On May 22, 2019, Sharn and Anthony stood before family and friends on the beautiful grounds of the BallensIsles Country Club to unite their lives together in marriage and to celebrate a union that had already endured through it’s fair share of pain and struggle.
Sharn and Anthony first met online a couple of years ago. They were both starting over, with children in tow and were looking to find love again. After corresponding for a while, they decided to meet. From day one, Sharn was struck by what a true gentleman Anthony was and how he made her feel so special. They went on a couple of wonderful dates and soon became inseparable.
They were engaged on May 19, 2018 and were excited to start planning their wedding when they received some terrible news. Sharn’s routine mammogram had come back as irregular. Further testing revealed the worst. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and over the next few months, endured a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. Throughout it all, Sharn and Anthony’s love continued to grow. Wish Upon a Wedding couldn’t help but fall in love with this lovely couple.
We teamed up with our friend Linsey Bruce Lefhowitz, who enlisted the help of an outstanding crew of wish granters. We kicked things off with a gorgeous love story photo shoot at the magical Bamboo Gallery. Sharn and Anthony toured the grounds, danced among the flowers and enjoyed a few precious hours together.
Come wish day, the couple was all smiles. The day was met with brilliant sunshine and plenty of south Florida heat! From Sharn’s gorgeous lace gown to the breathtaking flowers, over-the-top cake and delicious cuisine, every detail was just right. Guests enjoyed an evening filled with heartwarming speeches, a vibrant dance floor and so much love and laughter.
We are forever indebted to the many fine folks who helped make Sharn and Anthony’s wish come true. Thanks a million to this team:
