Some wish recipient stories:
In 2009, Founder, Liz Guthrie, was producing a large scale wedding giveaway in San Francisco, she realized that there are so many couples in need, and so many generous business owners offering to donate their time and services to a deserving couple. She found herself asking if there was a way to donate dream weddings to couples across the country facing life threatening illnesses and challenges.
Out of the 350 couples that entered the giveaway, one bride-to-be stood out in her mind.
Vanessa was battling Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while her fiancé, an officer in the US Air Force, was deployed overseas. This couple won the Giveaway through public voting, and it was their Love Story that ultimately inspired the creation of Wish Upon a Wedding.
