Patty loves to travel.
Perpetually late, unless it is to an airport. Unforgivably geographically challenged. (She will miserably fail a U.S. map test. Actually, scratch that, she'll fail any map test.)
Mark loves to eat.
Plays golf to unwind. And loved watching his Cubs win the World Series (finally!). Will make ridiculous reservations far in advance to share the experience with good people. (Oh, wait...that's food related again.)
They both love to make each other laugh. And that they do in spades! When you put the two of them together, get ready to laugh out loud (or is it LOL).
Despite having multiple mutual friends, they actually met on a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel. Mark joined the app not particularly looking for anyone or anything for that matter, but because he thought it was so absurd that three Korean-American women could sound so unprepared on their time slot on Shark Tank. On the other hand, being young and hip, Patty was always on the app, mainly to keep her married co-workers entertained at 12 o'clock every weekday.
Mark was intrigued by Patty's onesie photo that she had recently uploaded (Thanks Grace & DJ!) and thought "Here's someone who's confident enough in herself!" Patty's former co-worker Sara was looking through the app, and excitedly noticed that some guy was looking for a girl just like Patty. Although Patty couldn't get past his grammatical mistakes on the app, Sara clicked 'Yes'. (Thanks Kavary!)
The rest is history!
We are excited that you are able to join us on our big day.
