Michelle and Patrick held their lovely wedding at El Chorro in Scottsdale, Arizona in April.  In fact, it was held on the same day as the annual Pat's Run, a run in memory and celebration of Pat Tillman's life.  Patrick went to school with Pat Tillman and with the exception of one, has participated in the annual run every year since it's inception.

We loved everything about this wedding, from the gorgeous flowers made up of a combination of white flowers and succulents, to the wedding theme inspired by their travels and experiences in France, to the awesome Cobra that Patrick spent years making, to their two adorable Boston terriers ... everything was amazing.  But we especially love this couple and their family and friends!  They were all so gracious and welcoming and it was a joy to be their wedding photographers!

ARIZONA REPUBLIC ARTICLE: "FORMER TILLMAN CLASSMATE WILL RUN ON HIS WEDDING DAY"

When Patrick Irwin proposed to his then-girlfriend, Michelle Pestlin, in France last June, he didn't envision running 4.2 miles as a warmup for the wedding.

But then he learned that Pat's Run had been scheduled for the same day.

So that's why Irwin will be out on the course in his tuxedo T-shirt Saturday, celebrating the life of Pat Tillman before celebrating the commitment to the one he loves.

"I can't say we planned the wedding date around Pat's Run," Irwin, 37, said. "But it just so happens that was the date we picked and then the Pat's Run date was announced, which just worked out awesome."

Irwin went to school with Tillman, the former Arizona State star, and followed him throughout his career with ASU and the Cardinals. Irwin missed the inaugural Pat's Run but has participated in every one since, so it was an easy decision to run this year and make his wedding day that much more of a memorable experience.

Although Pestlin won't be running, Irwin recruited 25 friends and family members from all over the country to join him, and they'll be at the start line at 7:05 Saturday morning for the 4.2-mile run that finishes at the 42-yard line inside Sun Devil Stadium, honoring the Army veteran who wore No. 42 with ASU and was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.

From there, the group will head to Rula Bula on Mill Avenue for breakfast, "then take a little nap and get cleaned up" for the wedding ceremony, which is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the El Chorro Lodge in Paradise Valley.

"It's going to be a crazy day," Irwin said.

Many in the group will be participating in Pat's Run for the first time, but Irwin said it wasn't too difficult getting them on board once he mentioned the idea.

"Most of them were all in," he said. "They had heard of Pat before and his story, and I just kind of convinced them what a cool event it was."

Irwin may not be setting any records out on the course Saturday -- "I got to have something left in the tank for dancing later," he said with a laugh -- but he expects to keep a good pace and said he tries to improve his time each year.

With his family and friends with him in the morning, and his fiance waiting to become his wife in the evening, one thing is certain -- he'll have himself a day to remember for years to come.
