If you love the Toronto Raptors about as much as you love a good romantic sob story, then we have the perfect story for you. Ex-Raptor Patrick Patterson and his new wife, Sarah Nasser, have finally shared their official Patterson wedding video with the public. Patterson shared the highlight reel from the pair’s gorgeous Casa Loma wedding via Instagram and Twitter.
“A highlight video of hands down the greatest day of my life. Thank you to family and friends that traveled to be a part of our special day. Lastly, shout out to Anthony Hamilton for singing,” the former Raptor wrote in an adorable description of the wedding.
The lavish ceremony fittingly took place in Patterson’s old stomping grounds, where he spent four years playing with the Raptors. It’s hard to say precisely why the couple chose to host their special day in the 6ix, but it probably has something to with the fact that Nasser is Canadian and the fact that some of her husband’s closest friends still play for Toronto.
Several current and former members of the Raptors roster attended the event, including the likes of Kyle Lowry, Norman Powell, Terrence Ross, and Delon Wright, who you can catch glimpses of in the clip.
“Clean up nice for weddings. Congratulations to my brotha @pdpatt for getting married. Had a great time catching up with my brothas,” wrote Norman Powell on Instagram back in August.
It was something of a mini-Raptors reunion as the drinks and tears flowed.
It probably didn’t hurt that the Raptors were also celebrating their first-ever NBA championship at the time. So, it was probably a pretty darn good time.
Patterson joined the Raptors during the Rudy Gay trade back in 2013. During that time, he became a stand-out player on Toronto’s bench unit, According to Sportsnet, the player averaged 7.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game on 43.5% shooting from the floor and 37.3% from deep.
“I want to take this moment to thank not only the fans of Toronto and those who supported and encouraged me throughout the years but every single individual in the country of Canada. Whether or not you were a constant follower of the Raptors since Day 1 or a newly converted admirer since the trade, I truly appreciate you,” Patterson wrote on Instagram after being traded back in 2017.
