Patrick + Ashley | Married - Chicago Fine Art Wedding Photography
Patrick & Ashley first met on St. Patrick’s Day 2007 when they were both invited to meet up with a mutual friend. They’ve been together every since!
On July 31, 2012 Ashley received a call from Patrick to take a plane ride that evening (oh yeah, Patrick flies planes)! Ashley was excited, but didn’t rush, since she thought it was just a typical date night. When she arrived, she noticed that Patrick was acting a bit antsy, but still didn’t think a proposal was on its way. It wasn’t until they were flying around Lake Geneva, WI at sunset that Ashley started to think to herself, “this could be it!” After flying around a bit more, Ashley was a little disappointed when they started to head back. Patrick, however, had a plan.
As they were heading back, Patrick told Ashley that they needed to make an "emergency" landing because the oil pressure was low. Not knowing this was part of Patrick’s plan, Ashley started to freak out a bit on the inside. Patrick quickly landed and asked Ashley to get his flight bag. While getting Patrick’s flight bag, Ashley felt a tap on her shoulder. This was it! She turned around to see Patrick on one knee!
Ashley and Patrick’s wedding day was one of joy and love shared with family and friends.
Congratulations! And thank you for letting us share in your special day!
