Valentine’s Countdown Day 1….Love Battles Illness

This year 27 Miracles wants to bring you,  our faithful readers,  something different for Valentine’s Day.  There are already so many stories about what you can buy, how to be romantic, how to pick jewelery and who is having the best sales.  We decided this year to focus on some touching stories of some of our past clients that did some inspiring things to show their loved one that they were more than loved.

Stay tuned for the next 14 days and watch all our love stories.

Many of you may remember the story of Ivonne and Andrew, america’s love story couple.  Ivonne was diagnosed with cancer and not slated to survive, but her faith in God her family support and the love of her fiance Andrew, changed all that.

Read in Ivonne’s own words her love story …..then watch the video…

“This is how Andrew and I met.  One day, my friend and Andrews’s friend decided to set us up on a blind date. They thought we would be just perfect together.  They described Andrew as tall, handsome and very shy. So I decided to give the date a try. We first met at the Fashion Square Mall, where we had the most awkward date; he bought me a cookie and didn’t talk to me all night. Luckily we gave it another try. And we are so glad that we did because we discovered the amazing connections we have.  Little did I know that the same place he asked me to be his girlfriend, under a gazebo, would be where he proposed one day.

How we got engaged… He took me to my favorite restaurant, Crave, on December 06, 2011; we had a very nice dinner. When we left he put a blind fold on me and told me he was taking me to a very special place. I asked him about a few different places that I thought he might have been taking me. I had a feeling about what was going to happen that night and I started crying under the blind fold of course I did not let him see me. About 20 minutes later he parks somewhere and opened my car door. It was extremely quiet and I couldn’t hear anything. He carried me for about 2 minutes and put me down. He told me that he loved me and he told me how special I was to him. He also he mentioned that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He took the blindfold off and we were in that special gazebo, I looked down and there he was on one knee, crying with me and asked me the four most special words a man can ask “would you marry me?” I said, “Yes, of course!!”

Special hobbies… A few of the most special hobbies we have together as a couple is playing pool, I have yet to beat him! We also love going jet skiing and wakeboarding.  We also love doing new things, whether going to a movie or going zip lining, we can’t do the same thing all the time.

Vision of wedding… My vision of my wedding has always been extravagant and BLING everywhere. Now that’s what I always thought I would want. Now that we have talked about it, I still love extravagant things at weddings but we also love the idea of a romantic wedding with candles everywhere and beautiful flower centerpieces. Whenever we watch the weddings on TV we love the idea of the candle lights, that’s our favorite. Romantic Simple Bling!! lol!!

A change of course…I was diagnosed on Feb. 13, 2012 with Hodgkin Lymphoma, the news was extremely shocking for us, but did not expect something like this at all. I went to the hospital that day by myself found out the news by myself and in less than an hour later, Andrew, my mom , dad, aunt, grandma and future mother in law were there and I thought to myself how lucky I was to have such a wonderful family who loved me and supported me so much.

I was in and out of the hospital for weeks at a time and there was someone there, always with me, they never left me alone. I had chemotherapy for three months. I felt weak, tired, nauseous and everything in between. I remember some days not being able to get up from my bed., how sore I felt throughout my whole body, not wanting to eat because I couldn’t even smell the food and Andrew having to feed me because my body was in pain.

I think that the worst time of everything combined was the thought of losing my hair. After the first treatment, I cut it very short.  Then when my second treatment came around, it started falling out in a lot of clumps.  So Andrew, my dad and I decided to shave it all off.  Yet, in light of all I went through, shaving my head turned out to be one of my best memories!

I also always told myself, all this is happening for a reason and I realized that being with children at the hospital and watching them go through everything I had to go through, was becoming my true passion and calling.  This solidified my decision to go back to school and study pediatric- oncology nursing. The whole experience from the initial diagnosis of my cancer to the days of getting treatments to fight the cancer and everything in-between has taught me so much! It has taught me to be strong and to never lose faith in God because no matter what is going on through the ups and downs of my life; God has shown me that he is always going to be there for me.”

America Loves Ivonne and Andrew……

You might say who is Ivonne and Andrew? And why does America love them?   If you haven’t been following the story of Ivonne and Andrew, here is a brief synopsis of it.  Ivonne was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  She has undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation to eliminate the tumors that she has.  She was planning to one day get married in the future to her true love Andrew. Unfortunately this diagnosis changed all their plans to have the wedding of the dreams. Treatments, medical expenses, loss of a job, placed them in a situation that made the planning of a wedding impossible and to also move the wedding up to August 2012 as opposed to next year was even harder.  Their story has touched people all over the US as the outreach of donation offers is coming from places other than Florida and even out of the USA.

Minerva’s Bridal  contacted Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles and asked if there was anything that we could do to help this bride in need.  Rosie went to work contacting her fellow Orlando/Tampa vendors to help.  The response was overwhelming with the offers that she received. At this time the wedding is pretty much planned.  There is a surprise honeymoon destination, however the  fare is what is needed.  27 Miracles is asking for your support if you would like to help, please send an email to 27 Miracles at info@27miraclesbyrosie.com and you can receive details there as to how to give to help this couple. 

In The meantime 27 Miracles wants to give an open thank you to the following vendors below.  Now there are many other vendors involved, however those will be revealed after the wedding as they are saved for a wedding day surprise…..

Minerva’s Bridal, Sheraton Hotel Lake Buena Vista, A Chair Affair, Gaylord Palms Hotel, Nannuk Media, Nannuk Invitations, Andy Martin Photography, Key Moments Videography, John Michael Catering, About Face, Miami Pro DJ’s, Pastor Silva and many more that will be revealed soon on the wedding day…….

Winter Park Wedding of Desiree and Nguyen Vu

What do you think about strolling through the quaint streets of Winter Park? Walking on the beautiful grounds of Rollins College, The Farmers Market, Park Avenue and making a stop at St Margaret Mary’s and ending at the Winter Park Civic Center; with jazz  music filling the warm fall air, the smells of coffee and sweets along the way.  Well on October 29 2011 that is what Desiree and Nguyen Vu did.  But the order of it was a bit different, first it was St Margaret Mary’s for a beautiful touching ceremony, then for some picture fun at Rollins College, the Farmer’s Market, Park Avenue and ending in a night of fun at the Winter Park Civic Center. Watch as Key Moments Videographer Mary Angelini http://www.keymomentsonline.com/winter-park-wedding-orlando-florida-wedding-videographer captured this amazing Day.  Then right after watch a surprise planned by 27 Miracles to help the groom surprise his beautiful bride.  Enjoy!!

A Beautiful Fusion Wedding Desiree and Nguyen Vu

Picture it, a beautiful fall day in scenic Winter park, crisp whites and a day full of beautiful traditions for a fusion wedding.  Some of you may ask what is a fusion wedding?  A fusion wedding is when you have two people from different cultures and they blend their wedding ideas together to honor their heritage and their families’ heritage.  27 Miracles was very happy to coordinate the wedding of Desiree and Nguyen Vu.  Nguyen Vu’s heritage is Vietnamese and they both came to planner Rosie Moore, with the hopes of blending culture into the wedding.

Copy of _DSC7869

The ceremony incorporated a reading from the Bible in Vietnamese, no matter what language it was read in, the translation of love comes shining through whenever the verses of love are read.  At the reception the bride wanted to surprise the groom by hand making herself banners in Vietnamese that read, I love you.  The interesting thing is that there is a way to say it to a female and a way to say it to a male and she captured both.  You will see the banners in the photo with the wedding cake.

Now the great part of the bride and groom is their love of the outdoors and sports.  Desiree is a runner so it is no small surprise that on the day of the wedding she ran 5 miles bright and early.  Nguyen Vu is a cyclist  and yes he did ride his bike that morning as well.  A huge waffle breakfast with fresh strawberries awaited Desiree on her wedding day.  Her favorite food!! Check out the decor on the wedding cake, you will have to look at that detail it is great.  And while you are looking, take a look at the wedding favors embroidered with the groom’s favorite sport. Our reception room was filled with jars of candles, it created a warm and inviting romantic atmosphere!! There were over a hundred pasta jars filled with candles to make that romantic yet rustic wedding look.

To make the night more interesting, 27 Miracles planner, Rosie Moore, coordinated a distraction with the groom as he sang a surprise song for the bride.  See it here on the video http://vimeo.com/31492588     The bride was totally surprised!!! Mission accomplished, thanks to the staff of John Michael Catering that helped 27 Miracles pull this off.

We wish Desiree and Nguyen Vu a lifetime of happiness….

We want to thank all the vendors that made this day special for Desiree and Nguyen Vu as well as 27 Miracles.
