Haley is currently a P3at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy. Patrick Thomas Cole is the son ofMr. and Mrs. Thomas Cole, of Murfreesboro, Tenn. He graduated from Riverdale High School in 2010 and from MTSU in 2015. Patrick now works as a Mechanical Engineer with Mueller Industries.
Patrick and Haley grew up in Murfreesboro, Tenn., where they met through a mutual friend, Maid of Honor Marisa Underwood. Despite colorful first impressions of each other, they wouldn’t reconnect until late 2011. Patrick was a sophomore engineering major at nearby Middle Tennessee State University, and Haley was a freshman chemistry major on the pre-pharmacy track at Lipscomb University in Nashville. Haley was home for winter break when Patrick invited her to go rock-climbing at the gym where he worked with Best Man, Tyler Carson. After that encounter, Haley knew she had to see Patrick again. A few weeks later, Haley was back in school and taking an art appreciation class, which required a visit to the Frist. She says she “bribed” Patrick into accompanying her to the art gallery by offering to take him to a Predators hockey game afterwards, but no bribe was necessary. Patrick knew Haley was special, the kind of girl he would marry someday.
The wedding day was filled with countless special touches and memories. One of those special memories were the wedding and the groom’s cake that were made by the groom’s mother, Teresa Cole. The wedding cake was vanilla with raspberry filling while the groom’s cake was chocolate and appropriately themed, Nashville Predators. The wedding couple honeymooned in the Mayan Riviera at Secrets Akumal and currently live in the Berry Hill area of Nashville, Tenn.
