Jenna and Patrick's love story began on St. Patrick's Day in 2016, when they met and pretended to flirt to make another girl jealous. They lost touch, but fate brought them back together a few months later at a Sunday Funday at The Ivy.
Patrick knew immediately that Jenna was special and asked her on a date. As they spent more time together, they fell in love with each other's kind and ambitious personalities and how they complement each other.
Jenna knew that Patrick was the one for her when he supported her through a difficult time, and Patrick knew Jenna was the one when she fit in with his friends and family.
It was a beautiful day in March when Patrick planned the proposal for Jenna that would turn into the most memorable day of their lives. They went for drinks and dinner at a rooftop in Buckhead, and then Patrick led Jenna to a park where he had set up a picnic.
As they walked near the lake, Jenna saw a setup that looked like a wedding, and when the saxophonist Patrick hired started playing their song, she realized what was happening.
Patrick got down on one knee and proposed, and the happy couple enjoyed a surprise dinner with their parents and loved ones who had flown in to celebrate.
As Jenna looks forward to getting married and spending time with her family and friends, Patrick is eager to watch Jenna walk down the aisle.
Here are my favorites from their fall wedding at the Crystal Tea Room.

The Ceremony at The Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul
The Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul functions as the mother church of the Philadelphia Catholic Archdiocese. In contrast to being one of the largest Catholic churches in the United States, this magnificent church is ideal for your intimate wedding and can accommodate more than 2,000 guests.
The Crystal Tea Room Wedding Reception
Located in Philadelphia's historic Wanamaker building, the Crystal Tea Room is one of the largest event spaces in the city.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!
"Wow where to begin! Ralph was our photographer last year for our October wedding, from the first phone conversation I had with him I knew a made the right choice. I could not have been happier with how my pictures turned out as well as with the experience my husband and I had with Ralph and his entire team.
Throughout the entire process Ralph took the time to make sure everything went perfectly even when it didn't. Ralph was professional, attentive, and patient to every email, text, phone call and question, including the ones asking him to resend our photos almost a year post wedding because it slipped my mind to download them. Can't wait to work with him and his team over and over again for year to come!"
