We recently shared a wonderful story with you about Patti Furrow and Phil Sedgwick- a Portland Oregon couple facing unimaginable obstacles who deserved the wedding of their dreams. Patty picked up the phone one day to search for a reception venue- and she ended up speaking with one of our employees who connected them to the Portland, Oregon Chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding.
Wish Upon a Wedding is the world’s first nonprofit wish granting organization providing weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. They are devoted to helping couples in dire situations who do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. This organization takes care of all the details, and offers couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.
We are honored to know of this couple and this wonderful organization. Thanks to Wish Upon a Wedding, Patti and Phil were married on November 12, 2010 and they are Portland’s first Wedding Wish Recipients! See their story below…..
