Patrick proposed to Dawn with an heirloom ring that belonged to his mother. “My mom passed away some years back, and I was able to use her ring to give to my future wife. The best part is that the ring fit so perfectly. I feel like it was my mom’s way of telling me that Dawn was the right one for me,” reminisced Patrick.Dawn and Patrick fell in love with Italy after traveling to this destination two years prior to their wedding. “There was something magical about the city, and we thought how wonderful it would be to [have our wedding] there with our closest family and friends,” shared Dawn. With breathtaking coastal views and rolling hills amid a small picturesque locale, the ceremony took place on the hotel’s beautiful terrace overlooking Positano.During their intimate nuptials, the couple incorporated an Italian tradition in which a scarf was placed around their hands at the end of their union.The Proposal: Patrick proposed in May of 2011 in my kitchen with chocolate-covered strawberries. I was very excited about the proposal as well as the strawberries. I knew he was the one about two years in, once I saw he would deal with me exactly how I was and he appreciated me for me.
Bride’s favorite memory of the day: holding hands with my husband at the alter and looking into his eyes thinking to myself how lucky I am that I get to be with him for the rest of my life.
Groom’s favorite memory of the day: When I first seen my wife walking down the steps for the first time in her wedding dress. It was like out of a movie how beautiful she looked.
