Abby and Patrick are one of our ATP Wedding Couples, married in 2017. These two are simply adorable, loving, hilarious and quite honestly -- very hard working. Abby is a school counselor and is very dedicated to her students. Patrick is a lawyer that runs a family law firm, which takes up a lot of his time. When they decided it was time to start a new chapter in their lives, they knew it would be a big shift in their relationship and their worlds, but they were ready.
Abby says, "Having a baby, especially a baby girl, has given me a new perspective on what it means to have balance and what kind of mother I want to be. Am I someone Ellie will be proud of? How are my work decisions impacting her life? Do I have enough time to create memories of our family? I have a very emotionally driven job and I want and need to be emotionally available for this little girl. I want Ellie to look back and feel that she was always a factor in every decision. It’s been an interesting ride, but I wouldn’t change it for anything."
