Couple Shares Love with Guests while Spreading Hope to Children

A love for family - especially for children - is one important value that made Jamie and Peter a perfect match.  After dating for a year, they knew they had found true love, and they became engaged in Venice, Italy.  As they talked about their marriage, they agreed they wanted it to begin with a day they would always remember. 

Jamie and Peter planned for 16 months to make their wedding day a special occasion, but the one missing piece was the favors they would present to their guests.  They decided they didn’t want to give traditional favors that guests would leave on the tables or throw away.  Instead, they needed something special and unique--a favor with significance--something that represented their interests and their passions.  After perusing Web sites, Jamie decided to participate in the Wedding Tribute program offered by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. 

Jamie found the St. Jude Web site easy to navigate and discovered that two beautiful favor options were available, either of which could be personalized.  She chose the bookmark, and St. Jude printed and mailed them to her within a week.

On their wedding day, Jamie and Peter placed the bookmarks, personalized with black ribbons to match the theme, in guests’ chairs.  Later at the reception, they listened to their guests’ reactions of delight at the thoughtful gift.

“The St. Jude Wedding Tribute program was very impressive,” said Jamie.  “Our guests were so appreciative that we had tried a new and thoughtful way to thank them for being part of our special day.”  Commenting on how the bookmarks added a personal touch to the wedding by pulling everything together, Jamie added that “the bookmarks were meaningful, and they added to the décor by highlighting our interests.”

By choosing to participate in the Wedding Tribute program, Jamie and Peter were not only sharing their love with their wedding guests and thanking them for being a part of their special day but also spreading hope to children who depend upon the work done at St. Jude.  This special program helps ensure that the groundbreaking research and life-saving care provided at St. Jude may continue and that children battling life-threatening illnesses may have the chance to experience a special day of their own.
