Our Story

How We Met

We met from a mutual friend. Joe is originally from York, PA and had moved here about 6 years ago. He bought an old farmhouse in Port Trevorton, PA. Since going to the sale barn in Middleburg, PA, he met someone he now considers a great friend Josh Spickler and then got to know his wife Megan. Chelsey has been friends with Megan for years and had done Josh and Megan’s engagement and wedding pictures. Megan had told each of us about eachother, and we had finally started talking November 2021 and decided to meet up. First date was at DQ in Selinsgrove where we still go on random “first date” dates. Ever since we met, Joe has had a Cardinal knock at his laundry room window, always in the tree around the house and always making his appearance. Chelsey swears this is her father saying “Joe is the one”. We both believe we were brought together by some angel above and so thankful for one another. Currently renovating the old farmhouse in Port Trevorton for another blessing on the way, baby boy Patterson! Many miracles and blessings along the way with this wedding!

The Proposal

We were supposed to go do pictures with Joe and his sister and her kids in October 2022. We had not set a date yet but had been planning on fall pictures for sometime. The few days leading up to what I didn’t know was our engagement, I had found out that his entire family along with my mom were meeting up at this orchard for family pictures so everyone could get them done! October 15th 2022 at Flinchbaugh’s Orchard in York, PA Joe had asked for me to marry him. I absolutely said yes and couldn’t be more thankful for this wonderful man and his entirely family. We cannot wait to share our wedding day with our friends and family, and the new addition to the Patterson family!
