Over 200 guests gathered for Erin and Patrick’s winter-chic wedding the week before Christmas. They were married at First Presbyterian Church of Howard County and held their reception at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center. Erin, Pat and Erin’s parents were all so involved in every detail of the planning. I loved being part of the process as their family come together to plan this wonderful event – even when it was clear the boys would maybe rather be watching football at times. My favorite part of the evening was the toasts, given by the best man and maid of honor, both friends of the bride and groom since childhood. It was so touching to hear of the growth of their friendships over so many years. Best of luck and many happy years together to Erin & Patrick!
