Obsessed with this gorgeous couple and all the special moments from their Bowery Hotel wedding celebration! Patti and Lu are the definition of a modern partnership and it makes me so happy that their relationship goes so deep and their wedding represents more than just a one day party but their lifelong commitment to each other. As always, I love to let my couples describe their relationship so here are a few words from Patti:
“Lu and I met during college in November 2007 at a "Friendsgiving" that our maid of honor, Amanda, was hosting in Brooklyn for those who weren't going home for Thanksgiving. We had pretty instant chemistry and went on a date a few days later and have been together ever since :) I think what is one of the most important things after being together for almost 11 years is that we still really like each other and at the very base of it all, are still best friends at the core. We've gone through ups and downs like every other couple, but at the end of each day, we choose each other. We've grown up together through alot of life events (studying abroad apart, graduating college, first jobs, law school, etc) and thus understand the importance of partnership.
Lu will joke that his favorite thing about me is my (bad) singing and my favorite thing about him is his insane productivity (he designed all the invites, stds, menus, etc by himself because he enjoys design as a hobby even though he's a lawyer by trade) but ultimately I think that we both like making each other laugh and there's a sense of comfort when we're close together where our anxiety fades and we just know 'everything will be OK' if we got each other. We're so integrated in each other's lives at this point, that it feels like Lu is as part of me as is my arm or leg. It's a wonderful feeling to have such a deep friendship and partnership with someone :)”Read More
