Cherie Watkins is a woman who radiates love. Cherie is battling cancer, but despite her diagnosis, Cherie is guaranteed to make you smile. Cherie’s Dream has been to go to the beach and see the dolphins. Unfortunately, Cherie’s health does not allow her to travel, so the Dreamweaver team and her family decided to bring the beach to her!  

Cherie’s family and the Dreamweaver team quickly began preparations to make Cherie’s Luau Dream come true. It wouldn’t be a true luau without music, drinks, and family. While Cherie’s family was busy gathering her friends and family members, the Dreamweaver team was busy pampering Cherie for her big day. Our good friend, Evelynn, at Von Maur, personally shopped for three beautiful outfits for Cherie to try on. From the three, Cherie picked out her beautiful new outfit. When Cherie put on her new dress, shoes, and jewelry, she radiated beauty! The pampering didn’t end there, as Omaha Mobile Nails treated Cherie to a manicure and pedicure, and Felicia Russell provided Cherie with a beautiful new hair style! 

When it came time for her Dream, Cherie, beautifully attired, and her family members rode to their destination in a Luxury SUV, provided by VIP Limo. Her family kicked off the fun with music and disco lights! Cherie was welcomed to her luau, which was beautifully decorated with teal tables, sand and seashell centerpieces, grass skirts, palm trees and much more! Cherie enjoyed a wonderful meal of her favorite foods, including chicken, ribs, cake, and banana pudding.  

To capture the true feel of a luau, party guests sported flower leis and drank out of coconut and pineapple cups, topped with umbrella straws. While enjoying her luau, and sporting her new outfit, Amber Lihs Photography captured stunning family pictures for Cherie and her family to enjoy and relive this magical gathering. The Dreamweaver team thanks everyone who played a part in making Cherie’s luau Dream a reality.
