Laura and Patrick

How We Met

It all started on a tennis court 3 years ago in San Francisco. We each joined a co-ed social tennis league and were placed on the same team. After a few tennis dates, Patrick asked me out for drinks at this cute wine bar nearby. We laughed the entire time while quoting the tv show friends and we have been inseparable ever since.

How They Asked

Fast forward to September on a family trip to Hawaii. He had me convinced a proposal wouldn’t happen there due to it being with my whole family. Because of this, the surprise when he was down on one knee was overwhelming. We spent the day snorkeling and watching dolphins play in the water, then I was told we were going to take Christmas card photos on a favorite beach on Kauai. Shipwreck beach has a beautiful cliff overlooking the water so we all hiked up there.

Patrick pulled me away from everyone under the guise of looking for a turtle. I turned around after not seeing it and he was kneeling with a ring box in hand! It was magical. My parents and younger brother took loads of photos for us and popped some champagne to celebrate. My mom even had Hawaiian wedding leis ready for us to put on. It was a wonderful end to the day!! Now we are planning our wedding day and loving it all!!
