Kat and Chris had a warm love, that even cleared up the grey skies on their wedding day. Their beautiful personalities truly showed in their film and we are so excited to share every little detail with you.

With beautiful warm fall tones, and flowers by Dorothy’s Floral they had great decor!
The girls had an adorable 1940’s vibe, hair, make-up, outfit, red shoes, and all! Plus, with this WWII vibe, who can resist a handsome man in uniform like Chris?
They even had a cake made by Bert’s Bakery which featured a piano and lyrics to one of their favorite songs, with a secret scrabble message underneath (that matched the card Kat gave Chris).
Kat wore a beautiful dress from Panache Bridal in Beverly Hills, and the sweetest birdcage veil, and of course her something blue, her shoes with fabulous feathers included!
How they met:
The first time we met was at a pool party in Hollywood for a mutual friend’s birthday. When Chris told Kat he was in the Navy Reserve, she assumed he would be headed overseas the next day and that a romance was strictly out of the question. Conversely, Chris was interested and willing, but he nonetheless convinced himself that nobody as gorgeous as her would ever take interest in him. We parted ways that night, thinking we’d never see each other again, only to cross paths at the same exact place a year later at a dinner party.
Kat was putting freshly-made cookies onto a plate when her friend said, “The surprise guest is here!” Kat turned around and, to her surprise, saw Chris in the doorway. She was stunned to see him again but didn’t want to look over-zealous. Chris was in town for a veterans’ writing workshop and decided to make the most of his night in LA by dropping in on a friend. Little did they know that their romance would be forged that night over a poker game. Chris lost the game, but won her heart.
Over the next few months, their relationship quickly grew and, by December, they were engaged at the top of the John Hancock Building in Chicago. See proposal video here!
