Private Home: Bay Shore, NY: Emily & Patrick's Wedding

According to Emily’s family, she’s always been a pretty private person. She’s not overly showy with her emotions, she tends to keep things to herself. So when she first started dating Patrick, they didn’t know much about him. He was a mystery man to them for some time, until they finally met him. It was then, that they saw that even if Emily didn’t say out loud what she was feeling, the way she looked at Patrick gave it all away. She was crazy about him.

It turns out, that sense of privacy is something that Emily and Patrick have in common. Pat's sister, Kathleen, says that she has never seen him smile quite like he did on his wedding day. It was those moments, moments that happened all day - when Emily and Pat let their friends and family see just how much they love each other and how sincerely happy they make one another - that made their day so special. Because as Emily’s sister Annie said in her toast, this wedding day was a very public celebration for a very private couple. And their friends and family were delighted to see Emily and Pat’s love for one another with their very own eyes.
