Lori & Mark's Wish Granted in Chicago!

Lori & Mark Get Married!

Lori and Mark – who met over 30 years ago in high school – rekindled their romance in 2011 when Mark finally decided to join Facebook. They got engaged and started planning a destination wedding set for August 2012. Despite the excitement of their upcoming nuptials, their happiness was short-lived when Lori found a lump in her breast that Spring. She was soon diagnosed with breast cancer, had a lumpectomy in May, and was scheduled to start chemotherapy in July. By that point, they knew that their summer wedding plans were out of the question.

Lori happened to hear about Wish Upon a Wedding through her Oncologist’s office and decided it couldn’t hurt to apply. Their wedding dreams came true this past March when they celebrated with their closest friends and family at Room 1520 in Chicago’s west side with the help of some of Chicago’s top wedding vendors. Here are just some of the beautiful photos from Lori and Mark’s wedding day, courtesy of Rick Aguilar Studios.
