Wedding Wednesday: The McKee Wedding

The McKee Wedding | September 23, 2016 | Photography by: Pictures by Julie

Jon and Patrick first met online, with Patrick asking Jon out for six months before Jon agreed to meet in person. Their date turned into more than friendship, as their time together increased from a weeknight or two to weekends and long days together. Once they found themselves missing the other when they weren't around, they knew their love was growing. For the proposal, Jon and Patrick went for a photo shoot; they were each given a chalkboard to write down what they love about each other. While Patrick wrote that Jon was loving, predictable and kind, Jon wrote "Will you marry me?"

Jon's favorite wedding day memory is their wedding vows because they were able to share their love for each other while surrounded by their closest friends and family. Patrick agrees with the sentiment, but also loved their wedding decorations in their beautiful venue space. Guests received red suckers as wedding favors, added to the wine glasses after Jon's brother shared a childhood story. Their first dance was to Charles Kelly's "The Only One Who Gets Me" which they feel sums up their relationship. Their ceremony also included several Disney movie quotes, and the newlyweds honeymooned at Disney as well.
