I find myself very fortunate to be able to do what I love and what makes it even better is knowing that by doing what I love I can also give back to my community. Wish Upon a Wedding allows me to do just that – be a part of an amazing organization geared toward making people’s dreams come true, all while working in the industry I adore! On Sunday I was honored to be a part of setting up and attending our inaugural gala for the Wish Upon a Wedding St. Louis Chapter, the Blissful Wishes Ball. And man oh man, was it a FABULOUS night! So let’s get to it!

I can’t speak for everyone, but I definitely had a great time! Between the food, THE WINE, the dancing and the HILARIOUS photobooth (see pics here), it was a night I won’t soon forget!

And thankfully, we are blessed with amazingly generous vendors in St. Louis who all helped to make this event possible! For that, we all cannot thank you enough!
