This wedding at the Greysolon Moorish Room in Duluth was the perfect ending to the first chapter in the story of Patrick and Haley. Their modern fairy-tale began in January of 2014 when they met while working at the Minneapolis Tattoo Convention. Their booths happened to be right next to each other and a friendship quickly formed. That evening, while walking to a local bar for drinks, Patrick saved Haley from falling on the icy sidewalk, and at that moment she knew she had met someone special.
Over the next few months, they kept in touch by phone and text messaging, finding that they had many interests in common with each other. Other relationships had fizzled out, and finally Patrick called to ask Haley for a date. Sparks flew that evening, and soon they were spending every weekend together. Several months later they moved in together, and Haley had officially found her knight in shining tattoos!
Patrick’s proposal added a sweet and creative touch to the tale. At a family Easter egg hunt, he hid a ring in a very special golden egg and had Haley’s mom hide it in the yard among the others. Everyone was told not to touch that egg. When Haley finally went to open it, Patrick yelled “Will you marry me?”, and, of course, she said “Yes!”.
Their romantic wedding at the beautiful Moorish Room was a wonderful time shared with their closest family and friends. Haley was a vision in her gorgeous white gown and glowed with sheer happiness. Patrick wore black and red and was particularly dapper in his top hat and boutonniere of red roses. The unique creativity of the couple was clearly evident in their stylish celebration, and I love how that shows in the photos of their big day.
I had a wonderful time with Haley and Patrick at their wedding. I wish them every happiness as they begin the next chapter in the story of their lives together.
