Kate & Patrick | The Most Romantic Love Story Ever
Now, it’s never easy to say, “This is THE most romantic love ever,” because all love is utterly romantic, but this is one story that will absolutely melt your heart. He is a soldier, she is a news reporter. They met when she interviewed him as he was arriving home from Afghanistan; sparks flew, they reconnected a few months later, and the rest is, of course, history.
From Tonya: Kate and Patrick are from Bismarck, ND and were married at the Hilton Naples and Towers in Naples, Florida. Kate is a news reporter and Patrick is currently serving our country in Afghanistan. They first met when she interviewed him for a news story. Kate reported to work at 2:30 in the morning to cover local soldiers returning from overseas. She spotted a family waiting by the barracks for the bus to arrive with their son. As she was interviewing the family, she asked them to point out their son when the bus arrived. She immediately went over and stuck her microphone in his face and asked “What’s it like to be home?” He answered “I’m happy to be home. It’s good to see my family and I can’t wait to get some sleep!” They went their separate ways that night, but met again 6 months later thru mutual friends and the rest is history.
According to Tonya, Patrick is currently serving another tour of duty overseas. From Kate: “While the majority of our marriage has been spent apart, I’ve cherished every single moment! In a few short months, I’ll find myself at the exact same place I first met Patrick Keller but instead of welcoming him home as a reporter, I’ll be kissing and loving on him as his wife.”
