Wish Upon A Wedding at TPC Craig Ranch

I had the privilege of working with the Wish Upon A Wedding Foundation. Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness and serious life altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation.

Tiffany and Mark had only been dating about 4 months when she became very ill and was diagnosed with islet cell hyperplasia.  Over the past two years, Tiffany and Mark (and their combined 6 children) have had to go through a lot, but as you can see from the wonderful film Dulock Productions shared below the family is stronger and happy to have each moment together.  To learn more about Tiffany & Mark’s story, check out their love story.

Wish Upon A Wedding

I had the privilege to work with Mark and Tiffany on their wedding.  While every wedding is special, this one meant a little more to everyone involved.

In 2009 Tiffany met Mark and felt like a school girl again. That same night she wrote a poem, “That time, that moment, when you kiss someone and everything around you becomes hazy, and the only thing in focus is you and this person. And you realize that this person is the only person that you are supposed to kiss for the rest of your life, and for one moment, you get this amazing gift, and you want to laugh, and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it, and so scared that it will go away all at the same time.”

Four short months later she was diagnosed with islet cell hyperplasia. The past 2 years Tiffany has battled for her life. Mark has stood by her side with unwavering love. This is their story.  Special thanks to Dulock Productions for sharing such an amazing testimony of love.

I am so honored that Wish Upon A Wedding asked me to be part of something so special.  I cannot wait to share the reception video with all of you tomorrow.

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.” -Steve Jobs

Being someone who uses Apple products for my business, I am definitely a fanboy.  I am saddened today that Steve lost his battle with cancer, but glad that his pain and suffering are over.

I truly love what I do and hope that I can be truly satisfied by doing great work for clients that I love.
