Wish Upon a Wedding

Wish Upon a Wedding is a fabulous organization that provides free-of-charge weddings, allowing couples facing serious life-altering circumstances to concentrate on the issues affecting their lives. From the venue to the cake, and most everything between, they take care of all the wedding planning and details. It is their hope that they can  provide strength and courage to those facing similar situations, while celebrating the eternal commitment of marriage.
Who Qualifies?
Wishes are granted with priority given to couples facing terminal illness (prognosis of under 5 years). However a limited number of “special circumstance” Wishes may also be granted each year, based on the individual chapter’s available resources.(Examples of  possible “special circumstances” would be seriously injured military service members, or other extreme hardships)Couples must be over the age of 18, and citizens of the United States.
I found this wonderful wedding on their 2011 weddings. Meet Jake, a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps and Meredith, a former Marine Corps Officer. This couple was faced with adversities and hardships, that most of us may not be able to handle. Without knowing, a co-worker of Meredith’s submitted the couple’s story to Wish Upon A Wedding’s DC  and the rest is history. Congrats Jake & Meredith!
