Michael's brother had originally set these two up on a blind date, but Patricia turned down the offer. The story might have ended then and there, but as fate would have it they ended up meeting at an event a few weeks later and sparks flew instantly. After five years together, Michael decided it was time to propose and he knew he wanted to do it at Disneyland. He planned the ultimate surprise proposal incorporating Tower of Terror with the help of some Cast Members and his friends.
A Disney's Fairy Tale Wedding felt inevitable at that point (luckily, Patricia had been planning one since she was 16). The couple exchanged vows at Parkview Terrace at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and danced the night away (on a custom dance floor!) at their reception at Sleeping Beauty Pavilion. They chose a beautiful purple color scheme and Patricia looked absolutely radiant in her wedding gown Their advice for future couples? "Do whatever it takes to get a good photographer!" It took a huge weight off their shoulders once they found the right match, and just look at the gorgeous results.
