Alia and Josh’s Touching Love Story Part I

Alia and Josh are a super colorful and endearing couple with a pretty amazing story. Actually, the New York Times did an amazing write up about them and you may have also seen Alia on Say Yes To The Dress. To say the least, the couple is pretty amazing.

We have highlighted a few of the major points in the article, but for whole story click here. With the help of Dream A Little Dream Events they had a ceremony and celebration to match their spectacular story.

It was a 2 day event. First they were married at San Francisco’s City Hall. The ceremony was attended only by immediate family members, a tradition started by Dr. Creasey’s parents, who wed there in 1975. Followed the next day with a larger beautiful ceremony and party at Alia’s families private home in Calistoga.

Josh and Alia, both medical students met during a rotation at a family medical clinic in Manhattan. Alia never imagined the words, “My hearing is not so good” to be the ones that started a beautiful relationship with the love of her life. Josh was taking Cisplatin, a chemotherapy drug that can cause hearing loss, to help treat testicular cancer. Josh fought his cancer with 19 difficult rounds of chemotherapy along with three surgeries. Read on to learn more about Josh and Alia and their sweet love story.
