On Sunday, February 26th, 2017 Craig and Deena’s Wish Upon a Wedding Wish came true at the Black Swan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Close friends and family were there to witness as they said their vows and celebrate with the newlyweds.
Craig and Deena met by chance at a corner bar about six years ago and have been inseparable ever since. They took their first date to the Wisconsin State Fair the very next day. There was a special connection between the two of them which continues to grow stronger everyday.
After many more dates and time spent together, Craig proposed and Deena of course said yes! About a month after their engagement Craig received his diagnosis of esophageal cancer. For the next year they put the wedding on hold and begin the fight of their lives side by side.
Cherry Blossom Events helped to make the elegant winter-lodge feel come to life at the Black Swan. On their wedding day, cancer was not the focus. The bride and groom were all smiles as they said “I do” and the day was about the amazing love they have for each other and their desire to live up every moment they can together.
