Pat’s tall, Mahlia’s short.

Mahlia prefers sweet while Pat likes salty. Pat loves the big ideas while Mahlia is all about the details. Mahlia is all about the photos while Pat has a knack for the video. With all of our differences, we work perfectly. We truly are best friends.

THEY SAY OPPOSITES ATTRACT, WE CONCUR

We spend a lot of time with our fur babies.

We have 2 cats, River & Rose and our bunny Rory. Yes, we name our pets after some of our favorite characters. Can you tell we are a little obsessed? We love having them in our family! 

About Ivory Door Studio 

Yes, we’re THAT house that puts their lights up in early November.

Even though our families don’t live nearby, we’re very close to both sides. We talk and text all the time, complete with emojis and inside jokes. We make sure to travel frequently to see them. Our calendars are always marked for special occasions and holidays with them. We especially enjoy being able to spend Christmas with our families, switching off each year. 

we say family first, and christmas is best

Christmas is big, I mean HUGE, for both of us – Pat has a Christmas countdown on the whiteboard in his office almost year-round. Every time we travel, we buy an ornament for our tree as a way to remember our trip. This year we're definitely going to need a bigger tree! Christmas is also a great time for us to think back on the amazing memories we made together throughout the year and all of the wonderful couples (like you!) that we met along the way. 

Nashville felt like home the very first time we visited.

nashville is home, but we definitely get wanderlust 

We love experiencing new places and cultures together.

Nashville has always felt like home, even from the first time we visited. While were still living in Florida, and we spent the night in Murfreesboro during a long road trip. When the trip was over, all we could talk about was how amazing Nashville was. After we got married, we moved to middle Tennessee to begin the next chapter in our lives. We are so grateful to be here! God allowed for everything to fall into place perfectly.

While The Volunteer State is home, we have a passion for traveling and making new memories. We even have a bucket list full of countries for our next getaway! With each location we visit, we make sure to learn about their culture and traditions. We have even hosted an exchange student from Slovakia. Timea spent almost a year with us - she's our overseas daughter.
