When Katherine met Jared during her freshman year at West Washington University, their chemistry extended far beyond the their shared pre-med major!  Their old world courtship was highlighted by a first date where Jared brought flowers to both Katherine AND her mom!  Talk about a charmer!

Over the course of the next six years Katherine & Jared traveled the world, seeing everything from the States to Canada, Saipan, London, Paris and Rome!  During one such trip to Las Vegas, Jared asked Katherine's mother for permission to marry her.  An engagement followed shortly thereafter, and the two are now returning to Las Vegas for their fall 2013 wedding.

Over the past few months I've gotten to spend time with Katherine & Jared while we searched for the perfect venue, met with creative partners, and even squeezed in a just-for-fun lunch at one of my all time foodie favorite hot-spots, Milos!  The thing which strikes me the most about these two is their absolute adoration and respect for one another.  Katherine calls Jared "Dear" and he responds in kind.  They look to each other in each and every decision, putting their heads together and never-failing to come to a place of perfect balance.  I have no doubt that they will have a marriage just as beautiful as the wedding we are planning!
