Words can not express how special this wedding was to me and I can not tell you how many times I had to fight back tears (of joy) as I watched Brittany and Patrick say their vows to one another. I have known Brittany since she was in high school. Her testimony is absolutely amazing and I have always felt so blessed to have her in my life. I’ll never forget the first time she told me about this amazing guy named Patrick. She was home from college and we had gotten together for a Starbucks and she was smiling from ear to ear as she told me all about him. Then, one day, I finally got to meet Patrick and it made perfect sense why this guy had “stolen” Brittany’s heart. Patrick is such a sweet, fun and handsome guy. He is full of laughter and joy but most importantly – he loves Jesus with all his heart. So, needless to say – put these two wonderful and beautiful people together and you have one truly amazing couple! Patrick is Romanian and the wedding ceremony took place at his church in Chicago. The service was so perfect and I personally loved having a little peek into the beautiful Romanian culture. There was so much lovely music throughout the ceremony from a full choir to a brass band. Patrick even surprised Brittany with a song. (I definitely needed a tissue at that point.) After the reception, we went out with the bridal party to take some photos and ended the day with a quick stop at Starbucks. It was perfect! Congrats you two! Excited to see what God has in store for your future.
