On August 26th, 2018, Claudia and Dan stood on the steps of the beautiful Mountain View Manor in Glen Spey, NY and professed their love and devotion to one another in the company of family and friends. To say that they had waited for this day for a long time is an understatement – they’ve been happily dating for the past 29 years.
Claudia and Dan first met in 1989 when a mutual friend introduced them. They began dating right away and welcomed their first baby a year later. Soon after becoming parents, Dan proposed. While the couple had always intended to marry, life became busy and their wedding was pushed to the back burner. They went on to have another child and have spent the past 29 years making wonderful memories together. To all of their friends, Claudia and Dan are viewed as one – they are hardly ever apart and love to be around each other.
In 2012, Claudia was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. Following a painful and aggressive treatment plan that included a double mastectomy and a full hysterectomy, her cancer returned and metastasized to her bones. Through all of her ups and downs, Dan has remained her rock and her comfort.
We were honored to grant this wish for Claudia and Dan. From the gorgeous sunny day, to the breathtaking flowers, delicious cuisine and amazing band, it was a celebration to remember. The couple enjoyed a day of toasts, dancing, cake and most of all, love. We are so incredibly thankful for all of the amazing wish granters to showed up to make the day so special. Thank you!
