An Art Deco Chicago Wedding Wish

Rachel and Alvie first met at a dive bar in 2006. They immediately noticed each other because of their height (she’s 6’6’, he’s 6’7’). He walked over and introduced himself and the two chatted for a while. Two days later, Alvie called Rachel and they immediately hit it off and began a long, committed relationship. In 2013, Alvie had a brain aneurism that ruptured and he nearly died. It was a wakeup call for the couple. After Alvie recovered, they became pregnant with their first child and decided to finally get married. In 2017, shortly after the birth of their second child, Rachel started to have some rib pain and was having trouble carrying her baby around. She had been coughing for months and was beginning to feel worried. By March of 2018, her pain was so unbearable that she went to get checked out. Her scans revealed that she had an aggressive form of breast cancer that had spread to her bones. She has spent the past year receiving a variety of ongoing treatments, including hormone blockers, chemotherapy, radiation and laser treatments. Wish Upon a Wedding was thrilled to grant Rachel and Alvie’s wish for a vow renewal and to celebrate a love that has conquered so much.
