High School Sweethearts Wed at Lakewold Gardens

Patrica and Robert kiss at Lakewold GardensRobert and Patricia were high school sweethearts. Their first date was a Homecoming Dance and  they have been together ever since.  They realized they were too young to wed and decided to wait to marry until Patricia completed her degree at the UW. So it was no surprise when Robert proposed but it was a day long waited for.  

So many scenic spots at Lakewold Gardens to take photos
Dreaming of their wedding day and being a planner, Patricia thought it would be helpful to have some wedding sites in mind when Robert actually popped the question.  In her researching, she came across Lakewold Gardens and when the two were engaged they visited.  Although it was a dreary, rainy day in January and nothing was in bloom, they both knew it was the perfect wedding site for them.  They wanted an outdoor wedding and loved the views of the water.  

Patricia then found the perfect dress for the perfect location.

Isn't this hanger such a sweet idea! 

And the perfect shoes.

Patricia is a lovely bride and she was ready to marry "her best friend."

Soon, the wedding party joined them and it was time to "get married." 

Lakewold Gardens has a fantastic entrance for the bride.   Patricia entered with her father, Mickey.

Patricia's wedding vows were filled with loving emotion

Patricia shared her personal words with Robert:

"You are the love of my life and you make me happier than I could ever imagine and more loved than I even thought possible.  I can't think of my life without you.  We have shared many beautiful moments and I'm excited to begin this journey with you."

Finally, the long awaited moment when they became "husband and wife!"

Robbie and I can not thank you enough for helping us put together such an amazing ceremony.  It truly reflected us and created such a soft, warm and loving atmosphere in a perfect setting.  Thank you for being prepared and giving me a tissue when I had trouble saying my vows:)  You did a phenomenal job and we couldn't be happier.  Thanks again for being a part of our special day!
