Setting Up The STL Wish Upon a Wedding Gala

by Ashley in General on November 16, 2010

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!

You heard me right, Wish Upon a Wedding St. Louis made it’s first appearance at a bridal show – the St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show at Windows on Washington in downtown St. Louis to be exact! Before I go any further, I MUST send out a very, very big thank you to Kassaundra and Adam from St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide for donating a booth to Wish Upon a Wedding St. Louis! It was such a generous offer and we appreciate it more than I can say!

Kristin Weis, our board secretary, and I were on site for the four hour show to promote the organization, and I must admit the turnout and response was fantastic! Not that I would expect anything less from St. Louis! While many brides and their families had never heard of Wish Upon a Wedding, they certainly left more informed and eager to help out!

Wish Upon a Wedding St. Louis

by Ashley in General on April 13, 2010

wuw stl1 Wish Upon a Wedding St. LouisOn the off chance you haven’t heard already, I wanted to take a moment to write about something fantastic coming to the wedding industry right in our own backyard – here in St. Louis. It’s Wish Upon a Wedding and it’s exploding nationwide right now! Founded in San Francisco in January 2010, Wish Upon a Wedding is the world’s first wedding wish granting organization. What’s great about Wish Upon a Wedding is that they base their work on the “concept that two people in love should never be denied the chance to marry their soul mate, even if they only have months (or weeks) to live. Their primary purpose is to serve as a charitable foundation, dedicated to providing weddings and civil union ceremonies at destinations across the United States.”
