Pachette and Antonio’s Love Story

You’d never expect to meet the love of your life while shopping at the mall, but that’s exactly what happened when Pachette and Antonio crossed paths at Crabtree Valley Mall. The pair had a spark and knew there was something special between them. Antonio proposed while the couple visited Pachette’s family in the Outer Banks while at dinner (instead of the beach) – due to uncooperative weather. But with bright skies the following day, the couple spent their first day of engagement soaking in the sun on the beach.

The rich color paired beautifully with the cobalt blue suit that the groom wore. All the colors of the wedding party were used elsewhere in the wedding decor to tie the entire look together for this Barclay Villa wedding.
