plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

So, today is the day. St. Louis is officially launching its chapter with a soiree at Lumen.  After nearly a month of recruiting fantastic volunteers to help plan the event, and getting some fantastic vendors on board, the St. Louis wedding industry will be welcoming this organization with welcome arms.

It comes just a few days after it was announced that the Seattle chapter’s first wish passed away.  Just about three weeks prior, Shelly’s dream and wish came true when she got to marry the love of her life, Jay.  At the time, doctors had only given her three weeks to live, and the Seattle chapter put their heads and hearts together to make the wedding happen.  This news is just a reminder of why Wish Upon a Wedding is a wonderful addition to this industry.
