What do you get when you cross two civil engineers? A love story built to stand the test of time! 


Patrick and Kate met in class while studying civil engineering. Slowly the two became friends and then Patrick got Kate’s number by telling her that he needed it to get her help on the homework. They grew their friendship through study dates for about three months until they officially started dating! Patrick told Kate that they were going out on a date, while in the car Patrick kept taking all of the wrong turns. They ended up next to Kate’s favorite trees in Auburn and Patrick stopped the car. He led Kate to the spot that he decorated with twinkle lights and pictures of them. He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! Kate was speechless but was eventually able to let out a “Yes! Of course!”. Little did Kate know this was not the last surprise that Patrick had for her that night! They returned to her house where all of her family and friends were waiting for them to celebrate the good news!


Kate and Patrick describe their wedding as the best party that they had ever been to! Planning the perfect party begins with picking out the perfect place. Ever since Kate was a little girl she knew that she wanted to get married at her childhood home. The beautiful farm with never-ending trees and green pastures was a dream come true for the couple. The bridesmaids wore light blue dresses and the groomsmen wore blue suits with fun socks to complement the greens and browns of the landscape. Kate and Patrick had many personal handmade details throughout their wedding. The couple exchanged love letters to each other before the ceremony. The driftwood arbor that Patrick and Kate got married under were handmade by them. They poured a lot of hard work into it and it captured their spirit perfectly. Kate had been picking up driftwood off the beach for years and was so excited to finally get to use it on her arbor and in the centerpieces. When Kate was younger she had started a journal to give to her future husband and was ecstatic to finally give it to Patrick on their wedding day!


Kate and Patrick advise other couples that are planning their weddings to choose their photographer wisely! You will be spending lots of time with them on your wedding day, so you need to make sure that it is someone that has the same vision as you!
