On a perfect, fall, October day, Amanda and Patrick woke to the feeling of joy — wedding day joy. Brilliant light poured in from their hotel room windows, and their dearest surrounded them.
Incredibly close with their parents, Patrick and his mother, along with Amanda and her father, each shared a first look. They were emotional, beautiful, and treasured moments that will live in their hearts forever. Amanda and Patrick then had their own sweet, tender, and tearful reveal. Living just down the street from the mildly famous George Rogers Clark Park, and having family ties there, we ventured over for fun wedding party photos, and snuck in a few private moments with Amanda and Patrick.
Their ceremony was held at the beautiful, Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, in Covington, KY. After sharing their vows, they basked in hugs before venturing back to Hotel Covington. There, they celebrated with cake, hilarious and heartfelt toasts, and lots — lots — of dancing, including the greatest Hawaii 5-0 I’ve ever seen.
Kindhearted and genuine, Amanda and Patrick are so deeply, deservedly, loved. I believe this outward affection makes their own connection that much stronger. Their fondness, respect, and devotion for one another is truly breathtaking. When I asked them to pick one word to describe themselves as a couple, they chose tenacious. I couldn’t agree more; this certainly will hold them steadfast in life together.
I’m still in awe of Patrick’s mother’s reaction, and Amanda’s father’s grand expression.
That single tear.
Cheers to endless years, lovebirds!
