Wish Upon a Wedding DC’s Gala Success

The Wish Upon a Wedding DC Blissful Wishes Ball on Nov. 17 was a huge success, and I had an incredible time meeting or catching up with so many fabulous vendors, couples, and Wish Upon a Wedding supporters from all across the D.C. region. Couldn’t join us? Check out the photos below, courtesy of Sweet Tea Photography, for a glimpse inside this elegant evening of giving back and supporting those in need.

Baltimore’s classy Tremont Grand was the perfect setting for a sophisticated affair.

Our president, Shelby Tuck-Horton, presented the chapter's first Shining Star community service award to the Tremont’s own Julie Brown-Edwards.

I’m honored to be a part of our fabulous board, where I work with a team of the most caring, generous and talented women in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

Celebrity jazz artist Art Sherrod Jr. wowed everyone during dinner hour, as our team of dancers lit up the floor.

The photo booth was fun for everyone!

Our silent auction was a big hit! And the best part? You can still bid online for additional items through today, Nov. 30!

Up next, we’ll be working to fulfill a wedding wish for a terminal patient in Morgantown, West Virginia, and another for a very deserving military couple in Maryland. Want to help? Sign up as a wish granter online, donate, or shoot me an email at dcsecretary@wishuponawedding.org!
