Their Love Story

Dallas Proposal Ideas Patrick - 5

Patrick remembers the exact date of the day they first met two and a half years ago: June 30, 2013. They were attending a mutual friend’s social gathering at Bar Louie in downtown Fort Worth.

Patrick was immediately noticed her captivating blue eyes, and struck up an easy conversation. Kristen was intrigued by his wit and confidence. They noticed an immediate connection, and Patrick asked her out on a date.

Life has an interesting way of giving you what you need right when you stop searching for it! Both Patrick and Kristen had just about given up on love when they met and fell for each other. On their second date, she showed a genuine interest in Patrick and laughed at his jokes, and he just knew he had found The One!
