A Colorado Love Story


On July 8, 2018, Katie and Erik gathered with family and friends at the picturesque Creekside Event Center near Denver, CO to dedicate their lives to one another. Though they are both young and vibrant, their road to the altar has been filled with challenges.


The two first met in grad school, where they were studying to be teachers. After developing a deep friendship, they started dating. Following graduation, Katie and Erik took teaching jobs in the same area. Just before Christmas in 2017, Erik asked Katie to be his wife.

Just 11 days after their engagement, Katie was diagnosed with Leukemia. Following surgery and an intense chemotherapy regiment, she is finally on the road to recovery.

Wish Upon a Wedding was honored to take part in Katie and Erik’s special day. From the amazing mountain backdrop to the gorgeous flowers, delicious food and personal touches, the couple enjoyed a beautiful day where cancer was not the focus.


As with all of our wishes, we couldn’t have done it without the incredibly generous support of our wish granters. Thank you so much!
