Wish Upon a Wedding…

Wish Upon a Wedding has been garnering a lot of media attention recently both locally in the Greater Philadelphia Area as well as Nationally. Launched in January 2010, Wish Upon a Wedding was "the world's first nonprofit wish granting organization providing weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-changing circumstances regardless of sexual orientation." The Philadelphia Chapter, of which Chief Event Planner Randi Martin was a member of the founding board, launched in January 2011 to a community of wedding and event professionals eager to help couples facing these significant challenges.

Since the launch, Wish Upon a Wedding Philadelphia has granted over 8 wedding wishes, with the most recent being Melanie and Pierre on August 7, 2014 at the Hotel Monaco. Trilogy Event Design Chief Event Planner Randi Martin took over the position of President of the Philadelphia Chapter at the end of 2013, which General Manager Michael Magro Jr assumed her former position of Vice-President. Under Randi's leadership, the volunteer-board has granted three wedding wishes this year, more than any other national chapter, and has held or participated in multiple outreach activities to improve awareness of the organization.
