Our Story

Katie and Tony were introduced by a mutual friend the beginning of summer 2010. Tony noticed Katie's big eyes and Katie liked Tony's big smile. They hit it off and soon began dating. Tony and Katie grew together over their shared interests of dining at trendy restaurants, thoughtful conversation and dancing to electronic music. By the end of summer they were an official item!

While visiting Chicago, the city where they originally fell in love, Tony surprised Katie by asking her to marry him on July 25th, their sixth anniversary. Katie and Tony currently live in Los Angeles with their four rescue fur babies, two cats and two dogs: Yellow, Bajabee, Franklin and Stella.

We can't wait to make it official and look forward to sharing our big day with you in May!!
