After multiple attempts by our mothers to get us to meet since 2013, we finally met at Frances's aunt's wedding in 2019. We went out a few times but decided to really give it a shot in January of 2022.
While on a trip to the Bahamas we were all going out to the beach to take a big group picture but Patrick had something else planned. As we were all lining up Patrick was closer to the water so I walked down to him. He yelled to his niece, Avery, to come show me what she found. She came running over with the ring and he asked me to marry him! I said "YES!" Then we did take our big group picture and the first picture with my fiance :) We're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with y'all!!
