Amy & Pat has known each other for 13 years. They met in highschool but it wasn’t until they graduated from college & started with their own careers that they started to notice one another. Until their friendship turned to a lifetime of love & commitment. The bride to be sums up this engagement session as a representation of marrying her best friend. Isn’t that so romantic? I always find it sweet when we feature couples like them. Marriage is definitely a lifetime commitment & there is really no one better to spend it with than with your best friend. We truly appreciated this wonderful photo set shared by Genesa Richards Photography.
We have been best friends for the past 13 years. We met in high school. Our friends and families, for years, wondering why we weren’t dating! My fiancé always made jokes that I would marry him- me not thinking too much into it at the time. After graduating from college and starting our careers we got even closer and as fate would have our friendship quickly faded into an even deeper bond.
We are ultimate best friends. I could be anywhere doing anything with him and we would find something to laugh about.
Enjoy every moment because it is over fast!
We love parties! All of our friends are friends with one another and our NYE wedding needed a “party” twist to it. We thought Great Gatsby (feathers, diamonds, pearls) was perfect!
Get the big things done first! Let yourself enjoy even the little (annoying) things. Don’t settle!
What were some challenges you faced planning your wedding & what would you have done differently to avoid them?
We live in Dallas and are planning out wedding in Seattle. This was a challenge. Next time, I would have let my family and friends help with more of the planning. They were more than willing to!
Liquor. We can bring our own to the venue.
Can you share some tips or tricks that you learned along the way leading up to the wedding or after?
