Alison + Pat met through friends while studying accounting at University of Illinois. It was not love at first site, but apparently the handsome Pat made quite an impression on Alison. Years later she asked a friend about Pat and the rest is history. Alison is beautiful, classy, sweet and fun. If that wasn’t enough, she loves sports! A beautiful girl who loves sports – how could Pat resist? The best man was right when he said in his toast to Pat, “You got yourself a keeper.” Just watching them you can tell how much fun they have together. Pat looks at Alison like a smitten school boy and Alison flashes her mega-watt smile and the world exists only for the two of them.
They now live in Denver, but decided to get married in Chicago at the Amour House at Lake Forest Academy. For their wedding, they hopped in a car with their fur baby, Stokley, and drove to Chicago. As a fellow Bernese Mountain Dog owner, I was hoping the doggie would make an appearance at the wedding, but he was chilling out at the hotel nearby. After the wedding, the giddy newlyweds headed to Italy for a romantic honeymoon in Positano.
