New Yorkers Andrea and Patrick had a beautiful coastal Maine wedding on Peaks Island with 100 of their closest friends and family. They chose to have a sweet first look before the ceremony, and then zip around the island with Whitney and Sharon for portraits, leaving them plenty of time for cocktails and easing into their dinner and dancing reception once pronounced husband and wife.
How they met, in Andrea's words:
As one of our friends says, we met at a June 2005 wedding that I wasn't at. Two of my friends met Patrick at a wedding and were so smitten by him that while the guy grilled Patrick about his dating life, the girl snuck away to call me and ask permission to give Patrick my phone number. A quick phone call resulted in a blind date, and we've been together ever since.
In October 2009, I unexpectedly switched jobs and started working for BRIDES Magazine. Two weeks later, Patrick proposed - so it's been a crazy and fun-filled wedding year. Although we live in New York City, we can't imagine a more perfect place than Maine for our wedding day. I have ties to Maine (my father's family is originally from the Portland area, and I went to Colby College), but Patrick is from Minnesota and first time up was when we were scoping out wedding venues. We instantly fell in love with Peaks Island and can't wait to share a true New England experience with friends and family who will be flying in all over the country (and some from overseas)!

Congratulations, Andrea and Patrick! Thank you so much for choosing to work with emilie inc. and have a blast in Vietnam!!
