Real Wedding: Kristen & Patrick

Sparks flew when a co-worker set up USD grad Kristen Mikus with New York native Patrick Schlicht on a blind-date. Both worked as pharmaceutical sales reps when they first met. “I was nervous,” Kristen admitted, “so I cancelled the first date. A few weeks later I ran into one of Patrick’s co-workers in an office. Our friend talked to Patrick and told him to ask me out again… and the rest is history!”. We fell in love with the purple and gold details and amazing photography by Vallentyne Photography.
