Brandi Guthke + Patrick Clark

May 30, 2020

Brandi and Patrick are what some people would call gym junkies, so it’s no surprise that they met at Swamp Rabbit CrossFit, where Brandi is a fitness coach. After nearly two years of dating, Patrick knew the time was right for him, and just before Thanksgiving last year he popped the question. The couple was on vacation in Hilton Head Island, enjoying an evening stroll, when Patrick asked Brandi to be his bride, and she wholeheartedly agreed. Flash forward to May 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic foiled their original wedding plans. Yet, the couple made it work, tying the knot on Patrick’s family property in a beautiful garden, complete with barbecue, homemade blueberry wine, and Brandi in a gown from The Empowered Bride Boutique. It turned out to be the perfect family-filled day the pair imagined. The couple now lives in Dacusville, an easy drive to Greenville, where Brandi still coaches at CrossFit and Patrick is the founder of Allure Outdoors.
