Due to the ongoing pandemic we have decided to postpone our wedding celebration. We will be in touch with updated arrangements. Stay safe and healthy! We will be having an intimate ceremony with our immediate families at the end of August. Please check back for pictures of our special day. We cannot wait to celebrate with you in person! How We Met- Patrick and I met the old fashion way- by swiping right! Turns out we both went to college at Sonoma State and graduated the same year but never knew each other. Six years later, we both resulted to signing up for The League, a dating website, and thank goodness we did!! After meeting for drinks we knew right away that this was something special. One year later we were asked to move Chicago for Patrick's new job opportunity. We have now been here for two years and we are really enjoying the city. We love having visitors if you are ever in the mood for some deep dish! The Proposal- During a visit back home last May, Patrick planned the perfect surprise proposal! After a long day at the salon, I arrived back to my parents home and was immediately greeted by our dog Calie running down the driveway. I quickly noticed she had something large hanging around her neck. The closer she got I realized what was happening! Patrick met me in the middle of the driveway with Calie and the ring box and got down on one knee, and I of course said YES!! We celebrated that night with my family and woke up the next morning to fly to Hawaii and meet Patrick's family to celebrate. We were very lucky to be able to share and celebrate our special time with both of our families. The Wedding- I fell in love with the Palm Springs area after taking several trips there while nannying. The warm weather and tropical vibes are hard to beat! After Patrick's first trip this last August he also fell in love, saying "when you get off the plane it immediately feels like you are on vacation". The hundreds of immaculate golf courses also may have swayed his view! We are looking forward to a weekend filled with celebration, family and friends! We can't wait to make it official!!
