Wish Upon A Wedding

Many members of the Chicago wedding community came out  for Wish Upon a Wedding's First Annual Blissful Wishes Ball which  took place on Monday, November 1, 2010 at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel.
We are humbled to have been nominated for, and to have won the first  Chicago Shining Star Award.  G+S Cofounder Kurt Gerber was honored for charity and generosity within the community.
 Our mission at G + S to is to always be grateful for what we have and always extend our hand to those in need.
We were  also proud to be one of the sponsors for the evening. It was a fun-filled night with over 200 of the most prominent and generous individuals from the wedding industry in attendance. Dana Kozlov from CBS2 Chicago and Dan Bernstein from The Score were the co-emcees and hosts for the evening.
The Blissful Wishes Ball was a gala celebration benefiting Wish upon a Wedding, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide weddings & vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation.

By giving the gifts of dream weddings & vow renewals, Wish Upon a Wedding is able to grant some of the most intimate and heartfelt wishes of these people's lives, and help them share this important day with close family members.  A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales from the Blissful Wishes Ball will benefit Wish upon a Wedding, Chicago, and its mission. This fabulous event would never have happened if it wasn't for the hard work and dedication of our dear friend and colleague, Ali Phillips of Engaging Events by Ali. We are so blessed to have such amazing giving spirit in our community.

Guests at the evening's festivities  were treated to a three-course sit-down dinner, open bar, and dessert provided by Sarah's Pastries and Katherine Anne Confections. Entertainment for the evening was provided by the Larry King Orchestra and it didn't take long for them to get the dance floor going!  Guests also had a chance to experience Shutterbooth's photo booth, have their photos taken by Gerber + Scarpelli Photography, be a part of  the highlight film of I Do Films, as well as view the extravagant decor provided by Bbj linenThe Meetinghouse Companies, inc.Classic Party RentalsTablescapes Party RentalMore Cupcakes Frost lighting and CS Brides.
