Dana and Patrick met at their mega-church, where Patrick is the Minister of music. A place of worship for over 10,000 members, Patrick easily spotted his bride amongst the large crowd. “She would sit in the same seat every Sunday: Right elevated wing, outside aisle seat, 6 rows from the top. She’d always carried herself with poise, yet had an aloofness that somehow became the drawing factor,” Patrick shared.
With his interest peaked, he got a mutual friend to introduce them. They initially communicated through a Facebook message and eventually fell in love.
The couple got married at the Hilton Inn Spa and Garden in Richmond, Virginia. Their stylish wedding party slay’d in all black attire, while the chic couple stunned in a white Rivini sweetheart gown and rich blue tuxedo respectively. It was a beautiful affair for a loving couple.
Their proposal story
Patrick proposed at home! He had an elaborate proposal set up at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. He left me messages in envelopes that morning on where to meet him and what time to leave the house. As I was getting ready to leave, he came through the door. I was confused and asked “I thought I was supposed to be meeting you somewhere in 15 mins?” He was so anxious to give me the ring that he cancelled the plans and surprised me with a very sweet and genuine proposal at home instead.
