Tropical Bliss: Patricia & Matthew in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Patricia Cecilia Arguello and Matthew William Schatz were introduced by mutual friends during a group outing in April of 2012. They immediately knew they had something special together — in fact, they began dating the very next day! That same year, they went on a week-long getaway to Grand Cayman, where they fell in love with the small Caribbean island and the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman resort's impeccable hospitality. Fast-forward to December of 2013, when Matt proposed during a magical trip to Thailand: on their first night in Koh Samui, he dropped down to one knee in their villa and presented her with a sparkling ring. "We both thought it would be meaningful to go back to Grand Cayman to exchange our vows," Patricia shares.

True to tradition, Matt and Patricia prepared for the wedding day apart from one another. The bride invited her female friends and relatives into her suite for champagne and light nibbles while getting beautified. Pasquale Caselle styled their hair, and Stefani Ford Makeup did their makeup.
