This story is one to tell our children in the future!! It was a beautiful summer day, June 13th, 2009 ... I was attending the wedding of my cousin Nicole. I didn't have a date at the time so I brought my best friend Lauren. As the groomsmen were walking down the aisle Lauren, my sister Amber and I were commenting like single girls at a wedding do about which ones were cute. I spotted the Best Man right away and though he was adorable. So at the reception after a few drinks (lol) and asking around about the cute Best Man (who I found out was the grooms brother) I saw my opportunity to talk to him when I saw him at the bar getting a drink. So Lauren and I walked over and I wish I could remember the whole conversation but he did tell me I had nice feet and shoes lol. After a lot of dancing we spent the end of the evening talking outside. He had just gotten back from Iraq and was ending is 10 years in the Army. We exchanged numbers and I waited patiently for days for him to call. When he finally did we set up a dinner date and the rest is history. I remember him being so open and honest on our first date that I knew instantly this was the man I would marry!! On a cute side note I later found out that my cousin Nicole met her husband Michael (Patrick's brother) at a wedding ... The wedding they met at was for Patrick & Michael's sister!! So it seems like a tradition in my future husbands family to meet your wife at a family member's wedding!! So, both Patrick and I have a single sister so we are hoping they meet someone at our wedding and keep the tradition alive!!
