|Like you romantics out there, we’re all about tradition… so can’t help but adore when couples go all-out for milestone anniversaries!

|As any good hostess or seasoned party girl knows, the tunes can make or break the mood of an event.

Hum along to one of these tunes, shake those hips or even drag him to the dance floor.
|The young Wish Upon a Wedding organization has already seen great success right here in Indianapolis. Monica Richard, founding president of the Chapter, along with 11 board members and more than 150 “Wish granting” companies, watched with pride as the chapter was born in January 2011. So far, the team of Wish granters has created two fairy tale weddings in the Indianapolis area—certainly with more to come.
