    Who we are:  Sheila Limp, the owner of Wedding Wishes, had wanted to open a shop like this for years. Anytime someone is getting married they have to travel to Louisville or Lexington to find anything. Her goal is to make it easy for them by providing a place where customers can come and find what they need, get exceptional service and not have to travel to do it.
