Katelyn & Alex

Alex and Katelyn met on eHarmony. After a few weeks of getting to know each other, they met for coffee on their first date.

It was definitely ‘this is something special’ at first sight. We both realized right away that we had never met someone like this and felt a great possibility for the future.
Alex did such an incredible job surprising me when he proposed! We were having coffee at the shop where we first met on our six-month anniversary. Before heading to dinner, he took me up to the rooftop of the building next door and there were rose petals all over the roof and in the pool. He even had a secret photographer capture the whole proposal. If that wasn’t enough, after he proposed we continued to our dinner reservation only to find a room full of my family and closest friends. He had everyone come together and catered the perfect engagement party for us. We even have a priceless video of me walking in completed shocked and overwhelmed with emotion!
I found TriadWeddings Magazine so helpful in searching out possible wedding venues to tour, dress shops, cakes and overall inspiration for the event by looking at photos from other weddings. It was hands down the best and most helpful bridal magazine I looked at.

The couple hosted their ceremony and reception at Millennium Center. They didn’t have a specific theme, but wanted modern and classic décor that would hold up to the test of time. With their style being more classic traditional, they incorporated the colors of navy blue and gray with gold accents and touches of blush pink and white in the floral arrangements.

One of the most unique elements of our wedding day was that my father-in-law was our officiant. It was such a special and personal touch for Alex’s dad to marry his only son to his new bride.
One thing I would change about our day…I FORGOT TO WEAR MY VEIL!!! Our wedding day was as close to perfect as one could expect, but of all the little things to forget, I walked down the aisle without my cathedral veil on! I realized on the alter, but there was nothing I could do at that point. I put it on after the ceremony for a few pictures, but that’s the only thing I would change if I could do it again - not forget!
Our wedding day was the most incredible day of my life! Everyone tells you this, but you can’t fully understand until you have been through it. There is nothing more magical than marrying your best friend surrounded by every person you love and cherish. Feeling all the love and support around us was the cherry on top to marrying the man of my dreams! We were having such a good time dancing and partying with all our friends and family we didn’t want the night to end!
