Andrea and Patrick both swiped right and Patrick broke the ice by asking Andrea about what South American country she had previously lived in. To Patrick’s surprise, Andrea said she lived in Chile because that is where her mom’s side of the family is from. To Andrea's surprise, Patrick replied and said his father’s side is from Chile and his mom’s side is from New York. Andrea quickly responded with, “what would you say if I told you my dad’s side is from New York?”. Patrick replied with, “I’d say we need to meet up and discuss this ASAP”. (Don’t worry, they are not related) Andrea and Patrick met for drinks at a local Mexican restaurant in Boston’s Seaport on January 16th of 2020 and ended up talking for over 4 hours. This was real. Andrea was leaving for a week-long vacation to Chile that weekend but they were both eager to get another date in the books. Just two days after Andrea returned from her trip, they met up for dinner and she surprised Patrick with his favorite candy from Chile…he considered proposing right there. Their relationship continued to flourish and was truly solidified after a months-long quarantine together. Over the past three years, they have grown in their relationship and built the foundation of a beautiful life together. On Saturday, August 13 on the island of Nantucket, Patrick pulled off the surprise proposal of a lifetime and the rest of is history. Patrick and Andrea are both thrilled to be celebrating their special day surrounded by the most important people in their lives!
