Our love story started in Colorado the summer of 2017. Patrick was on tour with his band, Dr. Joe, from Austin, TX. Grace was at the show because Joe happened to be her friend from dental school. After the show, some flirtatious banter was exchanged, footsie was played over a plate of nachos, and our connection was almost instant. The after party continued at the infamous “round house” on Horsetooth Reservoir where we danced until the sun came up. We continued our relationship long distance for about a year and a half. After thousands of miles traveled and many adventures along the way, Patrick finally made the move to Denver. We quickly realized we were kindred spirits and wanted to spend forever together. While back in San Antonio visiting family and friends, Patrick proposed to Grace and she of course said yes!! 

We had originally planned a 2021 New Year’s wedding with 250+ people, but COVID-19 had different plans for us. In order to keep our loved ones safe, we decided we would postpone the big celebration until next year. We asked our original venue in Austin if we could postpone until New Year’s of 2022, but that weekend was already booked as was almost every other Friday/Saturday in 2021. So instead we decided to pick another date that had significance to us. Patrick’s parents’ 49th wedding anniversary happened to be September 12, 2020 which means it will be their 50th wedding anniversary in 2021. With less than a month to plan, we decided to get married with twenty five immediate family and close friends in Grace’s brother’s beautiful backyard in Golden. We hope to celebrate our 1 year and Patrick’s parents’ 50th anniversary next year in Austin!

We were so incredibly lucky that Justyna was free to photograph our special day on such short notice! Words do not even begin to describe what a wonderful day it was and Justyna captured it.
