in Chicago.
annual Gala will take place this year on Monday, November 7th at Morgan
Manufacturing with food and beverage provided by Food for Thought, Photography
by Studio This Is, Videography by Wholehearted Films, Music by BeatMix Music,
Invitations by Magnificent Milestones, Linens by Nuage Designs, and more partners
to be announced soon! Information and tickets will be available via the
organization’s Facebook page in the coming months.

Wish Upon a Wedding seeks to celebrate
the courage, determination and spirit of couples by granting their dream
wedding wish, and for these chosen recipients to inspire other couples facing
similar situations to find hope and strength. Wish recipients have either been
diagnosed with less than five years to live or have endured serious
life-altering circumstances. The city’s industry professionals join together
with the local board to give the couple the wedding of their dreams.
“It’s truly touching to
see the way the industry comes together in support of these couples, and to
witness the strength and powerful love our couples share with one another.  Getting to know such courageous and kind
individuals is beyond inspiring and being a part of an organization with the
sole purpose of giving back to those who need it most has given me a whole new
outlook on the true meaning of a wedding.”   
 – Shannon Gail Clemonds, Wish
Upon a Wedding Chicago, Marketing Chair
The Chicago Chapter is always looking
for more individuals to be a part of spreading love. You do not need to be a
wedding professional to get involved. From broadening their reach and sharing
their message to opportunities to participate in events with board members,
wish granters and wish recipients, there are many avenues to get involved with
the organization.
