I am pleased to introduce you to Catie and Pablo! So excited for their wedding at The Naval Academy Chapel and Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, you are not going to want to miss this one!! Learn more about this spectacular couple below!
How did the two of you meet?
We were both freshman in college at the time, I was in Philadelphia and Pablo was in Maryland. I had just turned 18 and it was Thanksgiving break at home so she went out with a few friends from home in DC. Pablo asked me to dance and kept trying to make small talk but it was too loud to hear anything. We ended up finding a spot off the dance floor and talked for the entire night. We exchanged numbers and have been inseparable ever since!
Pablo, what do you love about Catie?
I am extremely lucky to have someone that I can depend on through all of life’s challenges and Catie has remained by my side ready for what adventure is next. I love that she is a strong, hardworking woman, that knows what she wants, and goes for it. It doesn't hurt that she is also the most beautiful woman I have ever met and I can't imagine the rest of my life without her.
Catie, what do you love about Pablo?
I love his patience, kindness, and ability to always make me smile. He is probably the least judgmental person I know and teaches me compassion daily. We may be complete opposites but we balance each other out and I am thankful to have someone who loves me unconditionally. I am definitely a better person when I am with him.
What is something special about the two of you?
We have been primarily long distance for the entire 7 years we've been together. Pablo moved to 6 different states after we both graduated college and Catie would visit about once a month on weekends. We just recently started living in the same state for the first time since we started dating in 2011.
What do you like to do as a couple in your free time?
We like skiing/snowboarding, going to gym (when Pablo can convince me at least), I like to force Pablo to go to country concerts, and exploring the West Coast where we call home for now.
What are a few of your favorite things?
I am a big wine drinker while Pablo prefers all the beer. We love trying new restaurants but could probably eat Chickfila 7 nights a week.
What does your dream wedding look like?
A bright, sunny day surrounded by our family and friends! Good food, drinks, and music where everyone can have a great time and celebrate with us.
Why did you choose to work with Social Graces?
A friend of my moms from work actually recommended Katie after working with her on her daughter’s wedding. Since we live in Arizona, we knew that planning a wedding from the other side of the country would be extremely challenging. Katie has coordinated and remained patient with all of the planning and kept my mom and I on track!
