Paty and Brandon are a super sweet pair and have a dream love story! They enjoy shopping and food. LOVE food. They both enjoy music, both performing and listening, and Paty really enjoys art.
They knew each other throughout high school and were both in band. In their senior year, Brandon was the drum major and Paty was the dance captain, a match made in heaven. Coincidentally, their band directors were a married team, so we spent a lot of time traveling to middle schools and other trips for recruitment and leadership. We think they played a bit of matchmaker in always having only them two join them! In the fall Brandon began asking Paty out to the movies just about every weekend. In February, after multiple attempts at asking Paty to be his girlfriend, Brandon gave up hope and decided that college was just around the corner, so he would let things be. However, Paty had other plans. She called Brandon randomly just to talk and when he eventually asked her again about dating, she said yes! Although they ended up at separate colleges, they made a long distance relationship work for four years, and finally during graduate school got to live in the same place in Athens, GA.
When Paty was on an externship in San Diego, CA for the end of October, Brandon was planning to fly out and surprise her and propose on the Sunset Cliffs near La Jolla. She found out about his flight so he had to play it off as a Halloween surprise ! She was suspicious but did not know for sure. Brandon hired a car that pulled her up to the Sunset Cliffs and was there waiting with a bench, beautiful flowers, and a ring! They celebrated with a party cruise for Halloween and it was a blast.
Their wedding was a dream! They were inspired by nature and had lots of greenery. Their venue was on a river and was stunning! Their colors were champagne, white, and green. Their families are incredibly sweet and love this union. They enjoyed live music from a guitarist and a special bible reading from the Father of the Bride among other beautiful events during the day.
