Emily + Her Princeatrick
A real life fairy tale is what we bring you today from our gorgeous Poffie Bride, Emily, and her husband Patrick. The pair married just married on New Years Eve at the Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte, exactly one year to the date that they got engaged. Patrick popped they big question on NYE of 2015 with Emily surrounded by all of their loved ones, but let’s rewind a little because we hope you’re ready for the real sweet stuff!
Both actors from Charlotte, they both have signature Carolina loves… her vice you ask? Cheerwine of course, while Patrick would be his love for the Tar Heels. Emily was a struggling single mom who was set up on a blind date with Patrick, an acting teacher with a wonderful heart and amazing smile! Now, two and a half years and one amazing wedding later, he is an wonderful dad to her beautiful daughter and the man that she prayed for, “he is our prayers come to life. We share an amazing 3 year old daughter, a love of all things Shakespeare and Carolina blue!!!” Are your hearts melting yet?!
A picture-perfect wedding day, full of excitement, celebration, and lots of (happy) tears! While their ultimate dream of finding the perfect soulmate was already taken care of, the two worked together to build a team of amazing vendors who worked collectively to ensure the couples’ dreams became reality for their wedding day.
As for advice for our future brides… we’ll leave that to Emily, “Pick a dress that you feel beautiful in, pick music that makes you want to dance the night away, and when the day comes just find peace and serenity in his eyes down that aisle. Look around you and soak in every second of that day, without being stressed about the small details that may not go according to plan. Because the ultimate plan, God’s plan to place him in your life, has already come to true. And really that’s all that matters.” And for the fellas she says “Just say yes to whatever she wants…..she’s dreamed about this wedding a lot longer than you have, I promise. She dreamed about you too of course, but also flowers and stationary in all the stuff you know nothing about. Lol…. just kidding…. but REALLY!”
Now if that story did not leave you with chill bumps… *swoon*
