We are thrilled to have Bailey + Pete help us bid farewell to 2015 and welcome 2016 with a bang! Their wedding will be a New Year’s Eve wedding, and they plan to have quite a celebration! Bailey + Pete met like they do in the movies… But don’t take our word for it!
“Pete started out as friends with my brother and he introduced us on St. Patricks Day 2009 and we remained friends, occasionally going to a concert or hanging out for group events up until the fall of 2010 when he asked me on an official date. Ever since then, in Pete’s words he has ‘swept me off my feet for 4 years’ until he finally proposed on Jan. 23rd 2015. We were on a vacation with Pete’s family in Hawaii when he took me on a beach walk and got down on one knee in view of our rental home where unbeknownst to me, he had invited my family to fly in and surprise me and they had been watching the whole thing.”
Get to know Bailey + Pete a little more!
What activities & hobbies do you and your fiancé enjoy in your free-time?
On a day to day basis, we love to cook and try out new recipes together. We love our wine and movie nights snuggling on the couch. We are also big concert people, we love any live music event. Especially the gorge amphitheater where we get to combine two loves, camping and music. We go camping a lot in the summer with our family and friends enjoying adult beverages, lawn games, camp fires and
maybe some sunshine if we are lucky! Travel is also something that we love and try to do as often as we can, my mother works for the airlines so that makes things much easier.
What is your favorite love song?
His: Whatever It Is by Zach Brown Band or Check Yes or No by George Straight
Hers: Love on Top by Beyonce (I also love all country love songs in general and I Choose You by Sara Bareilles)
In your home, how do you normally choose to eat, drink and be merry?His: I like to hang out with friends and cook some good food, drink a nice cold beer and watch some sports.
Hers: I try to cook for myself or the two of us as often as possible when I have the time and energy using fresh produce (and usually something or other from Trader Joes!) and a nice bottle of wine to wind down from a busy work day. I love to get together with my family and/or friends for some good comfort food, plenty of drinks, games and fun conversation.
What is your favorite TV show?
His: First and foremost, anything to do with sports. Homeland, entourage, survivor, modern family.
Hers: We watch reruns of friends every night as we are falling asleep and we always watch survivor together. My individual favorites are girls, new girl, mindy project, modern family, greys anatomy, the office, bachelor/bachelorette and the voice.
Describe your fiancé in three adjectives:
His: Considerate, classy, gorgeous
Hers: Easy-going, loveable, giving
What would you love to see at your wedding?
His: I want it to feel fun and like a party, I want people to leave and talk for the next 10 years about how Pete and Bailey’s wedding was one of the best ever.
Hers: A fun and beautiful atmosphere that will make everyone comfortable and impress the pants off of them with our style and attention to detail. I want everyone to feel adequately fed and watered and that they want to stay until the wee hours!
How would you describe the “feel” of your wedding?
His: Always something going on/never a dull moment. Lots of music and entertainment/activities with engage people in the fun atmosphere and keep the party going!
