How We Met

Morgan and I (Patricia) worked for the same accounting firm after college and met at the office Christmas party in 2016. We started dating the following year.

The Proposal

I was ready for my parents to pick me up for an early birthday lunch. I thought Morgan was deer hunting in Wilcox County, but he surprised me at my house and proposed there. My parents had a celebration at their house after with family and friends.

The Dress

I visited so many stores and could not find a dress that I loved. Lauriston at Ivory & White in Crestline was able to help me track down the perfect one from Antonio Gual.

Favorite Moment

Seeing all of our planning come together after a very difficult year and getting to celebrate our marriage with friends and family. Also, I walked down the aisle to “Edelweiss” played by a string quartet. My grandfather had passed away a few months earlier, and it was his favorite song. I forgot to warn my family that I had chosen it, and it definitely caused some tears when they heard it.

Favorite Details

We were originally supposed to get married at the same church and country club that my mom and grandmother did. I am very sentimental and had always planned to have my wedding just like theirs. COVID ended up changing every one of our original plans, and we ended up getting married at Barber Motorsports Park. I never thought I would get married at a racetrack, but they were incredible to work with and everything turned out beautifully. The change in plans really made us appreciate that our wedding was not about a location but about celebrating our marriage with loved ones. What did go was planned was wearing my great aunt’s antique veil that all of the women in my family have worn at their own weddings.
