Jennifer + Pat :: Indian Engagement in the Desert

If you’ve been around Jenni and Pat, you’d think they had known each all their lives, maybe even childhood as sweethearts. They’re so comfortable in the presence of one another. Their love simply, makes sense.

Both of these darling souls have professions in the medical field. They’re hard-working, caring, and totally adorable. They’ve seen much of the world, and are so excited to best friends and partners for life.

Jennifer’s been able to embrace their heritage in a whole new way with wedding planning! Incorporating traditional Indian garb for the engagement pretty much sent me over the moon in sheer joy. We’re beyond excited to see everything they’ve been working on with Ashley Gain come to life in just a couple months!
