WUW’s 50th Wish: Ashley & Brian

We were so thrilled to learn that Wish Upon a Wedding’s 50th wish was going to be a Chicago couple, Ashley and Brian’s nuptials on October 14, 2012.

Brian met Ashley at the lowest point in his life, about two years after returning from a nine-month tour in Afghanistan. He was suffering from a great deal of emotional stress, haunting memories and an almost debilitating disease known as Active Ulcerative Pancolitis, an unfortunate result of his deployment. He stumbled across Ashley’s profile on the dating site, OKcupid.com, and reached out to her on a whim. To his surprise, she responded within the hour!

It took only six short months of spending almost every possible moment together to realize that this was it. Together with Ashley’s son, Kaiden, they wanted to be a family… Wish Upon a Wedding Chicago was so honored to help make their dream come true. They celebrated their wedding day surrounded by their closest friends and family and had a night they would never forget.
