Past Wishes and Love Stories
Angela and Brad first met as little kids growing up in the same neighborhood. Their mothers were friends and they spent their childhood playing together and becoming good friends. Following high school, they went their separate ways. It wasn’t until years later, when they had both gone through divorces, that they reconnected and saw each other in a new light.
Unfortunately, cancer had other plans for Angela and Brad’s relationship. Wish Upon a Wedding was so touched by Angela and Brad’s beautiful love story and the incredible strength and joy that she has exhibited throughout this journey. We are thrilled to grant their wish for a wedding on December 11 and are so thankful for the amazing team of wish granters who have signed up to help.
On November 2, 2018, David and Angie stood before their family and friends and renewed their vows on the grounds of Roanoke’s breathtaking Plantation of Sunnybrook. The couple had recently celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary and the day marked the perfect occasion to remember all of the very good times they’ve experienced together.
Three years ago David was diagnosed with an aggressive form of colon cancer that metastasized to his liver. It was his dream to renew his vows in front of their sweet little girl and to gift her the gift of a wedding dance with her daddy.
Dalen and Stacie first met online several years ago. They began talking and embarked upon a long distance relationship that has turned into the great love of their lives.
