Trisha and Wes are getting married at The Lionsgate Center – Spring Wedding

Meet Trisha and Wes!!

Trisha Ulrich

These two love birds are making it official this spring at the Gatehouse.

Where it all began:

“We met through a mutual friend, who is now our Best Man. Wes and I both used to work at the same company, but since we were in separate departments, we never saw each other. There was a snow storm, and my car was too weak to make it through so our friend had offered to drive me to work, and then out to lunch later. Wes joined us at that lunch and Wes (according to him) knew right then he needed to “win” me. Through his own conniving and scheming to make sure our friend was NOT interested in dating me, Wes finally asked me to dinner and we’ve been together ever since.
 
(If you ask Wes this story it sound MUCH more hilarious of the ways he made sure our friend Michael did NOT flirt with me…. all the while me having no idea).”

Time well spent:

“We met in February 3, 2012 (he makes fun of me for knowing the very day), started dating 2 weeks after.”

The proposal:

“We had just gotten back in town from meeting his family in Ohio (for the first time!!), and I was EXHAUSTED from the early am red eye flight so I asked him to just take me home. I was at my apartment relaxing on the couch, and he went to check on his house. When he came back, he knelt by my spot on the couch and, after some very sweet words and very cryptic hinting, asked if I wanted another reason to love him. He pulled out the box and I started crying, not even seeing the ring. He then asked if I wanted to see it… and of course I said YES!!! After a million more happy tears, I finally dared to touch the ring and actually put it on. Our on-going joke is that he never officially asked, and I never officially accepted. It was very sweet, private, and simple. I love that it wasn’t anything over the top and that it was a very “us” moment.”

Why the Gatehouse?

“We had looked at 3 other venues previous to this, and while each one had something we liked, we didn’t feel like we found THE place. The second we walked into the Gatehouse, we felt it. There wasn’t just some THING we liked, it was some THINGS we LOVED. The perfect blend of vintage and modern, the garden grounds, and even the getting ready rooms just made me feel like we weren’t in a wedding factory, but in a place where our love could truly be celebrated by everyone from our guests right down to the staff. We saw one more venue afterwards, but even then we knew we’d be coming back to Lionsgate. We specifically chose the Gatehouse due to the ballroom. I loved the open feel of it and how everything was in one area. The beautiful stained glass window didn’t hurt the decision either!!! We haven’t regretted a single moment of this decision, as the staff has been incredibly helpful to us, EVERY vendor has said that the venue is amazing, and it’s just made the whole thing so much easier to plan!”
