Patrick and Jennifer planned a trip to Savannah, Georgia for their 3rd anniversary. “We explored the city, walked around and rode bikes. Later in the evening, Patrick surprised me with a horse-drawn carriage ride around town. The carriage stopped at one of the many squares in the city, and we got out for a closer look and that is when Patrick proposed. We returned to our carriage and went for a celebratory dinner,” shared Jennifer.
125 guests were in attendance for their wedding ceremony, including six bridesmaids, six groomsmen, and two ushers at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church. “Seeing each other at the church for the first time was a great moment.”
The couple chose a color palette of navy blue and lilac for their decor for their reception, held at Stone Manor Country Club. The bride incorporated her something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue into her bouquet, including pins from her grandfather’s Army uniform, her grandmother’s baby ring, a blue rosary made by her mother, and a pin from the groom’s grandmother.
“We tried to make our day classic and fun for our guests. We had a photo booth that lots of people used and we danced all night! We also learned we have some brave friends willing to try the Dirty Dancing lift when ‘I’ve Had the Time of My Life’ was played. We surprised our guests with a food truck serving tater tots for a late night snack.”
Patrick is a scientist working in pharmaceutical development. Jennifer is a Clinical Project Manager and works on clinical trials for emerging diseases. They currently reside in Dickerson, Maryland.
