The Rockleigh Country Club Wedding | Katherine & Ralph

Their Wedding Day:
The Rockleigh

Katherine & Ralph’s wedding day was SO. MUCH. FUN. These two are the kindest and most thoughtful people, and that translated through every bit of their day! I loved every carefully chosen beautiful detail, like the photo frame of her grandparents that Katherine pinned to her bouquet and Ralph’s custom engraved cuff links! I had the best time celebrating with Katherine & Ralph and all their friends and family at The Rockleigh! I can’t wait to share all the photos! But first…their love story. : )

Their Love Story

Katherine & Ralph met when they were in high school at a mutual friend’s sweet 16 party. They became fast friends and would spend all night chatting with each other via AIM. Ralph was two years older than Katherine and ended up going to college out of state. During that time they still chatted all the time but didn’t get to see each other that often. About a year later, Ralph came home for a week to visit family and friends and asked Katherine out on their first date.

Katherine told me about their first date, “We went cosmic bowling and to Ralph’s Ices — as “friends”. But we both knew it was a date since we had spent many nights talking on AIM while Ralph was away at college (I was a junior in high school during his freshman year) talking to each other about anything and everything. The kiss at the end of the date confirmed that our friendship grew to something more.”

Want to hear about their proposal story?! As Katherine tells it, “We got engaged on the beach in Punta Cana after a wonderful dinner. He asked me to take a walk with him on the beach (something I always ask to do on vacation). After we made our way onto the sand and between two palm trees, he stopped, gave me a kiss and before I knew it he was in front of me asking me to marry him! It was simple and sweet :)”

When I asked these two to share one thing they love about each other, Katherine said she loves, “his determination to go after his dreams!” And Ralph said he loves, “her sense of humor!”

To the Newlyweds

Katherine & Ralph, thank you both so much for having me be a part of your wedding day! You two are such a joy! I’m honored to have been a part of this special season of your lives, and am so grateful to call you two friends! Cheers to many years of happiness in your marriage! I love you two! Congrats newlyweds!! xoxo
