Happy wedding week to Katie and Michael! As part of our countdown to their special day, we are sharing their story.

The first spark:

How did you meet?

Katie and Daniel do not remember the very first time they met, but they knew each other as part of the Track and Field team at Washington University in St. Louis. Michael graduated in 2018 and took a job in Huntsville. Ironically, he was working for Katie’s dad! They kept in loose touch and saw one another occasionally until Katie convinced Michael to start dating in the winter of 2020.

The adventure begins:

How did the proposal happen?

While Katie was still in school in St. Louis, Michael drove up from Huntsville to surprise her. He carefully schemed for her family to bring her to Forest Park in St. Louis where he popped out and surprised her in front of the St. Louis Art Museum. The scene made for great photos and the event was followed by a celebration with both families and many friends.

Plans are made:

Why did you choose the Huntsville Museum of Art for your wedding event?

They love the elegance of the space, the flexibility to truly make the event their own, and the great location. They like being close to the downtown square for their guests, and think Big Spring Park makes a beautiful backdrop. Plus, Jennifer Goff has been nothing short of amazing to work with!

A moment to last a lifetime:

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?

Katie and Michael are looking forward to having all of their friends and family gathered together in one place. Many of their loved ones are spread across the country, so the opportunity to see them all together at once to celebrate with will be very special.
