A New York City Love Story – Lily and Chris

On October 22, 2017, Lilly and Chris gathered in front of family and loved ones for a quintessential New York City wedding. The couple met by happenstance through Chris’s brother nearly seven years ago and felt an undeniable connection to one another from day one. Despite love at first sight, their relationship hit a rough patch and ended not long after it began. While separated, they never forgot about each other and eventually decided to give their love another try. The second time was a charm. Chris proposed to the love of his life on Valentines Day in 2015 and the two have been dreaming about a wedding ever since.

Lilly was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and Dystonia as a young child. The conditions, which are debilitating at times, have had a profound effect upon the couple’s relationship. From doctor’s appointments to an aggressive medication schedule and often unpredictable and long lasting episodes, planning a wedding was truly overwhelming.

Wish Upon a Wedding was thrilled to grant this deserving couple the wedding of their dreams. From the personalized caricature invitations to the breathtaking venue and gorgeous flowers, the day was straight out of a fairy tale. The morning of the wedding, Lilly experienced a disappointing Parkinson’s episode and had to delay her bridal transformation. Miraculously, her episode ended when she donned her wedding dress and she enjoyed the rest of her amazing day symptom free.
