Both Patrick and Ed ordered the cocktail and struck up a conversation that led to love. The Groom Patrick Smith, 49, vice president of Harley-Davidson The Groom Ed Seaberg, 48, director of IT operations The Date October 18 They dated for more than two years before Ed proposed at Patrick’s family’s annual Christmas party. The couple soon began planning a four-year-long celebration, including a series of cocktail parties across the United States, then a private wedding ceremony in Big Sur in 2007, and ending with a traditional reception near Patrick’s hometown in Kansas.
