We first met Melanie during a product shoot for her families business, Montchevrés. She would always talk about Pat and how happy they were together! It was so fun to finally meet him. Melanie and Pat are the cutest!! Melanie could not stop giggling. We nicknamed their shoot gigglegigglexoxox. Heehee! We had an absolute blast shooting their photos.
Melanie and Pat have a lot of history with each other. They met their freshman year in college. Melanie first found out about Pat when his friend let her know how obsessed he was with her. She was a little freaked out and embarrassed because she had no idea who he was! She would go to class every day wondering who had the crush on her. To her surprise, he turned out to be super cute and totally normal. Not a creeper at all! Haha! For some reason she played hard to get. They ended up becoming good friends. Everyone knew they would end up together. Pat was always in love with her. They went to lunch with Melanie’s grandma. She told her in French to make it happen! They finally decided to officially start dating. Pat, of course, told her how much he loved her.
Pat asked Melanie to marry him in Boston. Melanie was already there visiting and had no idea Pat was going to surprise her. The whole family was in on it. Melanie, of course, was thrilled!
