Rebecca Grinnals, Industry Expert, Speaker  “Wish Upon a Wedding is truly an inspirational organization. The heartfelt mission of granting weddings to couples who are facing terminal illness is one of true compassion. It illustrates the depths of the human spirit. It is also a gift to the wedding industry as a whole as it provides an incredible opportunity for all of us in the market to get involved and give back to those in great need. Personally and professionally, I am humbled and in awe and of everyone behind Wish Upon a Wedding who took on this incredible initiative. It certainly takes a lot of hard work to bring a mission of this magnitude to life. This innovative and selfless organization will provide a legacy of inspiration for anyone involved. They are a shining example of how special the wedding industry is and why we should all feel fortunate to be a part of it. Hats off to the founders, executive board and dedicated wedding professionals around the country who are donating time, talent, heart and soul to make wedding dreams come true for couples in time of great sorrow and need.” Visit Rebecca Grinnals’s website!

Sylvia Weinstock, the Grand Dame of Cakes “I support Wish Upon a Wedding in their efforts to provide weddings to terminally ill individuals.  A simple ceremony and best wishes from friends and family is more meaningful than any grand and extravagant affair. After all it is the commitment that counts.” Visit Sylvia Weinstock’s website




Donnie Brown, Event Designer, TV Celebrity, Author “There are many things in life that are considered milestones. We graduate, we work, we have families and of course get married. We educate ourselves to get good jobs. We work to support our families, purchase homes, college for our kids and weddings. These big ticket items are difficult for everyone to afford. In a world so fiscally volatile, not everyone can handle the expense of some or all these items. Enter “Wish Upon A Wedding” and their genuine attempts to effect the wedding dreams some might never otherwise have. It is a wonderful organization doing something for people that no other in history ever has. I am proud to donate to this organization when they need me. The end result is a smiling couple having a dream wedding that only a small percentage get to enjoy! Keep up the good work!
