A NorCal Love Story

A NorCal Love Story

Brook and Mike first met online last summer. They began chatting and decided to meet in person. Within the first few days of hanging out, Brook knew that she had to tell Mike some very hard news. Earlier that year she had been diagnosed with breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nodes. Much to her surprise, Mike wasn’t scared and told her that he was sticking around. After a couple of failed treatment plans, Brook made the very hard decision to switch to palliative care. Although she struggles with an enormous amount of pain and fatigue on a daily basis, she’s trying to remain positive and be the best mom that she can be to the couple’s combined 9 children. 

Wish Upon a Wedding fell head over heels for this fun-loving couple and cannot wait to grant their wish for a wedding.

Kerry and Kiernon first met when they were home from college on a break. They fell in love and ended up getting married just 10 months later. Two months into their marriage, Kerry unexpectedly collapsed while on the treadmill at the gym. She went into cardiac arrest and was air lifted to a near by hospital where she was diagnosed with a very serious heart condition. She underwent a surgery to have a defibrillator implanted. Over the next 18 years, they had four beautiful children and Kerry was able to manage her heart condition fairly well until having another massive heart episode.  Six months later, it happened again and her condition began to rapidly worsen. She was put on a list for a heart transplant and got the call on September 12, 2017. During her surgery, she suffered major complications, which resulted in a stroke. She spent seven weeks in the hospital and countless months in rehab learning how to do everything again. Throughout it all, Kiernon has been her rock.

We have loved meeting and getting to know Kerry and Kiernon and were honored to grant their wish for a vow renewal.
