When Katie first reached out to us about helping with her wedding day, we were so happy to have been considered and chosen. We love the little details already decided for this Varsity Hall wedding. The fact that they invested in a live band is always a win for us! We love when couples prioritize the things that matter to them most and run with it on their wedding days. Cannot wait to collaborate on bright, modern wedding inspiration for this jewel toned celebration! Read on to hear more about Katie and Mark's love story!
HOW THEY MET:
We met at a rooftop party in Madison. Mark won Katie over with his cool facts about space and his dashing good looks, which were on full display at 11pm on the unlit roof. Katie won Mark over with her cool facts about parasites and ultimate frisbee. Our first date was soon afterwards, when we pioneered the “double Greenbush”, an incredible evening of pizza and doughnuts. By the second date, Katie was already comfortable enough to order the Bad Breath Burger at the Weary Traveler.
HOW THEY GOT ENGAGED:
We had just finished a road trip from Minneapolis, MN to Los Angeles, CA. Katie was certain that Mark did not have a ring hidden in the car. Mark was insistent that we go to a mountain overlook for a short hike. Mark managed to propose during the sunset, looking over Pasadena and to the ocean in the distance. Katie was thrilled!
WHAT THEY LOOK MOST FORWARD TO ON THEIR WEDDING DAY:
We are looking forward to bringing our family and friends together for an awesome party!
WHAT THEY MOST LOOK FORWARD TO ABOUT MARRIED LIFE:
We are looking forward to being two kickass married scientists who drive a convertible!
