National Raise Awareness Week: Wish Upon a Wedding

As a lot of you know, charity work is near and dear to Meghan and I’s hearts. Each year we volunteer over 500 hours to a non-profit, ReCreation Camp which we direct. It’s the time there that revives us and inspires us to do what we do every other day of the year that we aren’t at camp.

When I found out about Wish Upon A Wedding, I immediately signed us up to help in any way we could. We love making a difference in people’s lives, and through this organization, we knew that would be possible.

Liz Guthrie, the founder of Wish Upon A Wedding says it best: The purpose of Wish Upon a Wedding is to produce weddings and civil union ceremonies at destinations across the USA for terminally ill individuals, regardless of sexual orientation.

In order to apply for a wish, applicants must be unmarried legal citizens of the United States, over the age of 18, who have been diagnosed with less than three years to live.

There are three types of weddings the applicants can choose from:

  1. URGENT (Up to 10 guests, in hospital or at bedside)
  2. BOUTIQUE (up to 25 guests, in home town of applicant)
  3. ROMANTIC (Up to 50 guests, at any WUW destination)

My mind immediately goes to the movie, A Walk to Remember…I start thinking about how awesome it was that the couple married, building a one of a kind memory together, even when she was sick…it was a memory they, and their families, would have forever, even after the person was gone.

We will continue to support Wish Upon A Wedding throughout our time in the industry – we wish nothing but the best for this organization!

Continue to Elevate,
