Ilana and Patrick are married!! I can’t believe their Desmond Hotel Malvern wedding has come and gone now. These two knew that no matter what happened with Corona, they wanted to be married this year – and I don’t blame them. When you know you’re with the person you’re meant to be, you want forever to start as soon as possible!!
These two met briefly while they were in high school, but didn’t really speak much. However, thanks to the magic of Facebook, they kept in touch virtually. After Facebook told Ilana they had been “friends” for 7 years, she decided to reach out to Patrick. Before they knew it, they were head over heels into their relationship! It didn’t take long for the two to become engaged, though! While sightseeing in Banff, the two reached an overlook at Peyto Lake. They were trying to take a photo but the sun was blinding Ilana. So, she closed her eyes and told Patrick to let her know when he took the photo. Imagine her surprise when she opened them at Patrick was down on one knee asking to marry her!
Now, Ilana and Patrick are MARRIED and I feel so honored that I was able to be with them to celebrate this incredible moment!
Desmond Hotel Malvern Wedding
Ilana and Patrick’s day reminded me what wedding days are truly about: family, friends, and love. Thanks to COVID, everything has been changing rapidly with weddings here in Pennsylvania. Yet, despite all the craziness thrown their way, Ilana and Pat didn’t let ANYTHING stop them from getting married this year! With the people that matter the most by their sides, they had an intimate ceremony to tie the knot. They’ll be having a big celebration next year (and I can’t wait to see them again for that!) but this was such a great celebration of what’s important!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.! I loved every moment of this special day and getting to celebrate and see you both again!!
