“I am going to wear a white dress and marry the best man in the world!” – Our beautiful bride Divya’s message to her mother, after two years of dating her fiance Patrick. In a beautiful blend of Christian and Indian tradition, our lovebirds wed this summer at the Serrano Country Club.

The speeches from friends and family, had Divya and Patrick in happy tears and lots of laughs.

Divya’s dad, nicknamed “Pockets”, joked about how his daughter was truly a well-rounded woman – having lived all over the U.S. and in India throughout her childhood. Her mother said she would never forget the time Divya told her kindergarten boyfriend that she “won’t even think about marriage until graduating college.”

Well, it looks like Patrick married quite the intelligent (and determined) lady!
