On one of the most special wedding dates of our time, Heidi and Billy started a new chapter in their love story as they united in matrimony at the Platinum Hotel in Las Vegas.

In a city where numbers have a special significance, the favored date of 11/11/11 attracted swarms of brides and grooms to Las Vegas, eager for a lucky start to their new lives together. But this date is extra special for Heidi and Billy, as it is also the anniversary of Billy’s parents’ wedding day. Knowing that securing vendors on this date would be next to impossible, Heidi and Billy exemplified their strength and remained faithful that their wedding wish would be granted. And so it was.

Reverend Jerry Withers remarked, “God places you exactly where you are needed. This was an experience that I will always cherish. Of the dozen weddings that I officiated that day, I would have gladly given them all up just to be a part of this one.” Read more about Heidi and Billy’s story and fight against squamous cell carcinoma here.

Thanks to an amazing group of Las Vegas wedding vendors, Heidi and Billy’s wish was granted on a beautiful night atop the Platinum Hotel:

The evening was coordinated by Angelica McDonnell of Green Orchid Events, who was especially honored to donate her services: ‎”I have always been the type to count my blessings, but after being a part of a wedding for Wish Upon A Wedding, I really realized ‘Life is Good.’ Seeing how positive and happy Heidi and Billy are made me want to be a stronger person; it made me make a promise to myself to make a memory everyday with someone I love.”
