Peyton & Patience Wedding Details Update
This week we’ve got some cute photos to share with you accompanying Peyton and Patience on their wedding planning journey, including the ring! If you are just joining us, please click to see WEEK ONE, WEEK TWO and WEEK THREE details. What an exciting week for Peyton and Patience! How many of you watched the NBA Draft last Thursday night? Peyton was selected by the Detroit Pistons and had this to say right afterwards, "Being drafted to Detroit was like a dream come true. Since I was little, I've dreamed of that day. I'm just so excited to start my NBA career." Patience said, "I am so excited that Peyton's dream of playing professional basketball has come true! He has prayed for this for a long time and we are both truly blessed to be living out his dream."
Before the NBA Draft, Peyton was in town to check-off a couple of Wedding To-Do’s with Patience. First stop was Sam Meyers. We can now announce the "official tuxedo" of the wedding will be from Sam Meyers. They are outfitting Peyton, the groomsmen and both dads, along with the ring bearer.
Peyton said, "I chose Sam Meyers because they had a large selection to choose from and they were very friendly. I chose a modern style tux for myself and my groomsmen. I felt comfortable in what I was wearing, and liked the way I looked." You will have to wait and see what they picked out in our Kentucky Bride Magazine layout from the wedding! The dress and the tux are top secret!
Patience had a beautiful shower this past weekend. The shower was held by Lauren Helms and Leigh McCroskey, the Maids of Honor, at the home of Candy and Tony Hammond in Louisville. They even had some special cookies with photos from their engagement photo session with Todd Pellowe. And, they were delicious!
Sweet Surrender of Louisville is their official cake baker. Jessica Haskell, the owner, says that Peyton and Patience have requested weekly tastings! “We are absolutely honored to work with them. My entire staff is huge U of L basketball fans.” “Peyton and Patience are incredibly sweet, and great to work with,” said Jessica. They have chosen caramel pound cake, with strawberry and lemon layers also … yummy! This cake will be spectacular, and it’s adorned with crystal banding which is just the perfect touch. This wedding will definitely have bling touches! Speaking of bling, many of you have asked about Patience’s engagement ring. Here’s a couple of photos:
Beautiful! You did good, Peyton!
