We said I do in a small ceremony in August 2020 and now we are so happy to say we are finally ready to celebrate our marriage with all of you! Since then we have welcomed our daughter Navy and we are looking forward to all of you meeting her during the festivities. 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 lived there for three years and we really enjoyed the city. We moved back to the Bay Area last year and it’s been so great to be back with family and friends! 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 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 hope you can join us!
