How They Met

The couple met through a mutual friend.

Their “Babe of Honor” told Kat about Nate because at a minimum he would help move her new furniture into her home.


The Proposal

Nate asked Kat if he could kiss her on their first date as he walked her to her car. She said yes then and yes to forever on September 17th when he slipped his late Grandma’s ring on her finger while cuddled up on the couch.


The Theme

Natural beauty and bright colors were the inspo for the wedding.

The joy Kat feels every day celebrating life with Nate and his amazing son Noah is beautiful and vibrant. Noah loves rainbows, so Kat wanted a mix of gorgeous colors that would wow them both.

The Venue & Vendors

Phil Hardberger married Nate’s parents, so Kat was over the moon when he offered to marry them in Phil Hardberger Park.

“What an absolute honor,” she said.

As for their vendors, Kat is thrilled with her picks.

“Yes! The florist RichStar Group, Trisean, was amazing and nailed it,” she said. “Absolutely gorgeous and stunningly fresh, elegant flowers. She is as beautiful inside and out as her arrangements.”


Unique Elements

“Keeping it simple and be in the moment,” Kat said. “My babe of honor wore a cardigan for her speech because I had planned on wearing a cardigan and boat shoes for the first date with Nate.”

When the bouquets were forgotten, one of Kat’s best friends, Christine, climbed through the grass at the park to find beautiful yellow flowers.

“Unfortunately, there were sharp stickers on the flowers so they took a few picks and yanked the bouquets from the groomsmen,” Kat said.


Advice for Couples

“Soak it up,” Kat said. “Highlight it and celebrate it! There is beauty everywhere and we often cover it instead of promoting it.”
