Christopher + Heather
Wish Upon a Wedding
One of thee most touching weddings I have ever filmed was Wish Upon A Wedding for my Bride Heather who was from Portland.
The Northern California Chapter of Wish Upon A Wedding picks a special bride every year that usually is a very special bride.
Heather told us she didn’t know what lies ahead for her in this journey, but she did know that she wanted to celebrate her love for Chris and his unwavering love for her.
She knew that she wanted it “without drama, without stress, and simply in joy.” We like to think that everything was done to make that happen for the both of them.
Heather has been diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer, and upon her celebration of three years in remission this past February she learned that the cancer has metastasized to her lungs.
”Your idea of ‘future’ changes,” says Heather, who also has a nine-year-old daughter.
Granting her Wedding Wish is just one way that we hope to help them make the most of that future.
This spectacular event would not have been possible if it were not for the kindness and generosity of our vendors from all
over the greater San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California, and Portland.
